Tuesday June 25, 2019 - President Uhuru Kenyatta ordered DCI boss, George Kinoti, to investigate claims that there is a plan to assassinate Deputy President William Ruto immediately he was made aware of the alleged plot.
According to multiple sources in Ruto's office, the DP complained to the President that some Cabinet Secretaries and senior State officials had been conducting meetings to plan how to eliminate him.
"The President then instructed DCI George Kinoti to investigate the matter and arraign those involved, if indeed there was such a plot," a source said.
Speaking yesterday, Kinoti confirmed that Ruto made this claim but said they will commence investigations once he records a statement.
"This is a very serious allegation and we will treat it as such," he said.
There was a flurry of activity over the weekend in State House after Ruto complained.
According to a highly placed source at State House, Uhuru called a security meeting at the house on the hill to discuss the issue prompting the summoning of the Cabinet Secretaries by DCI on Monday.
"As we speak, the DP's security has been beefed up until it is established that there is no threat to him," a source aware of the meetings said.
