Karua denies plot to fix DP Ruto, threatens to sue Kuria

Opposition politician Martha Karua has denied claims by Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria to the effect that she was involved in “fixing” Deputy President William Ruto at the International Criminal Court.

Speaking hours after Kuria made the claims, Karua, through her lawyer Gitobu Imanyara, also said that she will institute legal proceedings against Kuria for defamation.

“Hon Karua has instructed me to move to court both here and at the ICC to clear her name and also to hold Moses Kuria to account for his desperate and defamatory allegations aimed at tarnishing her name and reputation,” Imanyara said on his official Facebook page.

Kuria told a rally on Sunday afternoon that he, together with Karua, procured witnesses to go testify against the Deputy President.

In the meantime, a spokesman at the Deputy President’s office refused to comment on the matter.

“All matters concerning this subject (ICC) are handled and commented on by our lawyers,” the spokesman said.
