Nakuru Town East MP David Gikaria is currently being interrogated by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) in Nakuru over the rising insecurity in the county.

Gikaria was earlier Tuesday summoned to record a statement at the Regional DCI Offices in Nakuru.

Area County Criminal Investigation Officer Anthony Sunguti said the lawmaker was expected to appear at 9 am today for questioning over security-related issues.

The summons comes a day after a security meeting between members of the public, leaders, and security personnel was held in Mawanga area following the murder of six women in a span of months.

Residents have blamed the rising insecurity cases on suspected 'Confirm' gang members.

In the meeting, locals claimed that some politicians have been funding and protecting the gang.

The Regional Commissioner Mohamed Maalim has convened a meeting with the Regional Security Committee to deliberate on further action to contain the insecurity issue.
