MURANGA, Kenya, October 30, 2020 – Kenya’s Deputy President William Ruto on Friday survived an attack as he was leaving an event at Rurii Stadium, in Mathioya.

In what is viewed as a security lapse on the part of his security detailed, a man who walked towards DP Ruto as he was heading to his vehicle confronted him and lifted his hand in apparent attempt to attack but was stopped by the DP’s security and pinned to the ground.

A visibly shocked DP took a step back as the man approached him menacingly. The threat neutralised, Ruto smiled with a gesture as tom indicated okay.

After that Ruto proceeded to hold other meetings in Othaya Town. Commenting on the incident, Office of the Deputy President Communications Secretary David Mugonyi denied there was an attempt to attack Dr Ruto.

After that Ruto proceeded to hold other meetings in Othaya Town.

He said that the Deputy President had earlier on been presented with chicken by an elderly woman and the man was following suit with a gift of tea leaves but was stopped by the bodyguards who did not know what he was up to and was later released.

“The man was presenting tea leaves to the DP  but was stopped by the bodyguards who did not know what he was up to,” Mugonyi stated.

He added that the man had since been released. During the event, the DP lashed out at former Prime Minister on the budget for the planned referendum on the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).

The DP told off the former Prime Minister for his suggestion that the exercise should not cost more the Ksh2 billion.

“Leave IEBC alone because even the previous referendum when he was Prime Minister cost us about Ksh10 billion with 12 million voters. How do you then expect to spend Ksh2 billion on a referendum with 19 million voters?” he posed.
