Jubilee MPs defended DP William Ruto over Jacob Juma's killing

16 May 2016, 20:25

Nairobi - Five Jubilee MPs have cautioned the opposition against liking the Government officials and the deputy President with the killing of contravention businessman Jacob Juma.

The MPs Mutahi Kimaru (Laikipia East MP), Kanini Kega (Kieni), Waweru Ndiritu (Ndaragwa), Peter Weru (Mathira) and their Laikipia west counterpart Wachira Karani defended the Deputy President William Ruto against allegations that he was involved in the killing of the late businessman.

Speaking at Kiwanja Secondary school in Laikipia West, where they accompanied national assembly speaker Justin Muturi to a fundraising the MPs urged the opposition to wait for police and security agencies  to complete investigations on the matter.

"It is very wrong for the opposition to involve government officials including the deputy president on the killing of the businessman and yet investigations had not been concluded.They should wait security agencies to do their work," said Mr Kanini.

He claimed that the opposition had prior knowledge of what caused the death of the businessman and were hence using it to endear themselves politically to the people.

While demanding for the opposition leaders to give the police the full information  regarding the death of the businessman,Mr Kimaru sensationally accused Cord of being behind the killing of Juma.

“Let them come out clearly and tell us who caused the death of the businessman.We feel that they know what caused his death and yet they are not telling us the truth,” said Mutahi.

He regretted that it was wrong for the opposition leaders to use the death of Juma to get a political mileage by accusing the Jubilee government instead of mourning with the family.

“The jubilee government really sympathizes with the family but we really feel when we see some people using the death to gain a political mileage.They should tell the police who killed Juma since they claim that they had prior information regarding the death,” said Mr Nderitu.

He accused the opposition of trying to divide the people of Rift valley and the Central region.

 On his part, speaker Muturi came to the defense of the IEBC and called on the opposition to follow legal prodecures if they want the election commission disbanded.

"Legal procedures outlined in the constitution should be followed in removing a commission from office. Cord should follow the legal procedures instead of these street demonstrations,” he noted.
