An assassination plan against Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki, according to Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, was allegedly hatched on August 10—days before former IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati revealed the election outcomes.

Addressing the For The Record book launch, Defence CS Aden Duale's author, Gachagua, said that on August 14, 2022, President William Ruto's top election operative will be deposed.

He said that the conspiracy was a component of strategies intended to thwart Ruto's rise to power.

The DP avoided saying who was responsible for the scheme and if Kindiki reported it to the police.

On May 11, 2023, President William Ruto and Defence Cabinet Secretary Aden Duale engaged in conversation at the For The Record book launch in Nairobi County.

Today's interior minister, Professor Kithure Kindiki, "is somebody about whom I am unsure whether or not he is going to recount in his book that he was almost assassinated on August 14," he said.

Gachagua claimed that several of their friends had also been paid to flip against Ruto before voting, a tactic that ultimately proved to be fruitless.

"What Kindiki mentioned about how little we value money is accurate. These individuals would be millionaires now if the entire squad had caved into financial offers.

Money was made available everywhere for Ruto's treachery, but great men refused, he claimed.

Notably, Kindiki had avoided addressing the charges in his remarks before Duale's arrival.

Also declining to offer any remarks, Ruto thanked his friends for sticking with him notwithstanding attempts to thwart his candidature for the presidency.

Ruto, however, claimed on January 18 that there were assassination preparations for Wafula Chebukati, the former chairperson of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

The President said, "We all know that there had been an explicit plot to kidnap Wafula Chebukati and kill him in order to impair the commission."

However, the Azimio leaders took exception to his views and challenged the Head of State to make an account to the police.

"No one planned to assassinate Chebukati; if Ruto has proof, he should provide it to the police so they may look into the case and make any necessary arrests. It was political, "said Raila Odinga, a former prime minister and head of the Azimio La Umoja party.
