He called on all security personnel to do their work of safeguard businesses, kenyans, country's wealth as well promoting peace.
Ruto as well warned police officers from being involved in political agendas by revealing thay that government has many politicians who are able to do what needs to be done.
" President Ruto: Niliweka bajeti ya askari katika ofisi ya Inspector General ili isitumike kwa mambo ya kisiasa. Sitaruhusu pesa ya askari itumike vibaya, ninashauri Inspector General awe mwadilifu na iki bidi atumie bunduki kulinda pesa, afanye hivyo", he said.
His statement comes off after relocating the budget of police from the president's office to inspector general of police Japhet Koome's office.
Ruto's remarks however raised mixed reactions from kenyans online who seem to be against his stance of using guns in protecting police funds.
Meanwhile, Ruto is expected to tour in Raila Odinga's bedrock tomorrow with one of his key agenda being initiating housing program.
