Deputy President William Ruto has threatened to name civil servants whom he alleges are being used to intimidate politicians supporting him.

Speaking in Meru on Sunday, the DP said governors, MPs, MCAs and civil servants thought to be supporting his 2022 presidential bid are being threatened with arrest and prosecution.

He was speaking at Uganda Martyrs Catholic Church in Kibirichia after a two-day visit.

Dr Ruto said Kenya is a democratic state and everyone has the right to belong to whichever political affiliation one desires.

The DP, who was in Meru a week after the region hosted the BBI forum, said he should be respected since he is in the presidency by his own right and threatened to name in coming days the civil servants intimidating him.

He cited the case where Meru Municipality MCA Elias Murega was released on a Sh7 million bond after he was charged with obstructing police officers.

“I know why (Governor) Kiraitu is not here. It is because people are being threatened. Why are clerks and people we have given jobs threatening people with cases? I am the deputy president of Kenya, elected, and I have no apologies. Soon and very soon, we are going to call them out.

“They are targeting very junior people including MCAs. If they are men enough, let them come forward and face me. Let them not hide behind shadows. We live in a democratic country and citizens, leaders and civil servants should have the opportunity to make the choices they have decided on their own,” he said.

Dr Ruto was responding to remarks by Meru Senator Mithika Linturi, Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria and his Kikuyu counterpart Kimani Ichung’wah who said that the Directorate of Criminal Investigations, Kenya Revenue Authority, the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission and the Judiciary are being used to harass politicians allied to the DP.

Mr Kuria said the “deep State” is at play against Dr Ruto but predicted his triumph due to the support of the masses.

Mr Ichung’wah had claimed that some elected leaders are being threatened with actual bodily harm and death, if they do not support the BBI.

He claimed the move to withdraw guns and bodyguards from some MPs allied to Dr Ruto is part of the wider conspiracy to intimidate them.

The MP alleged that the disbandment of the Flying Squad to form the ‘sting squad’ was purposely meant to harass and terrorise MPs.

“All our governors cannot stand their ground because of the intimidation they are being subjected to. MPs are also being intimidated and threatened with death. Those who support Ruto are being denied protection. The politics of intimidation and coercion has no place today. We survived during Moi’s regime because people resisted that system,” said Mr Ichung’wah.

The MP at the same time claimed that suspected corrupt individuals have been sanitised after meeting with opposition leader Raila Odinga.

“When you declare support for BBI and then accuse Ruto of being a thief, even if you are corrupt, you are forgiven,” said Mr Ichung’wah.

Mr Linturi said it is frustrating that President Kenyatta has turned against the same people who helped him ascend to power.

“Government agencies are being used against the same people who got the government in power. The DCI, KRA and EACC should not be used to fight people,” said Mr Linturi.

On his part, Dr Ruto reiterated that he will not be cowed and vowed to continue with his campaigns.

“I sought for votes [together] with President Uhuru Kenyatta and it is within my right to go round. I am determined in what I am doing since I know there is an exam that awaits me. I want to work hard so that when you mark the exam, I benefit,” he said.

Gospel singer Ruth Matete penned a moving message to her newborn daughter as she marked her first wedding anniversary but without her husband Beloved John Apewajoye who died this year.

 The Tusker Project Fame 5 winner welcomed her bundle of joy in October, seven months after the tragic death of her husband.

In a lengthy Instagram post, in which she also attached a photo of her daughter, Reyna Toluwa’s feet, Matete prayed that her daughter would grow up to serve the Lord.

“Reyna Toluwa my princess. My love. Am not a poet, but the words I write here, are from my heart. I pray for you on this special day. That you will grow to serve the Lord. You will spread the good news of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ,” Matete wrote.

She also declared that Reyna’s feet will carry the good news.

“As the Bible says; ‘And how can anyone preach unless they are sent?’ As it is written: ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!’ I declare today, that your feet are beautiful. Not just because they look like your father’s, but also because they will bring good news as the word of God declares,” she added.

 Matete remembered the vows she made on her wedding day, ‘till death do us part’ but she emotionally noted that death took her beloved husband earlier than expected.

“A day like this a year ago, your late father and I walked down the isle. Yes, we didPromised to be together till death do us part. But death came earlier than we expected.  I miss him so much. But am blessed to have you as a gift that he left me with. I don’t even understand how I’ve come this far. It can only be God,” she posted.

Even though it was one of those difficulty days in her life, Matete promised her daughter she would be fine eventually.

“Today may not be such an easy day for mummy. But I promise you, I’ll be fine. I have seen God to be the father to the fatherless and husband to the widow as He has promised in His word. Today won’t be an exception. I know He will help us even today,”  Matete said in the post.

 She ended her emotional message by asking for monetary support as she could not yet manage to resume work after a troublesome pregnancy.

“Friends, our till number remains the same, incase you wish to support us.5495849. Whatever you can, will go a mighty long way as am still not able to work. God bless you friends and please keep us in your prayers,” she added.

He says he has observed that Kenyans are following the protocols and guidelines than any other country he has traveled to during the pandemic.

TV news anchor Anne Kiguta has announced that she would like to share with her fans more about her life.

However, she draws a line on exposing her children to the limelight.

Anne has three children, one from her previous marriage and fraternal twins with Jomo Gecaga.

Responding to a fan who asked her about her babies, Anne posted a photo of her and her twins but blocked out the faces.

In her response she explained,

“Gosh, so many of you have said this… was the number one response. Well, I will have to let you down on that my loves.”

She added,

“I’m rather traditional (believe it or not) so I’m vehemently against it. My babies are are all still too young, including the eldest, to be on social media.”

Anne continued,

“In fact I really regret having posted my eldest at all. Mummy already has a pretty public life. They deserve their privacy.”

But not to break her fans hearts, Anne promised,

“A reference every once in a while but nothing more than that for a long long time.  Hope  you understand.”

In another post she still emphasized,

“That is my son. Quite the charmer. If only I could tell you half of what they say! But all these are are to me sacred moments…really can’t share much more.”

Not to be daunted though, Anne promised to talk about other aspects of her life.

Here are the various topics she is open to talking about.
