How Ruto Contradicted Himself On His Earlier Statement About Former DCI Boss Kinoti

The president of Kenya William Samoei Ruto yesterday held an exclusive interview with several television stations in the country to update Kenyans on what steps his government has taken since his assumption of office to date on the economic recovery.

But among the questions that emerged was the one on the extra judicial killings that are always happening in the country.

Ruto denied the allegations saying his regime has controlled that to happen and the first step was him firing the former director of criminal investigation boss Kinoti.

"It is because of the extra judicial killings that I fired that Kinoti man," he said.

But on the contrary when assuming his office as the president and making his choices for the people he wants to work with, the president told Kenyans that it was Kinoti who wrote him a resignation letter and he had to forward it to the national police service to advertise the position.

"I've received the resignation of the director of the general CID (DCI) Mr Kinoti and I've transmitted it to the national police service to proceed with advertising that position," he said.

These are two different statements that have come from the head of state concerning the nature of Kinoti leaving his office which has left Kenyans confused.
