Karua Breaks Silence On Claim Chebukati Was To Be Kidnapped, Murdered, Alleges What Ruto Is Doing

Azimio La Umoja One Kenya coalition deputy presidential candidate in the August 9 election Martha Karua has broken silence after President William Ruto’s statement yesterday that Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission, IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati was to be kidnapped and murdered.

Karua has questioned Ruto’s timing in revealing the heinous scheme and why he is telling Kenyans about it on behalf of Chebukati.

“Why would such a serious allegation of attempted kidnap and murder of Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission chair be made six months after the elections &Why is the allegation by Mr William Ruto a third party and not by Chebukati himself?” Martha Karua asked.

The Narc Kenya party leader also wanted to know why Mr Chebukati did not file this claim at the Supreme Court when the presidential elections results were being contested.

“Why did Chebukati not disclose this to the court during the presidential petition or better still report the matter to the police? Six months into the Ruto regime why has no action been taken if these allegations have any iota of truth?” She posed.

The former Justice Minister opined that the murder allegations are a strategy by the ruling party to gain legitimacy from Kenyans and undermine it’s rivals.

“My take is that this is carefully designed propaganda by a regime desperate to gain legitimacy by spewing outrageous falsehoods aimed at hoodwinking the public while undermining its competition,” Karua wrote on his official Twitter handle on Wednesday night.

On January 17, Ruto met Chebukati and his team at State House where the commissioners handed him their final report of their stay at the Commission for six years. It was at this event that Ruto revealed the lives of the three commissioners were in grave danger on August 15, 2022.
