President Uhuru Kenyatta's trusted Principal Secretary Dr Karanja Kibicho has yet again been dragged to murky succession politics within Mt Kenya region.
In June, a section of leaders allied to Deputy President William Ruto accused him of plotting assassination against the DP, a claim which is yet to be substantiated.
And the latest arrest of Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro has seen the 'Super' PS accused of being behind the tribulations facing Tanga Tanga brigade, a team associated with Deputy President William Ruto.
Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichungwah accused the PS of using security agencies to intimidate political opponents, adding that he's fueling the crackdown against those supporting Ruto.
“Dr Kibicho is using these agencies to lodge political wars especially to those who do not conform to his political beliefs. We will not allow people who were appointed to offer apolitical service to use their positions to play politics.”
“Dr Kibicho is using these agencies to lodge political wars especially to those who do not conform to his political beliefs. We will not allow people who were appointed to offer apolitical service to use their positions to play politics," he added.
On Tuesday, Mr Nyoro dared Kibicho to join competitive politics, adding that the PS is silently using security agencies to intimidate DP Ruto's brigade.
"I want to tell our PS Kibicho, please let's not involve our police officers in politics. I listened to you yesterday very professional and I know they (Police) are people who respect the law so let's not misuse them," said Ndindi.
And Kandara MP Alice Wahome went to an extent of accusing Kibicho of plotting assassination against Nyoro and herself. She did not however, gave details.
"I am aware of a meeting that took place some two weeks ago in Murang'a in a home of a businessman. There were several people including PS Interior Karanja Kibicho. The discussion was around how Nyoro and I could be finished," she claimed.
But despite the accusations, Dr Kibicho has dismissed Mt Kenya MPs, adding that he has nothing to do with their current tribulations in the political arena.
He said that the MPs are failing to distinguish criminal activities and political events, thus the dragging of his name to their woes.
“When people are in trouble, let them handle their problems and leave Kibicho alone. They blame me because they want to convert criminal events into a political problem,” Mr Kibicho said.
