, NAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 17 – Embu County Deputy Speaker Ibrahim Swaleh was on Tuesday summoned to the county CID headquarters to be questioned over claims of conspiracy to murder two of his political rivals.
According to the summonses seen by Capital FM News, Swaleh was to be questioned over the murder claims and provide any other information on the matter.
The Deputy Speaker was required to be at the County CID headquarters by 4pm but he did not honour the summonses.
Swaleh has been linked to a case where a mother, her 23-year-old son and another person were arraigned in an Embu court, charged with conspiracy to commit murder.
The three however did not take plea in court as the investigation side asked for more time to conclude their probe.
The summons read in part: “I am inquiring into an alleged offence of conspiracy to murder contrary to section 224 of the Penal Code and have reason to believe that you may have some information which can assist me in my investigations… I require you to attend before me at county headquarters on 17th day of March year 2015 at 4pm.”
The summons indicated that the Deputy Speaker had acknowledged receipt.
The said offence was allegedly committed on March 4 this year at Dallas Estate in Embu town.
