Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka has presented himself at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) headquarters along Kiambu Road over claims that he illegally acquired his Yatta land.

It will be the second time this year that the former vice president is appearing before authorities.

In January this year, Kalonzo was accompanied by his legal team and other Wiper leaders to the DCI offices, to prove his innocence and pile pressure on Deputy President William Ruto to also appear before DCI to shed light on land grabbing claims lodged against him.

Kalonzo would then defend himself over claims by the DP alleging that he illegally acquired 200 acres of land belonging to the National Youth Service in Yatta, Machakos County.

He termed the claims as wild and desperate propaganda, describing himself as a person of “high moral and ethical standards.”

“I have nothing to hide and I challenge the authorities to open an investigation into this matter. I am today presenting myself for investigation by the DCI as well as the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission,” Kalonzo said.
