TELEPHONE communications by deputy intelligence coordinator in Kwale Guyo Rashid Ramadhan at the heart of Tana River clashes may link him to the skirmishes.

This came out during his cross examination by Tana Delta commission of inquiry's assistant counsel Wamuti Ndegwa in Mombasa yesterday.

The officer is said to have made phone calls at the height of the violence. A printout from Safaricom shows that his handset was used to call various people during this printout. However, upon scrutiny of the document, Guyo could only identify three numbers and claimed not to know who the rest were.

Guyo is among those adversely mentioned as perpetrators of the violence that left 130 people dead, scores injured and homeless.
