The Day President Ruto Was Almost Killed By A Notorious Militia Group(photos)

President William Ruto has gone through a series of humiliations before being the head of state of Kenya.

In the past Ruto has been linked to corruption scandals in government and the source of his wealth is a subject of much speculation.

Also not only has Ruto been betrayed by his political allies but his life was once in danger during one of the Campaigning period.

President, William Ruto, almost lost his life following a brazen attack on his entourage as he disembarked from his helicopter back in 2007 when he was attending a political rally hosted by the then Cabinet Minister, Simeon Nyachae.

In company of other politicians, as soon as they got our of a chopper, a group of youth, the outlawed Chinkororo militia group, reigned down on Ruto and his allies.

The violent youth hurled stones and arrows towards Ruto and his allies forcing them to flee for their lives, with Ruto losing one of his shoes as well as sustaining an injury on his left knee.
