Julie Gichuru reacts after being linked to Raila's assassination

This is how the alleged evil plan to kill Raila was to happen...

According to the sensational reports, the media personality, who was also getting back to the country almost the same time Odinga was traveling, was carrying a toxic gas meant to assassinate the former Prime Minister before he landed at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).

The news went ahead to indicate that Odinga managed to escape the purported trap after changing flights.

"Hon Raila Odinga escaped a toxic gas killing in the first flight he had booked The evil plan was to be executed by Julie Gichuru,” a post on Facebook read.

However, Mrs. Gichuru has dismissed the claims and called on acting Interior and Coordination cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i and Inspector General Joseph Boinnet to investigate those behind the rumors.

Julie disclosed that following the widespread of the fake news she has received death threats.

"Have some crazy bloggers made VILE, VICIOUS, DANGEROUS & FAKE allegations about me & RAO? This one  you must investigate. I do not believe in harming others. Never have. Never will. Never would. Now I am getting death threats over FAKE NEWS. Pathetic!

"I headed back to Kenya via Dubai with a four hour transit at the airport. I travel light, with only hand luggage by the way. Dear FAKE bloggers, if ANY gas was found on me or ANY threatening items, in this era of terror, I would not get through ANY airport. Duh!" Julie tweeted.

This is not the first time Julie has been attacked on social media. She started attracting heavy criticism after declaring her support for President Uhuru Kenyatta.
