Deputy President William Ruto has given Philip Kameru, the Director-General of the National Intelligence Service (NIS), 14 days to respond to Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho’s claims that a poll conducted by the agency showed former Prime Minister Raila Odinga leading the presidential race by 60%.
According to NIS reports, Jakom has a commanding lead of over 60%, according to Kibicho, who spoke on Citizen TV last week.
This did not sit well with Ruto who now has sought clarity on the intelligence reports.
Ruto and his United Democratic Alliance (UDA) want to know if Kibicho’s statements are based on NIS information through Mutuma Gichuru and colleagues.
“The Complainant shall take further legal action unless the Board or the Office of the Director-General of NIS delivers a reasoned and satisfactory finding or response to the complaint herein within 14 days of this letter,” the law firm added.
The ‘unlawful, unconstitutional, and reckless use of intelligence information’ could jeopardize the August 9th election, according to Ruto.
He also stated that he reserves the right to seek the Director of Public Prosecutions’ assistance in prosecuting individuals involved.
