Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung’wah said something so incredulous yesterday. The politician and a group of Jubilee Party legislators allied to Deputy President William Ruto claimed that Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i and his PS Karanja Kibicho orchestrated the violence witnessed during the Kibra by-election on November 7.

Speaking during a press conference, Ichung’wa alleged that Matiang’i, Kibicho and ODM Party leader Raila Odinga met at a hotel in Karen, Nairobi on the night before the mini-poll to map out their sinister plans.

“We are aware that Odinga, CS Matiang’i and PS Kibicho had a meeting the night before the elections at a hotel in Karen. It is no wonder then that the goons that were commandeered and commanded by Simba Arati, none of them either himself or his goons can be arrested,” the legislator claimed.

He went on to accuse the opposition leader of trying to overthrow the government using violence and impunity.

Ichung’wah stated,

“Odinga and his brigade of goons had other motives with the handshake. It is also shocking that they have now enlisted the support of a few functionaries in government to support their violent endeavours to take over power.’

The group of legislators known for their allegiance to DP Ruto also claimed that Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa, had been taken to South Africa after he was allegedly poisoned with an unknown substance.

“He informed us that he had been injected with a substance and is currently seeking medical treatment in South Africa. We are yet to establish what that substance was but we want to say that we shall not allow violence to be used to intimidate Kenyans,” the Kikuyu MP asserted.
