“Those spreading these lies are agents of the devil, they should be defeated. I wonder why some people behave like pigs?” said Kabogo.
The letter also indicates that Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika, Kenya Revenue Authority officials, former MP Harun Mwau, judicial officials among others are also wanted for questioning.
“We hereby give notice that the following persons are wanted in one regard or the other (as specified below) in relation to affidavits and confessions made by Baktash Akasha, Ibrahim Akasha, and Vijayghiri Goswami…in the course of their criminal conduct,” read the letter,” read the letter.
Over six months ago a similar letter was in circulation in the social media and was involving Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho.
Joho, however, wrote to Interpol seeking clarification on the matter saying it had tarnished his image. The Interpol dismissed the letter as fake.
The revelations were made in a letter by Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti to Joho on Wednesday clarifying that there were no such proceedings by the international criminal police organization against him.
“Please be informed that the letter which has been circulating in the social media pertaining to your client and others that are being investigated and being sought by Interpol is not true. The document citing that was a forgery,” a letter was written on behalf of the DCI boss by the head of investigations at DCI Mr. John Kariuki reads.
