Those allied to President Uhuru Kenyatta through Kieleweke outfit argue that the head of state was  aware of meetings held by four Cabinet secretaries at La Mada Hotel to chart the way forward for Mt Kenya region.

According to them, the allegations by DP Ruto were part of a wider scheme to distract central Kenya leaders from their work. Their response came through a press statement released after the summoning of the four cabinet Secretaries.

Kenyans have also expressed different reactions, with some arguing that the assassination claims by the DP seem to be far fetched.

Murang’a Women Representative Hon Sabina Chege argues that the assassination alarm was a false alarm and it was mismanaged, saying that they are some of the things bringing tension and unnecessary political discomfort in Kenya.
