Investigations into the alleged assassination plot of Deputy President William Ruto has taken a new twist with reports indicating that an elite team of investigators camped at his Harambee House office to meet him as part of investigations.

The Standard reports that the team tasked with recording statements and piecing the investigations which is led by Mr. Michael Sang camped at the DPs office in a bid to establish the truth on his alleged murder plot and assassination letter which has since been linked to Dennis Itumbi.

The team however failed to meet the DP who was said to be in a meeting and left after being told that he would get back to them.

The latest updates indicate that the DCI is yet to get a response from the DP on when or if he would record statements with the police.

Reports further indicate that the government is not taking the matter lightly with two multi-agency teams assembled to conduct thorough investigations and unearth the truth as was demanded by a section of DP Ruto’s allies.

Focus on team Tanga tanga group

The National Intelligent Service (NIS) has also been brought on board to work with DCI officers from the Cyber Crime Unit to establish the truth on what transpired during an alleged meeting by a group of leaders from Mt Kenya where it is alleged that the assassination plot was part of the agenda.

Saturday Standard reports that a report by NIS placed Itumbi at the center of things and was used as a basis to arrest him.

According to the publication, sources familiar with the investigations revealed that the report has “details of Itumbi’s mobile phone numbers and a statement from a man only identified as Sam, who the police claim told them that Itumbi posted the letter”. 

The team has now trailed its guns on 256 members of a team Tangatanga Whatsapp Group, among them MPs and governors allied to DP Ruto.

They are expected to record statements to shed more light on what they know on the DP Ruto assassination plot and the origin of the letter purportedly sent to State House with details of the scheme.

This comes barely a week after DCI sought help from the United States Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) to trace the authors of a letter with details of the alleged plot to murder the DP that saw Dennis Itumbi arrested.

A source at the DCI was quotted stating that “We are hoping that the NIS can now provide us with the missing link as we wait for the FBI to get us the identity of the authors,”
