Former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has claimed that there is a plot to assassinate Deputy President William Ruto.
Speaking in Kajiado, Sonko further alleged that the assassinators, whom he did not name, were also targeting him.
“I am not afraid. I have been told that they plan to kill me as well as the Deputy President. The only person who has the authority to take away human life is God,” Sonko said on Saturday.
He urged Ruto to avoid eating or drinking anything offered to him at State House as he is likely to be poisoned.
“I just want to warn the DP not to partake anything that is offered to him at State House and that is because I love him and would like him to be the fifth President of Kenya,” added Sonko.
He further called for the impeachment of President Kenyatta, claiming that he has violated the Constitution.
“Rais, wewe ndio unafaa kupelekwa nyumbani, wacha kuonea vijana wa maskini, vijana ambao baba zao hawakua chochote wala lolote kwa historia ya uongozi wa Kenya kama deputy president,” he stated.
Sonko, who was impeached last month on four charges among them gross violation of the constitution, abuse of office, misconduct, and crimes against national law, insisted that Uhuru was behind his ouster.
