Former Kenyan vice president acquitted from the land saga

Kenya’s Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) has cleared the name of ex-Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka from land grabbing allegations.

Musyoka has been on the spot over the alleged grabbing of 200 acres of land in Yatta, southeastern Kenya. The land previously belonged to the National Youth Service.

Reports by DCI indicated that the Wiper party leader was the second owner of the land. A company owned by his family legally bought it from Bestraco Limited, another local company.

“The subject property is privately owned by Pastev Holdings Limited after buying from a company called Betraco Limited,” reads part of DCI.

The DCI handed over the report to Musyoka on Wednesday at its headquarters on Kiambu Road, Nairobi.

After receiving the report, he launched a scathing attack on the deputy president William Ruto, who accused him of grabbing the land. He vowed to take legal action against Ruto for disparaging his reputation.

According to him, Ruto should be the last person to accuse anyone of graft and challenged him to subject himself to a lifestyle audit so that Kenyans can know his sources of wealth.

“Some people are invoking the name of God to hoodwink Kenyans and must be stopped. If we make a mistake and allow these characters near to power, we will make a mistake,” said Kalonzo.
