“We have agreed with the Inspector General and Secretary of the Interior Council that there is no member of any meeting .. be it the County Assembly, the National Assembly and the Senate without the speaker knowing. “Said Lusaka.

This comes after Senate sessions were adjourned early after Meru Senator Mithika Linturi was arrested after leaving Chambers.

Reports on Linturi’s arrest were brought by Senator Aaron Cheruiyot, who said he had received a call from Linturi informing him that he had been arrested by DCI officials.

Speaker Lusaka also said that he had conspired with IG Mutymbai and CS Fred Matiangi over the arrest of Linturi that he would not appear before DCI officials on Thursday.

The Meru senator was expected to report Thursday to DCI for questioning on the day the Senate will discuss the Bridge Building Program (BBI) Bill.

In front of Parliament, Senator Linturi did not say why he was arrested saying that he was arrested after I left the rooms on my way home.

“The few hours I have been in the hands of my brother (DCI Boss George Kinoti) was not one of the best experiences to say a few. I must thank my colleagues who have seen the need to stand with me and not for a reason, ”he said.

“Today is a difficult day in the history of this country. When you saw fit to call on the Senate to discuss proposed changes could occur. I find it absurd to be called by DCI on that important day and it is the most annoying, ”added Senator Linturi.

Linturi thanked his colleagues for the support they gave him after his arrest on Wednesday afternoon.

“This House and you Mr. Speaker have shown leadership because we would never know what will happen next,” the Meru Senator said.
