I've been warned, I'll be killed if I am seen with DP Ruto - Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung'wa

Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung'wa has disclosed details of death threats he has received over his close association with Deputy President William Ruto.

Speaking from Milimani Law Courts on Thursday, Ichung'wa told journalists that he had already reported the treats to the authorities for investigation.

"I have been a victim of receiving death threats that are with the DCI and the IG and I have been warned that I will be killed if I am seen with the deputy president but we are ready to die for what we believe in," the legislator stated.

The MP further insisted that such intimidation was aimed at distracting the public from the real issue of the alleged plot to kill DP Ruto.

Itumbi's arrest is a sideshow, there's a plan to kill DP Ruto - Ichung'wa

Ichung'wa was flanked by Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi, Nyali MP Mohammed Ali and Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa as they showed solidarity with government official Dennis Itumbi who was arrested on Wednesday.

Itumbi is accused of circulating a controversial letter circulated online which outlined details of a plan to eliminate DP Ruto.

"What is of concern to us is the weaponization of all public institutions in the succession politics of our country. What is on trial today is not Dennis Itumbi or any letters, it is succession politics.

"It has become customary to criminalize anything or anyone who is seen to be associated in any way with William Ruto, the deputy president," the MP claimed.
