As the rift between the president and his deputy continues to get ever wider with each passing day, the war of words from each camp keeps getting more murky, and has now degenerated to barbs of sexual connotations.
Yesterday, Elgeyo Marakwet Senator and former Senate Majority Leader, while speaking in Nakuru County during the burial of nominated member of parliament Victor Prengei who died from a car accident, complained over the deputy president’s recent treatment, lacing his words with salacious undertones.
Murkomen asked the president to say clearly what exactly it was that Ruto did to him which has made him turn so viciously against his once trusted and beloved ally. He recalled how Ruto had traversed the length and breadth of the country campaigning for Uhuru’s presidential bid, only to have him turn against him. He told the president that if it is a piece of property that the DP took, they were willing to fundraise and replace it. Going further with his attack, he went on to ask who exactly perhaps she might be that the DP stole from the president, insinuating that they probably fell out due to a love triangle.
The burial itself was quite dramatic, with an unexpected mass deployment of heavily armed GSU officers to guard the event disrupting the proceedings, and almost causing a stir.
All this is coming hot on the heels of the recent withdrawal of GSU security officers from the DP’s residences, both private and official.
The change of police guarding the DP’s residence caught William Ruto unawares as he was hosting a delegation from Mount Kenya at his home. When what was happening was made clear to him, he tried to reach the Inspector General of the police and get a statement from him, but this was in vain. The IG reportedly ignored all his calls.
Inspector General of Police Hilary Mutyambai defended the withdrawal of General Service Unit (GSU) officers from the residences of Deputy President William Ruto, terming it “normal re-assignment.”
In a statement issued by Police Spokesman Bruno Shioso, the IG said Ruto still maintains close protection from the elite Presidential Escort.
“This is a normal re-assignment of duties within the National Police Service to enhance efficiency and effectiveness,” Mutyambai said, “the Presidential Escort Unit continues to provide close protection security to the Deputy President.”
