President William Ruto revealed four state officers who were planning to cause chaos during Election day in August.
Speaking in a meeting together with Kenya Kwanza members of Parliament, he said that, Rift Valley Regional Commissioner, Maalim Mohamed, Trans Nzoia County Commissioner, Samson Ojwang, Stephen Kihara of Uasin gishu and Erastus Mbui of Nakuru were holding meetings at night to plan for chaos in the country.
The president also pointed out that Maalim was the mastermind of these plans and the other 3 were helping him.
This followed after the members of parliament pleaded with the president to fire such state officials. They claimed that these commissioners were campaigning for the former prime minister Raila Odinga. Furthermore, Rift Valley MPs narrated how commissioner Maalim frustrated them during the campaigns.
The members of Parliament also informed the president to go after the top officers in parastatals who campaigned for Azimio claiming that state officers should not be involved in politics. "We want the parastatal heads to account for the money spent in the campaigns," an MP said .
