4 Cabinet Secretaries wanted by DCI
The 4 CSs include: CS Health Sicily Kariuki, ICT CS Joe Mucheru, Trade & Industrialization CS Peter Munya and Transport CS James Macharia.
The CSs who later spoke to journalists said they could not respond to verbal allegations which are not formally filed by the complainant.
Munya told reporters outside the DCI headquarters stated they had gone through the allegations with the DCI officers and established that DP Ruto had made the call and complained of the alleged plot.
Terming the allegations as serious, Munya said: “The officers have confirmed to us that the DP made a call and complained that some CSs and other senior government officials have been meeting at Lamada Hotel, and specifically on 14 May, to plan how to kill him.”
Confirming the meeting
He added: “These are indeed very serious allegations and that is why we want him to write a formal statement to enable us to respond.”
The Trade and Industrialization CS confirmed that they have been meeting on an agenda to accelerate development in Central Kenya, and refuted the claims that they were plotting against the DP.
“We have made it clear that at no time have we ever met anywhere to plan to kill the Deputy President of the Republic of Kenya or any other person for that matter,” Munya said.
"We want to also confirm that we had a meeting in Lamada and we will continue meeting because there is freedom of association in this country,” he added.
Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti did not comment on the matter that is being handled by a detective Munya identified as Michael Sang.
