Deputy President William Ruto has hit out at his nemesis Interior PS Karanja Kibicho who he accused of using State Machinery and resources to scheme against him.
His latest scathing remarks comes after reports emerged that Kibicho alongside some Mt. Kenya tycoons and a wealthy senator secretly funded a Mt Kenya elders meeting on Friday in Nyeri County where speakers launched verbal attacks on Ruto.
The wars between the two seem to get out of hand and almost came to blows at the JKIA airport last month.
Speaking in Riruta, Dagoretti South,Ruto faulted the said officials for convening the elders and duping them into bashing him.
“State officers should not have wasted taxpayer money by funding a meeting where respected elders were lied to about some perceived political debt,” Ruto spoke.
And even though he did not mention Kibicho by name, his lead Tanga tanga soldier Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro claimed that the state had hatched a mission using a section of Gikuyu elders, to start propaganda against Ruto.
“Principal Secretary at the Interior Dr Karanja Kibicho is the person being used to establish unnecessary road blocks against Ruto. The vote head should be scrapped, as there is evidence it was being misused politically,” said Ndindi.
He stated that PNU meeting which was held in Nairobi a few weeks ago, was among many of the schemes employed for political expeditions against the deputy presidents.
“Kenyans are aware of the political missions being prepared but majority are determined to support Ruto to assume the Presidency, as it has been known by Jubilee party legislators,” said Ndindi.
Community elders, he said ought to be used to fight return of illicit and cheap brews in Central Kenya among other anti-social behavior.
“The Gikuyu community requires guidance from the elders, they should be cautioned that the community is aware of the political connections, hatched to start unnecessary propaganda against DP,” said Ndindi.
The meeting, organized by the Kikuyu Council of Elders (KCE) and attended by more than 2,000 elders, cost more than Ksh10 million to organize with delegates from Nyeri, Murang’a, Kiambu, Nyandarua, Kirinyaga and Laikipia as well as from Nairobi, Nakuru and even Lamu Counties.
Speakers at the meeting took turns to attack Ruto and Central Kenya MPs allied to him, accusing them of “auctioning” the region for personal gain.
