Deputy President William Ruto is on the spot after activist, Stanley Livondo, accused him of attempting to eliminate the president.
Speaking in Thika on Saturday during the thanksgiving ceremony of Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria, Livondo indirectly alleged that Ruto attempted to assassinate President Uhuru Kenyatta not once but twice.
He claimed that a senior ranking government official (Ruto) tried to crash aircraft carrying President Uhuru on two different occasions.
The former Lang’ata parliamentary aspirant said Uhuru broke ranks with the DP following the attempts on his life.
According to Livondo, in the first instance, Uhuru was flying from Kisumu to Nairobi while in the second attempt on his life he was headed to the United States through Dubai.
“If your friend who is so close to you like a brother attempts to crash a plane that you are on board more than twice, will you forgive him?”
“In the first instance, President Uhuru was flying from Kisumu to Nairobi while on the second attempt he was headed to the United States through Dubai.
“The plane was forced to divert to Kenya because of the botched attempt to crash his plane,” Livondo said.
The comments by the politician have caused an uproar on social media pitting Uhuru’s supporters against those of DP Ruto.
While the Azimio leaning social media users commended Livondo for speaking the truth, those supporting the deputy president called on the Director of Criminal Investigation to arrest the politician for making reckless remarks.
