Thursday June 27, 2019 - The Director of Criminal Investigations, George Kinoti, has brought on board the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to assist him in unravelling the alleged plot to murder Deputy President William Ruto.
According to reports, the FBI has been tasked in helping establish the authenticity of a letter believed to have been penned by a CS, alleging that his other colleagues in Cabinet were conspiring to harm the DP.
DCI George Kinoti told reporters that the Cyber Crime Unit was allowed to work with other international institutions.
He noted that the detectives were combing through the registry at State House and the Office of The President to establish whether there exists a hard copy of the letter.
“What we know at the moment is that the letter was first seen on social media.”
“But we want to determine whether it was sent to the addressee as a hard-copy,” Kinoti disclosed.
He also explained why DP Ruto was yet to record a statement on the alleged murder plot.
“If he records a statement before that, well and good...the DP is a senior person and cannot be interrogated on the basis of a document whose authenticity has not been verified," Kinoti told journalists.
Once the detectives establish the source and authenticity of the letter, CSs Peter Munya (Trade) Joe Mucheru (ICT) and Sicily Kariuki (Health) will be summoned again to record statements.
