Sunday June 30, 2019-Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi and Narc-Kenya leader Martha Karua yesterday ganged up against Deputy President William Ruto over his assassination claim.
Speaking at St. Thomas ACK cathedral in Kerugoya town Kirinyaga County during the enrolment of new Kenya Anglican Men Association members, the two leaders slammed Ruto stating that his claims were dangerous and reckless.
According to Karua elected leaders needed to be mindful of their languages and should always gauge their statements before issuing them to the public.
Mudavadi on his part feared that the claim was sensational aimed at igniting political passion.
“I want to concur with Hon. Martha Karua sentiments that it is reckless and dangerous for any leader to publicly claim there is a plot to assassinate him without giving evidence,” Mudavadi declared.
He added that if the police discovered the there was no iota of evidence, the DP and other people spreading the alarming news should be arrested and made to face the full force of the law.
The two leaders reiterated that police should investigate and tell Kenyans whether there is any plot to kill the DP and if true, individual behinds the plot should be exposed.
The duo maintained that the claim had the potential to spark tribal violence and animosity between various ethnic groups like the one experienced after the 2007 disputed elections.
