Deputy President William Ruto broke his silence on the chaos that preceded his visit in Muranga County on Sunday, October 3.
Addressing congregants at AIPCA church in Kenol where he attended a fundraiser, DP Ruto strongly condemned the violence witnessed Kenol after his supporters and those of President Uhuru Kenyatta clashed in a battle to take control of the region.
The DP also thanked the women who stood up to a police officers who demanded the church be closed after the chaotic scenes.
Ruto further condemned the police officers for lobbing teargas in the church.
“It’s a shame that a police officer took the stage and called for the service to end. I want to thank the women who went on their knees and prayed and sent the devil away,” DP Ruto said in his speech.
Tangatanga leaders blamed their opponents belonging to Kieleweke for the latest Muranga violence that saw one person killed as a result of the drama.
Kiharu Member of Parliament Ndindi Nyoro pointed an accusation finger at several Mt Kenya region leaders allied to President Kenyatta who he claimed sponsored the chaos that preceded DP Ruto’s fundraising event.
Nyoro directly linked Interior PS Karanja Kibicho, Murang’a woman representative Sabina Chege, Mathioya MP Peter Kimari and Interior CS Fred Matiang’i to the Sunday’s chaos.
“I want to tell you, Mheshimiwa Kimari, na wewe Kibicho, na wewe Matiang’i, na wewe Sabina Chege na hao wakora wengine, mko na watoto wenu, next time leteni watoto wenu na bibi zenu waandamane,” Nyoro said.
