The deputy president of Kenya, Honorable William Ruto has called out police officers who allegedly brought down a couple of tents in Taita Taveta during the funeral of one of the members of the county assemblies in the region.
Speaking to Mourners along with the invited guests, the deputy president of Kenya urged the family and friends of the deceased to forgive him along with the entire government for the incident.
In an incident that happened today in the morning after, police officers allegedly went to the MCAs house where they allegedly brought down a couple of tents meant for the funeral attenders.
"I would like to ask for your forgiveness on behalf of the government because I know that our government has been visited by the devil who is currently confusing our leaders on how things are supposed to be run. The deceased who is here voted for me along with president Uhuru Kenyatta and so due to this reason, I had to come to say sorry", Ruto said.
At the same time, Ruto accused a couple of people who are in the government for trying to use police officers to interfere with the funeral procession in order for him to change his plans of attending.
"It's so unfortunate that some politicians are currently using the police in order to stop me from coming to this man's funeral. What kind of a person would I be if I fail to attend the man's funeral. He voted for us and so the least I could do is come here", He added.
Due to this reason, Ruto said that this was only going to happen for a short period of time adding that he was going to be make sure all the intimidation from police officers comes to an end.
