Political Link Likely in Mpeketoni Attack, Says Ole Lenku
Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph ole Lenku now says the government is not ruling out political involvement in the Mpeketoni attack that left 48 people dead on Sunday night.
Lenku said even as security forces continue investigating the cause of the attack and hunt down the perpetrators, they would pursue possible political involvement in the latest killings.
Lenku has told a press conference that once investigations are completed, action will be taken against the perpetrators and those inciting violence.
While making reference to his recent warnings to CORD politicians who have been holding rallies across the country, Lenku said the red line had been crossed but did not elaborate.
Asked if he was linking CORD leader Raila Odingaâ€™ utterances to the attacks, Lenku responded: â€˜His history is a book Kenyans have seen and read and know. It is not me to say it because it is in the public domain of his political activities.â€
Lenku immediately left for Mpeketoni with Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo to assess the situation. - Capital FM News
