President Uhuru Kenyatta’s succession battle is escalating to worst scenarios with Deputy President William Ruto alleging that there is a group of Cabinet Secretaries who are plotting for his assassination.
Contradicting to the Information provided by the Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) George Kinoti on who made the call reporting the assassination alleges, South Mugirango MP Sylvanus Osoro now claims that it is indeed the President Uhuru Kenyatta who made the call informing the DCI that DPs life was in danger.
The vocal Legislator claims that the allegations that the four Cabinet Secretaries are plotting to kill the DP might not be very far from the truth connecting Ruto’s missing security details to the assassination plot.
“Ruto’s meeting of late have been missing top to security organs. When he visited Nyamira recently, there was no presence of County Commissioner, District County Commissioner up to area Chiefs. Under what circumstances would the second in command be denied security,” he argued.
The MP allied to Tanga Tanga team rubbished claims that the meeting at La Mada attended by the CSs was meant for development agenda yet they were forced to leave their phones behind.
However, according to the DCI Kinoti, it is the DP indeed called him claiming that his life was in danger.
This comes hours after four Cabinet Secretaries were Monday morning summoned to the DCI headquarters over an alleged plot to kill the DP in order to thwart his presidential ambitions.

Trade and Industrialization Cabinet Secretary Peter Munya who was first to complain over the alleged plot, accused Ruto of linking him to the plot without proper investigations.
Other leaders include Transport minister James Macharia, ICT boss Joe Mucheru and Health CS Sicily Kariuki .
“We want to confirm we have been having meetings. Indeed, we had a meeting in La Mada and we will continue having meetings because under the Constitution of Kenya, there is freedom of assembly and expression,” Munya claimed.
It is a serious allegation especially coming from the Deputy President who is occupying a powerful office in this land. I think it is irresponsible, unfair and it intended to portray us in a very bad light – CS Munya takes on DP Ruto over assassination allegations pic.twitter.com/Cu4XlnuypT
