Ruto started his day with a meeting with the clergy and a number of delegates at Garissa Town, before proceeding to open Garissa county UDA offices in the town.
He later embarked on a series of meet-the-people tours in Garissa county as he launched different development projects.
It was however while leaving the Islamic University in Garissa Township Constituency, that one of DP William Ruto's reporters covering the event encountered an unfortunate event.
While recording Ruto's envoy leaving the university, Ruto's reporter/politician GK Malema known as Kiptalam, had his phone snatched by a thief from a crowd that had been following Ruto's convoy.
From the video he recorded and posted on his Facebook page, Malema recounted how an 'al-Shabaab' from Somalia stole his phone and vanished into Mogadishu.
He tried to run after the thief snatcher while shouting "Mwizi Mwizi wameiba simu yangu" but his speed could not match that of the thief, forcing him to surrender and blame his weight.
Here is the video link to the unfortunate event
