Interior PS Karanja Kibicho has responded to Deputy President William Ruto’s claims that there is a plot to rig him out in the 2022 presidential election.
On Tuesday, DP Ruto alleged that the so-called ‘deep state’ and the ‘system’ were determined to stop him from ascending to power by interfering with the election.
Ruto, who was addressing a delegation of community leaders from Kajiado South constituency at his Karen residence, said their mission will not succeed because he has God and the electorate on his side.
“We are being threatened that there is a system and a deep state that is seated somewhere, ready to decide who will be the president, regardless of who is voted in by Kenyans. Let them bring it on. They will come with the so-called system, we will come with God and Kenyans,” Ruto said.
But in an interview with a local FM station on Wednesday, PS Kibicho rubbished Ruto’s claims that there exists a deep state or system.
“There are many things that we keep hearing and wonder what they are. When people do not understand something they create explanation through mystery,” Kibicho explained.
“It is a term used by people loosely to mean probably bad things. When you are told the deep state, you don’t think those are preachers and pastors. This definition is outrageous as it can get. There isn’t any deep state. We have facilities that you can interrogate things that you think about,” he added.
