Senator Kipchumba Murkomen has said he talked to DP Ruto about an alleged assassination plot by senior government officials.
Speaking in an interview on Citizen TV Wednesday, the Elgeyo Marakwet Senator said that Ruto played down the matter but looked concerned.
“When I asked him, what is this story that you’re being sought by DCI and so forth, he said ‘no no no those are other issues’ you know the way he usually does,” Murkomen said.
He added, “I am now of age, I’m above 40 years so I still saw that his body language is that of a person who is concerned.”
Murkomen also noted that there is a change in the DP’s motorcade, saying that he noticed an extra car. He said a member of Ruto’s security detail told him that ‘some work had been done’.
“I also saw his convoy when he left his office, it looked like it was enhanced and so I asked one of the security guys, ‘there’s another extra car, two or so here and people I’ve never seen before’ and he told me that some work had been done,” said Murkomen.
