Monday June 24, 2019 - Industrialization CS, Peter Munya, has dragged the name of President Uhuru Kenyatta into a case involving four Cabinet Secretaries from Mt. Kenya, who were summoned to record statements with DCI over a plan to assassinate Deputy President William Ruto.
Speaking on behalf of the CSs and other senior Government officials implicated in the nefarious plot to exterminate the DP before 2022 elections, Munya said the alleged meetings which they were holding were on instructions of President Kenyatta.
They, however, denied that the meetings discussed anything sinister against Ruto or any other individuals – saying they were purely for development purposes.
“," the CS stated.
“Our meetings were meant to fast track development projects in the Mt. Kenya region which has an equal right to access development like any other region.”
“There was nothing sinister about this and we are surprised that such a wild unsubstantiated claim can come from the Office of the Deputy President,” Munya said.
He also disclosed that the investigation officer had informed him that they had received a complaint from Ruto via a phone call.
