Narok Senator Ledama ole Kina has called for the resignation of the Inspector General of Police Japheth Koome for what he says is a failure to protect private property.
In a tweet, ole Kina also called for the arrest of Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung'wa. who also serves as the leader of majority in the National Assembly.
"Arrest Kimani Ichung'wa and (Japheth) Koome must resign and be prosecuted for failing to protect private property. Both should be sent to the International Criminal Court," he tweeted.
Ole Kina spoke after the invasion of properties belonging to former President Uhuru Kenyatta and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga by unknown persons.
On Monday, March 27, 2023, a mob stormed former Presidents Jomo and Uhuru Kenyatta's farm in Ruiru.
The gang invaded the multi-billion property well-armed with machetes and power saws before they began to cut down eucalyptus trees and carted away sheep grazing after accessing the land from Kamakis along the Eastern Bypass.
Later on Monday, the forest cover on the property was set ablaze at night.
The forest cover is said to have been set ablaze by a group of unknown persons who invaded the farm and looted property of unknown value.
Similar attacks were witnessed at opposition leader Raila Odinga's East Africa Spectre Limited, a gas plant situated along Mombasa Road.
Speaking during the opposition's anti-government protests in Kibera, Nairobi, Raila blamed the attacks on senior Kenya Kwanza leaders.
"Those cowards sent goons today to Uhuru Kenyatta’s farm. They have also resorted to sending people to my Spectre factory. That is an act of crime and stupidity," Raila lamented.
"We have followed the constitution in our politics and protests. Those invading other people’s farms and factories are cowards."
