Wednesday July 3, 2019 - Elgeyo Marakwet Senator, Kipchumba Murkomen, has protested the arrest of State House blogger, Dennis Itumbi, saying the investigators are favouring one side.
On Wednesday, Flying Squad officers arrested Itumbi over claims that he authored the fake letter alleging that there is a plot to assassinate Deputy President William Ruto.
But according to Murkomen, it was wrong for the authorities to arrest Itumbi because he is not the man who proposed the killing of Ruto.
Murkomen said that Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho is the man who proposed the killing of Ruto the “Saitoti way” at La Mada Hotel.
Saitoti, who was the Internal Security CS, died in 2012 when a helicopter crashed in Ngong Forest.
Karanja Kibicho has been linked to Saitoti's death and according to Murkomen, the PS should also be questioned about Ruto’s assassination plot.
“Arrest of @OleItumbi is a strategy to divert attention from the La Mada meeting&plan.Was there a meeting? Did PS in charge of DCI say Ruto must be stopped Saitoti way? Who complained about assassination? And to who? The authenticity of the allegations is more important than a letter,” Murkomen said.
