Led by the committee chairman Paul Koinange, the MPs challenged DCI George Kinoti and his team to never be intimated by any individual who the agency might be investigating.

Speaking during an inspection tour to the DCI headquarters, Koinange further urged the DCI to avoid being distracted by the media and a section of politicians and instead focus on delivering on his mandate.

"Both the Committee and the DCI resolved to work and complement each other in ensuring that no taxpayers money is lost through graft. They also resolved to ensure all corruption cases reach their logical conclusion," read a post on the Parliament of Kenya Facebook page.

The committee was also briefed on the status of the investigations on contraband goods and corruption cases including the Arror and Kimwarer dams scandal, as well as the forensic laboratory where evidence will be analysed, among other operations of the DCI.

On his part, DCI Kinoti maintained that their investigations on corruption cases do not target particular individuals as his team is guided by the Constitution and relevant laws of the country.
