Deputy President William Ruto, on Saturday 07 March 2020 surprised many with a bold message in when he sensationally alleged a plot to eliminate him and the possibibility of death hatched by individuals keen at scuttling his political career.

Taking to Twitter in an angry rant after attending the burial of Sergeant Kipyegon Kenei in Nakuru, Ruto alleged a scheme to eliminate soon, stating that the only option available for the individuals who he refered to as “the system” was to kill.

He also took his war with the Directorate of Criminal Investigations to a new level, alleging that the DCI was working with individuals keen on destroying him in an alliance to discredit and destroy his office.

“The DCI has been mobilised,for political reasons,to discredit & destroy my office with all manner NONSENSE and to bring me down. Those in this scheme are boasting that I will not be there soon. Since the system cannot elect anybody, they can only kill. But there is GOD in heaven.” Wrote DP Ruto.

The remarks did not go well with a section of netizens who pointed out that DP Ruto is merely looking for sympathy as on social media, noting that he is second in command and better placed to address his concerns.

Others challenged him to file a report with the DCI instead of lamenting on social media.

“Mobilised by who? Seeing that DCI and DPP are presidential appointees, how about you take the battle to Uhuru's doorstep?” Added Steve Ogolla.
