The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) have opened an investigations into yet another forged letter involving Deputy President William Ruto's office.
DCI swings into action after second forged letter from Ruto's office
This is after State House complained
The controversial letter was leaked this week and purported to have had an official in the Presidency advising the Attorney General on how to deal with the Division of Revenue Bill row between the National Assembly and the Senate.
"Detectives have launched investigations into the source of the suspicious letter directed to the #AG (Attorney General), which is alleged to have originated from the Office of the President," the DCI tweeted.
The letter was signed off by Justus Nyamunga, a senior Treasury official who works from the Ruto’s office.
State House faulted the use of the 'Presidency’ letterhead because the letter did not represent the views of the President and had now been approved through the official channels.
“Nyamunga works in the DP’s office as an advisor. This letter is not genuine and does not represent views of the President,” a top State House aide was quoted by the press on Thursday.
The new development came a few days after another State House official, Dennis Itumbi, who is based at Ruto's office, was also arrested and charged for allegedly authoring a letter detailing an assassination attempt against the DP.
