BY SAM ALFAN.
Director of Public Prosecution has ordered investigations into all individuals alleged to have been implicated in the procuring of “false witnesses” in the International Criminal Court case against Deputy President William Ruto.
Keriako Tobiko ordered “speedy and thorough” investigations on Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria, who made the allegations, and several other leaders.
The leaders mentioned by the Gatundu south legislator are Cord’s Raila odinga, Narc Kenya’s Martha Karua and Kisumu Senator Anyang’ Nyong’o.
“Obstruction of justice and fabrication of evidence are grave offences against the administration of justice,” Tobiko said in his directive to IG Joseph Boinnet.
In a letter on Thursday, he asked Boinnet to forward the file to his office for further direction once investigations are completed.
This comes hours after Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria has been sued by Narc Kenya Party leader Martha Karua through his lawyer Senior Counsel Gitobu Imanyara over remarks he made in a political rally linking her to witness soliciting in order to fix the Deputy President at the ICC.
The Narc Kenya leader said that on the evening of Sunday, she was shocked to hear her name being adversely mentioned by the MP at a Prayer meeting held at Kapsikwony, Bungoma County.
Mr Kuria said that, he with others and Ms Karua were involved in drafting a letter that was sent to the International Criminal Court implicating the Deputy President for Crimes against Humanity.
She in response contacted her lawyer Gitobu Imanyara who was of the opinion that Mr Kuria’s words were defamatory, libelous and actionable. Similarly, she held a press conference at her NARC KENYA offices where she demanded an apology from the MP.
She said that instead of apologizing, Mr Kuria held a press conference at Parliament buildings where he reiterated the same words he had spoken at Kapsikwony.
“In addition, he stated that I met him together with others at Club Galileo in Westlands where we devised a scheme to recruit witnesses against the Deputy President for the case against him,” Ms Karua said.
Following the disputed General Elections of December 2007, the ensuing Post Election Violence in 2007/2008 and mediation efforts led by Mr. Kofi Annan, Ms Karua was appointed Justice and Constitutional Affairs minister.
This case was certified urgent and to be heard on 1 October for further direction.
