Reports have now emerged that Administration Police officers who were deployed at Deputy President William Ruto’s residence a few months ago after General Service Unit were withdrawn from the residence are serving with anger.

The reports come after a letter from the Ministry of Interior to the DP’s office claiming that the officers have not been constantly provided with their meals and meal allowances.

The Interior Ministry claimed that the starvation has made the officers not to effectively and efficiently undertake their duties.

“This is in contrast [with] their counterparts from GSU whom they replaced and who used to get food rations,” reads the letter signed by Mr Wilson Njenga, secretary, Internal Security.

The letter further noted that the officers have permanently been deployed at Ruto’s residences and cannot move out to good look for their food supplies.

“The purpose of this letter, therefore, is to request that you reinstate the food rations for the officers currently deployed in the two residences for optimal service delivery,” the letter addressed to Principal Administrative Secretary at the DP’s office Abdul Mwaserah said.

Responding to the letter, the communication secretary in the DP’s office David Mugonyi has refuted the claims in the letter claiming that they have provided the officers with enough food since their deployment a few months ago.

“We have provided them with food. The only complaint I am aware of delays to pay their allowances. The officers are under the office of the Inspector General of Police. Their welfare is catered for by that office. Even the GSU were under the IG,” Mugonyi told Dialy Nation.
