"He is part and parcel of the problem, he abandoned his oversight role," Ichung'wa said.

On Thursday, the opposition leader had claimed the government was proposing tax raise to help realize their promises.

He had said the probe into extrajudicial killings had turned into a witch hunt against former DCI director George Kinoti.

In a rejoinder, Ichung'wa wondered if Raila was saying the investigations should be stopped.

"Is Raila saying no investigations should be carried out on the extrajudicial killings or is he saying they did not happen?"
