Things Take Dangerous Turn as Ruto Troops Now 'Threaten' This Powerful Man

Allies of Deputy President William Ruto have once again aimed their cannons at the Police Service, accusing it of being part in the ongoing attempts to frustrate the DP.

This comes only days after the withdrawal of his GSU home protection, which has been replaced with another one of a lesser number of officers from the AP department.

A portion of the blame has landed on Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai, who has also come out to defend the service, terming the changes normal reassignment.

Allies of Ruto on Sunday issued what looks like a threat, cautioning the IG of unspecified consequences for frustrating the DP, telling him that he is "playing with fire".

"Mr IG, you are the most incompetent IG Kenya has ever had. You are a joke and you are playing with fire and matches. We will not stand by as you continue with this nonsense," said Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika, remarks that could further anger the government.

She spoke while in the company of other Ruto allies who had accompanied the DP for a church service at the St Michaels Catholic Church in Nakuru County.

Ruto stressed on the need for peace to prevail among Kenyans, saying that he still acknowledges the need for national calm if the country is to prosper and move forward.

He also indirectly stated that he is not planning on retiring from active politics any time soon, even as his boss; President Uhuru Kenyatta, approaches his retirement.

"We were the architects of the new foundation of the peaceful politics in our nation. Those of is not retiring with the President will make sure the foundation is firm," he said.

Ruto has made his presidential candidacy for next year's general elections public and has maintained that he has what Kenyans need.
