Saturday April 20, 2019-Interior PS Karanja Kibicho has revealed the intrigues that saw Deputy President William Ruto attend a public event without proper security and with key Government officials missing.
Speaking during an interview, Kibicho refuted claims that DP Ruto’s security had been withdrawn stating that it is impossible to downgrade the DP’s security.
According to him, a protocol hitch is to blame as DP’s handlers failed to provide the Ministry with Ruto’s itinerary of his tours across the country in advance, and as a result it made it impossible to plan in advance and allocate adequate security officers for some of his functions.
“There is no way anyone can downgrade the security of the Deputy President. It is not possible,” Kibicho clarified.
On Thursday, Ruto arrived for an event in Nyeri only to find county commissioners and county security missing.
The police rushed to the event as soon as they learnt that the DP was around only to arrive after the function had ended.
“Officers had been deployed to cover the Huduma Namba registration and when they learnt of his (Deputy President’s) arrival, they rushed to the scene but arrived when he had already left. It was a brief function,” he added.
The event sparked speculation of a plot to shelve 2022 politics in the interest of development and attaining the Big 4 Agenda.
