William Ruto, the vice president, seemed to be trembling in anticipation of the general election the following week.
He had previously warned of potential vote tampering by the Deep State.
In response to alleged efforts to rig the forthcoming general election, he wrote to Chairman Chebukati of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).
Through his National Chief Agent, Kithure, Ruto accused President Uhuru Kenyatta of participating in a plot to rig the election in a letter.
Kindiki contended that the ballots cast in favor of Raila on August 9 were tainted by the use of police personnel and national government officials.

He said that the government had turned to voter bribery by sending out administrators on election day to influence voters in the strongholds of the Kenya Kwanza.
