Speaking to members of the press in Eldoret, Sudi and Kositany termed the investigations by the DCI as biased and political.

The leaders said they were not aware of the attack and only came to learn about it moments after it happened. They indicated that the attack was staged by rivals to depict close allies of Ruto in the North-Rift region in bad light.

“We are ready to bear the brunt. We are there for justice. We are always preaching piece. We are heading to Nakuru to go and listen to this nonsense. It is pure nonsense. Whatever they want to do, we are ready for it,” Kositany said moments before honoring DCI summons.

So far, 17 people who were arrested in connection to the same will face four charges in court; attempted murder, malicious damage to property and incitement offences.
