Kiraithe – Those Behind Coup Plot To Be Named Soon


Prior to President Uhuru and Raila’s meeting on Tuesday, the presidency through its spokesperson, Eric Kiraithe claimed there are individuals working with Kenya’s neighbours to cause trouble in the country.

Government Spokesman Eric Kiraithe, without specifying the country or persons involved, said intelligence reports show some people who are working with the unnamed countries to whip up public turbulence.

In reaching their plot to brew violence, Kiraithe says, the scheme is to create wide conditions of instability, insecurity, lawlessness and strife.

He said the schemers are out to overthrow the government but the plan will spark off diplomatic row between Kenya and the countries once it is announced. Kiraithe said:

“The Government considers these contemptible undertakings to be a betrayal of Kenya and Kenyans. These are acts of treason.” 

He said they will soon pronounce the findings to unveil the persons at the centre of the scheme, adding:

“In due course the government will be revealing the results of our investigations, and unmasking these despicable traitors.”

Kiraithe hinted that a National Security Advisory Council meeting held on Monday concluded that those who join forces with others against Kenya’s interest are also enemies of the state.

He said that their actions are going to be responded to swiftly in full with unmitigated wrath of the law. He assured the public the country is unwavering  in the quest for national security, urging them to be patient on this matter.

The council alleged lately that Cord was plotting a civilian coup and its call for IEBC reforms and sacking of the Commissioners was just a disguise.

But Cord co-principal leader Moses Wetang’ula treated the allegations as “childish” and challenged the state to use its machinery to prove the “wild claims”.

Also, it was also alleged that opposition is going out to receive money from Tanzania’s Magufuli, or from South Sudan’s Salva Kiir to fund their protest. However, Hon. Richard Onyonka said it is only a red herring as Kenyans don’t need funds to protest against what does not sit well with them.
