Through his legal counsel, Rarieda MP Otiende Amollo, the senator issued the ultimatum to the DCI. Failure to which, the Senator threatened to sue him for defamation mentioning that he was willing to protect his name at all costs.

” We write to demand that you immediately retract the statements you put out and/or caused to be published by media outlets and issue an unequivocal apology to our client for making the impugned statements knowing very well there is no truth to the same,” his lawyer said.

He mentioned that the allegations made towards him were malicious and incorrect which exposed him to public ridicule and embarrassment. Furthermore, he complained that the DCI had published the allegations against him without questioning him on the alleged link to the arrested suspects.

” Needless to say, the said statements are reckless, pre-mature and lacking any good faith in view of the fact that the alleged suspects had not been questioned, neither had any investigations been conducted as to establish a prima facie link to our client,” Amollo noted.
