The Director of Public Prosecution has broken the ice agitating for a 21 day thorough investigation on Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka.

According to the DPP the opposition leaders who are presidential candidate and running mate respectively could have committed election offences which have necessitated the attention of the Director of Criminal Investigation Mr Ndegwa Muhoro.

In a letter addressed to the DCI, Keriako Tobiko urges Muhoro to “Undertake thorough, comprehensive and expeditious investigation” into allegations contained in the letter.

He ordered the investigation to be completed and file forwarded to his office within 21 days .

The DPP further said he has appointed a group of senior prosecutors to provide technical guidance and assistance to the investigation team.

A voter wrote to DPP seeking to Investigate, arrest and prosecution of  Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka, voter asks the DPP.

Mr Samwuel Gikuru through lawyer Harrison Kinyanjui want Raila and Kalonzo arrested for harassing and intimidating officers.

He alleges the two jointly in diverse date between September 17 and 26 have knowingly made public utterances to effect that their will be no presidential elections across the country scheduled for October 26.

He claims the two principles utterances violates both constitution and the election offences Act when they purport to declare and announce to the members of public that the said presidential election set for October 26will not take place .

According to the letter the utterances were broadcasted and captured in the several websites.

“Institutions can’t reform if they are led by people opposed to reforms. Kenyans are coming for you..Salvage what you can and run, there will be no election with you in office” letter quotes.

He claims the utterances were clearly intended and calculated at and calculated at intimidating and creates hindrance to the IEBC officials.

The officials include Abdi Guliye, Boya Molu, Ezra Chiloba , Marjan Hussein Marjan, Betty Nyambuto, James Muhati, Praxedes Tororey who has since resigned from from the commission and Immaculate Kaddait from conducting their normal and lawful duties at the commission.

He further argues that the NASA leaders’ demand for dismissal of several IEBC officials amounts to intimidating the electoral body and rendering it incapable of conducting the repeat election.

“Obviously, the object of such attacks on these IEBC officers is to pile emotional and peer pressure on the said IEBC officers (to) resign and weaken the capacity of the IEBC from contacting the October 26 presidential election.”

Kiguru said, in the duo’s estimation, such attacks will subject the commission and the outcome of the repeat election to public contempt, ridicule and rejection should the officials refuse to resign and conduct the fresh election.

Raila has called for the sacking of 11 officials of the electoral agency ahead of the elections accusing them of rigging the August 8 poll in favour of President Uhuru Kenyatta.
