Gedi filed a complaint with the DCI in February this year after the fake sex tape surfaced on the internet in December last year.

Kinoti revealed that the detectives had narrowed down the investigations on four Members of Parliament. 

The four MPs according to The Star are Eldas MP Aden Keynan,  Fafi  MP Abdihakim Mohamed, Isiolo and  Kirinyaga Woman Representatives Rehema Jaldesa and Wangui Ngirici respectively. 

The DCI in his defense blamed the slow progress of the case on the lack of cooperation from the listed MPs. 

Members of the committee were furious that the DCI had not yet recorded statement from the suspects.

"Nothing prevents you from proceeding to call these four members to share what they know in line with the intelligence that you already had," the chairman of the committee was quoted.

Changamwe MP Omar Mwinyi demanded to know on why the DCI had not used his powers to compel the suspects to record the statement.

"Do you suggest that you are powerless as the DCI? How come these four MPs are [so much] more powerful that they cannot be compelled to record statements?" He asked.

The committee also sought for answers over the conflicting letters from the DCI to the to the clerk on the investigations. 

On February 21, the DCI allegedly wrote to the clerk requesting for help in the investigations. 

On July 26  however, another letter directed the clerk to ignore the initial letter citing that it had not been authorized by the DCI.
