Panic has gripped State House after the deputy President William Ruto threatened to name Kenei’s killers.
Ruto who appeared emotional during the burial of sergeant Kenei on Saturday said he will spill the beans and exposed the killers of the slain officer.
According to Ruto, Kenei was murdered by powerful people in government who roped his office in order to taint his image and create a wedge between him and his community.
Ruto who by virtue of being the deputy president sits at the powerful security council that receives intelligence reports is abreast with classified information on matters security.
Ruto is also said to have a team of loyal officers from the NIS feeding him with information even before it reaches the President.
The deputy president who has since opened a full blown war with his detractors said he will no longer handle his opponents with soft gloves lying down.
The man from Sugoi is known to be equally vengeful and if what he said is anything to go by, then we can expect a battle of titans ahead.
The naming of top state house official will be damaging to the government of Uhuru Kenyatta.
Sources indicate Uhuru is already reaching out to Ruto for a truce in a bid to calm the incident.
Kenei’s murder was reportedly sanctioned by senior interior ministry officials together with the DCI who used the highly dreaded Kwekwe squad to accomplish the mission.
According to security experts, Kenei’s murder was the work of a professional hit men.
In the course of his usual PR talks, DCI boss George Kinoti had guffed that three men were at the scene of Kenei’s house on the day he was killed. The three according to the DCI, colluded with a Safaricom employee to delete crucial data from the Safaricom servers.
But Kinoti would later abandoned that proposition and apportion blame on the deputy president’s office.
Kinoti’s attempt to shift blame has been seen as cover up. Many security experts and analysts have poked holes on the DCI boss PR exercises as a scheme to conceal the killers who were allegedly sanctioned by the State.
