Interior PS Karanja Kibicho has hit back at Deputy President William Ruto after the latter sensationally claimed there a plot was hatched in Nakuru to cause violence and disrupt next week's polls.
In an interview on Citizen TV on Thursday, August 4, Kibicho dismissed the allegations by Ruto adding that the last time he stepped in Nakuru County was two years ago.
"The last time I set foot in Nakuru was two years ago. It is very shameful for a deputy president to even imagine that we were in Nakuru plotting anything. It is shameful for a deputy president to lie infront of cameras on a grave thing like this one," he stated.
The Interior PS stated that Kenya Kwanza was playing reverse psychology and intimidating Government officials.
Kibicho pointed out that they had been meeting chiefs since 2017 as part of the regular security briefs.
"These are masters of reverse psychology, We have been meeting our chiefs since 2017. We meet them in open places for security briefings and at the end of each meeting we always brief the media. It is so shameful what William Ruto is alleging, even if it is seeking sympathy from Kenyans, there are better ways to do it than character assassinate people and try to intimidate government officials," He added.
The PS affirmed that they would do their work without intimidation and provide security to every Kenyan ahead of next week's polls.
The Deputy President proceeded to profile regional and three county commissioners who he alleged were holding night meetings to plan violence.
In his speech, the DP accused the Rift Valley regional commissioner Maalim Mohamed, Uasin Gishu county commissioner Stephen Kihara, his Trans Nzoia counterpart Samson Onjwang and Nakuru's Erastus Mbui Mwenda.
"Unfortunately, the President of Kenya is aware. We are asking his Excellency the President in his constitutional duty as the President of Kenya to ensure the country is safe and to stop these people from planning the evil they are planning," Ruto stated.
