DCI detectives have summoned West Pokot Deputy Governor Robert Komole over the ongoing banditry menace in North Rift.
The summon comes barely a day after Tiaty MP William Kamket was arrested for alleged incitement in the region leading to the unrest and death of innocent Kenyans.
The MP was however released shortly after interrogation is set to be summoned again in two weeks over the same allegations.

Speaking after his release, Kamket confirmed that he was released on police bond but his arrest as targeted saying he is being used as a sacrificial lamb in everything happening in North Rift.
The news comes days after Interior CS Kithure Kindiki promised painful legal consequences to those facilitating the attacks including public officials and opinion leaders.
“The Government is committed to provide a firm policy framework for eradication of banditry, encouraging and rewarding security officers who demonstrate exceptional valour and risk their lives to ensure banditry threats are neutralized and stolen livestock is recovered.
Conversely, security officers, public officials and opinion leaders of whatever description who facilitate banditry will face painful legal consequences.” said the CS
