Tuesday September 10, 2019-Deputy President William Ruto's allies on Monday called on President Uhuru Kenyatta to come to their aid.
According to reports, the politicians demanded that Uhuru must speak on their “ongoing persecution” by security agents under CS Fred Matiangi’s Ministry of Interior.
The politicians reportedly accused Uhuru of being behind the recent clampdown on them warning that the President's silence would confirm their fears that he has quietly instructed state functionaries to intimidate the DP's camp in Jubilee.
Former Kakamega Senator Bonny Khalwale claimed that Matiang'i is behind the woes of Ruto's allies.
Nyandarua Woman Representative Faith Gitau argued that the police and other government agencies had been dragged into succession politics.
She challenged the Uhuru to declare the side he supporting between Ruto and Opposition leader Raila Odinga camps, saying his hiding in calls for peace is breeding speculation.
Mukurweini Member of Parliament, Anthony Kiai, who also alleged a deliberate plot to frustrate the Ruto-led team.
“The President must come out and speak with the DP. The President has left Kenyans to interpret the issues for themselves. They must come out together and tell us the true position because we are slowly going back to the dark days,” he spoke.
This follows the dramatic arrest of Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro, who has since been released, over a scuffle with nominated MP Maina Kamanda.
Kandara MP Alice Wahome also made the startling claims, stating that Matiang’i and his boys were after them for supporting Ruto.
"There was a meeting that took place a week ago in Murang'a at the home of a senior businessman. There were several other people including the principal secretary interior.”
"The discussion was around how we would be finished. In fact they went further to specifically state that we can clear Ndindi Nyoro," she narrated.
She alleged that Nyoro's close links to Ruto were the main reason for the sinister plot to have them eliminated.
"They said Ndindi Nyoro is a small person and if he is cleared, Kenyans will cry or condemn the government for a short while and forget as they have done with other people," the legislator stated.
