It is surprising that the Kenya Union of Journalists has today without verifying facts linked me to the violence that erupted during a political meeting convened by Dr. Evans Kidero in Dandora estate.
I wish to first condemn such acts of hooliganism and violence against innocent journalists who were on assignment. I wish them quick recovery.
However, I wish to challenge KUJ for failing to carry out serious investigations on who might have invited the youths against the journalists.
Rushing to mention me without any meaningful investigations is only meant yo tarnish my good name and to portray me as a violent leader.
It is very unfortunate that my name is being dragged into this silly incident yet by the time this was happening I was with H.E the president in Kitui, Embu, Runyenjes, Siakago and Kirinyaga for voters registration exercise.
KUJ must stop issuing such fabricated, malicious and baseless allegations and attempting to link me with the Dandora incident is truly unfortunate.
KUJ must face reality, uphold professional ethics and carry out investigations into this matter rather than rushing to condemn me as having incited the youths.
I know KUJ is seeking relevance using this incident by dragging my name into it rather than fighting for the rights of journalists.
I urge the Kenya Police Service to move with speed and investigate this matter to its logical conclusion and culprits brought to book.
