Wednesday June 26, 2019 - Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) have told Deputy President William Ruto to record a statement with the police if he wants a thorough investigation into an assassination plot where he is allegedly a target.

On Sunday, Ruto made a distress call to the DCI, notifying him that his life is in danger and mentioned four Cabinet Secretaries as people who were planning to harm him.

However when summoned by the DCI on Tuesday, Ruto refused to record a statement.

“He has not recorded any statement with us,” a DCI officer stated.

“Without the complainant’s statement, it is difficult to undertake an investigation,” he added.

Ruto is understood to be adamant to record a statement with any other DCI officer, insisting that he can only do so before DCI Director, George Kinoti.

But Kinoti, when contacted said he has confidence in the Investigating Officer, who will record statements from all those mentioned in the alleged plot and also speak to the complainant.

Michael Sang, who heads the Economic Crimes Unit, is handling the matter and is the one who summoned more than 30 officials who attended a meeting at La Mada Hotel in Nairobi in mid-May, where Ruto claims they discussed his elimination.
