The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) has denied claims that they summoned rapper Kennedy Tarriq Ombima alias King Kaka.
Through its official Twitter handle, the DCI termed the summons raised by Kinga Kaka as falsehoods and warned Kenyans against using the directorate for publicity.
“We wish to condemn strongly false information being peddled through social media to the effect that one King Kaka has been summoned. Nobody from DCI has summoned him.
“Anybody wishing for publicity should be warned to desist from using the DCI as a platform in seeking media attention,” read the tweet from the DCI.
In a rejoinder, however, King Kaka insisted that a call was made to him by an alleged DCI officer identified only as Onyancha.
According to King Kaka, the spymaster should investigate the call and the person who summoned him to the DCI’s room 304.
“The Number that called us claiming to be CID is +254 746 541 000, and threatened us saying they know our whereabouts, ‘it’s either you come to us or we come for you because where you live’. Officer Onyancha and said Room 304. Please investigate.”
According to the rapper, the aborted summon was meant to discredit him in the eyes of the public.
Flanking King Kaka in the Tuesday morning march was activist Boniface Mwangi, who affirmed that the Wajinga Nyinyi star had confirmed to him that he had indeed been summoned.
I have spoken to @RabbitTheKing and he informs me that @DCI_Kenya have summoned him. His friends, fellow artistes and Kenyans of goodwill are joining him at DCI Headquarters, Kiambu Road, at 12pm. If you're able to join us, see you there. #IstandWithKingKaka #WaiguruSuesKingKaka pic.twitter.com/XWxpySBcOC— Boniface Mwangi (@bonifacemwangi) December 17, 2019
