Tuesday June 25, 2019 - Deputy President William Ruto’s security detail has been tripled on President Uhuru Kenyatta’s orders following claims that his life is in danger.
This is after it emerged that four Cabinet Secretaries from Mt. Kenya region and other well-connected State officials were plotting to assassinate him.
Following the death threats on his Deputy, Uhuru summoned all security bosses at State House, including the no-nonsense Interior CS, Fred Matiang’i, and his PS Karanja Kibicho, for a meeting.
It is from the meeting that Uhuru ordered CSs Peter Munya (Trade), Cicily Kariuki (Health), Joe Mucheru (ICT) and James Macharia of Transport to be investigated over the murder plot.
Uhuru also ordered Principal Secretaries alongside parastaral bosses to be summoned by the DCI to shed more light on the alleged plot.
Consequently, the 4 CSs and 10 top State bosses have since been summoned and availed themselves to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) offices for questioning.
