Deputy President William Ruto has accused unnamed individuals from the Office of the President for being behind the distribution of threat leaflets in some parts of the country.
Speaking in Eldoret on Monday, the DP claimed that he knows the people behind the distribution of them.
“Those who are sponsoring evil, those who are sponsoring pamphlets, we know you,” Ruto said.
He called on President Uhuru Kenyatta to warn the said individuals at his office to desist from causing unrest in the country.
” I want to tell my friend Mr President, the same way you told off Kinoti when he started that nonsense of post-election violence, please tell off the characters at the office of the president who are now printing pamphlets to cause disharmony in the Republic of Kenya, they need to stop because they are not about to succeed.”
He promised to send the unnamed individuals’ home if he wins August 9 elections .
On Sunday, Interior PS Karanja Kibicho said individuals spreading hate and threat leaflets will be arrested.
Kibichio said that the government was privy to threats of forcing people to support a particular faction.
He noted that a multi-agency team has already been dispatched to handle the matter.
Kibichio said the elections will not be won through coercion or fearmongering but persuasion.
