Gatundu South Member of Paliament Moses Kuria has said that he initiated the meetings at La Mada hotel.
I a televisised interview at NTV on Tuesday, Kuria said that he led the meeting since he is the ‘coordinator of development matters in Mt Kenya region’.
The meeting pulled together Principal Secretaries, Cabinet Secretaries, entrepreneurs and senators among others.
“This whole meeting of La Mada including the choice of the hotel, I’m the one who initiated it because I am the coordinator of development in our region. Let us believe the investigative agencies are going to tell us the truth. Once they give us the truth it’ll be a turning point for this country,” said Mr Kuria.
The outspoken lawmaker however distanced himself from the meeting cited by DP Ruto.
Mkarimu Media could not independently verify the claims form the MP.
This comes at the dawn of the news that Deputy President William Ruto had made a report at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) over an alleged plot to assassinate him.
Three Cabinet Secretaries were summoned by the DCI on Monday over an alleged plot to assassinate Deputy President William Ruto. The plot was allegedly hatched at the hotel.
They dismissed the claims.
Speaking on behalf of his colleagues, Trade Industrialisation CS Peter Munya said the claims were baseless despite confirming the meetings happened.
Munya said that the DCI had summoned them following a complaint from Ruto.
“They (DCI) have confirmed to us that DP Ruto made a call and complained that some CSs together with other senior government officers have been meeting at La Mada; He gave us specific dates of 14th May 2019,” Munya said.
