Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung'wa has sensationally claimed that Deputy President William Ruto's circle is concerned about a threat against the life of the DP.

Ichung'wa spoke a few days after Ruto publicly claimed that his life was in danger after he suggested that one of his bodyguards may have been murdered to scare him.

The Kikuyu MP said Ruto's team did not take lightly the emerging terror alerts - claiming such incidents had in the past been used as a cover up for a political assassination.

"We get concerned when we are talking about this things (threat to Rut's life), there is an escalation of terror alerts in the country and you remember what happened in Mandera the other day. I get concerned because just before JM Kariuki was murdered there were bombings here at OTC. We have to be very careful when talking about threats to life," Ichungwa stated.

The legislator further claimed that a past security breach at Ruto's rural home in Sugoi in the run up to the 2017 general election was made to look like a terror attack.

"Remember in the run up to the 2017 General Election, William Ruto's house in Sugoi was attacked and a GSU officer unfortunately lost his life. I do not know of any press conference that the DCI did to dramatize and that time it was made to look like a terror attack," he added.

Ichung'wa claimed that in some instances police had been instructed by people in the so-called system to keep off Ruto's functions and in other instances police officers allegedly were instructed tnot to act in instances where the DP's security was threatened.
