Gatundu Member of Parliament Moses Kuria has claimed his life is in danger.
Speaking on Saturday, July 30, Kuria who is eyeing Kiambu County’s Gubernatorial seat alleged that President Uhuru Kenyatta has threatened to take his life.
Kuria in an open letter to Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai said that the President is conspiring to scuttle his bid for Kiambu county’s top seat.
“Dear IG Mutyambai, while your boss Uhuru is busy threatening my life, you are providing police in three land rovers under the command of an OCS to my competitor UDA’s Kimani Wamatangi in all his meetings,” Kuria said.
Kuria further argued that the alleged security accorded to Wamatangi is much higher compared to that of the sitting governor, Martin Wambora.
“Not even the governor is getting this level of security. Treat us equally and more so those whose lives are in danger,” Kuria argued.
Kuria’s allegations come after Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro said an insider from State House leaked information stating that Uhuru has been holding meetings to frustrate his, Kuria’s and Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichungwa’s bid for office ahead of the August 9 General Elections.
Nyoro further claimed that the meetings were held at State House Nakuru aimed at targetting Ruto’s close allies.
“I want to tell the President that we have been informed that you are planning to harm Deputy President William Ruto. The President is planning to target Moses Kuria, Ndindi Nyoro and Kimani Ichungwa,” Nyoro said.
Ruto also made allegations against Uhuru, stating that the Head of State was targeting him.
In a statement that shocked the country, Ruto who was on the campaign trail in Nandi on Friday, July 29 asked Uhuru to leave his (Ruto’s) kids out of their political fallout.
“I want to ask the President not to be the source of threats in Kenya. Stop threatening us. Your work is to ensure that all Kenyans are4 safe. Stop telling us that we will know that you are President. We are not people who can be threatened. We are the ones who elected you,” the DP said.
By the time of going to press, President Uhuru had not yet responded to the DP and his cronies.
