DP William Ruto’s allies now want President Uhuru Kenyatta to come clean on what they describe as a vicious state clampdown on them.
The politicians claimed that Kenyatta must speak up on their “ongoing persecution” by security agents under Fred Matiangi’s Ministry of Interior.
Kenyatta’s silence, they warned, would confirm their fears that he has quietly instructed state functionaries to silence and intimidate Ruto’s faction in Jubilee. Nyandarua Woman Representative Faith Gitau said it was now clear the police and other government agencies had been roped into succession politics.
Mukurwe-ini MP Anthony Kiai has alleged a deliberate plot to intimidate Ruto’s associates.
