A helicopter belonging to Pokot South Member of Parliament David Pkosing was grounded yesterday night over claims that it was being used to ferry fire arms and bullets to bandits in West Pokot.
The chopper registration number 5Y-DPL underwent forensic examinations at the Wilson Airport as its owner was questioned for the second day by detectives.
Pkosing spent the better part of the day at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) headquarters. He left shortly before 7pm and once again defended himself.
“We were told to come back and answer to issues of the commercialization of bandits, that the cows are being stolen are normally handed over to Mheshimiwa so he should respond to money laundering,” said Pkosing’s lawyer Danstan Omari.
“We have come and the same questions have been put to Mheshimiwa, he has responded that all his life, he has never been in the business of selling or buying cattle.”
The green and white helicopter belonging to the embattled legislator became a subject of investigation after it was photographed transporting seven men who had been arrested and released by the Kitale Law Courts over suspected involvement in banditry at Kainuk.
“The green and white chopper is mine, the white chopper that is doing rounds on social media is not mine. Is it wrong for a Pokot to own a chopper?” Posed Pkosing.
