Friday June 21, 2019 - It seems President Uhuru Kenyatta has made good his threat to crush Tanga Tanga team that is hell-bent on ruining his legacy.
This is after four Mt. Kenya leaders allied to Deputy President William Ruto claimed that they have suddenly found themselves on the receiving end, allegedly because of their support for Ruto.
Speaking yesterday, MPs Kimani Ngunjiri (Bahati), Ndindi Nyoro (Kiharu), Rahab Mukami (Nyeri) and Alice Wahome (Kandara) sensationally claimed that the State has resorted to using the Interior Ministry to deal with them squarely for disrespecting Uhuru.
Wahome noted that a land case pitting her against the Koinange family which was concluded in 2012 has been revived, and the file forwarded to the Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
She found the move questionable and malicious, considering that the case had already been settled, days after faulting Uhuru's attacks against Ruto's Mt. Kenya allies.
“The revival of the case is being engineered by the State and this is meant to intimidate me to stop supporting the DP.”
“I don’t think I am ready for this,” she said.
Mukami is also claiming that she has to sneak out of Parliament after receiving information that police were waiting to arrest her in relation to remarks she made in Nyeri County while accompanying Ruto last weekend.
She said that a colleague sneaked her out of the legislative house on Monday, in a bid to avoid the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) officers who were hunting her down.
“It is clear the DCIO Nyeri received the orders from somebody else and not his boss”
“We want to know who is misusing the security apparatus to harass elected leaders in Mt. Kenya region for solely supporting the DP,” she said.
On the other hand, Ngunjiri has also claimed that police officers have been visiting his offices and have sought access to his bank accounts, a situation he has blamed on Interior Principal Secretary, Karanja Kibicho.
Likewise, Nyoro claimed that he is receiving phone calls warning him against sticking to his route as Ruto's supporter.
