Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei has warned investigative agencies against targeting the Kalenjin community in the fight against corruption.
Speaking during an event in the county, Cherargei expressed concern over what he termed as ethnic profiling by the agencies in the pretext of fighting graft.
He claimed that the behaviour of the investigating officers was fishy as they appear to target individuals from certain communities.
The senator revealed that he has in the past chaired a multi-agency meeting where they deliberated on how to effectively fight graft in the country.
He noted that in the meeting, he was candid with the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji and Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) George Kinoti on the specific direction that the fight against the vice should take.
"In the meeting, I was very clear to DPP Noordin Haji and DCI George Kinoti not to use the fight against graft to target individuals or communities," said Cherargei on Saturday.
He, however, assured residents that leaders from the Rift Valley region would ensure that the community doesn't suffer any form of victimisation.
"We are not going to sit back and watch the careers of our sons and daughters being ended unfairly. Do not use the fight against graft to target 2022 politics," added the senator.
