DP Ruto's Office Responds To Matiangi

Following the bombshell dropped by Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang'i before the National Assembly's Security Committee, Deputy President William Ruto's office issued a statement.

The DP's team accused CS Matiang'i of exploiting public resources and his office's power to win political points in a statement released on Wednesday, September 1.

David Mugonyi, Ruto's Communications Director, denied that the DP was the owner of several of the properties that Matiang'i said were under government security.

According to the deputy president's office, several of the properties owned by the country's number two did not have security personnel assigned to them, as evidenced by documents filed in Parliament.

Unlike the Interior CS, the DP's team did not clarify which of Ruto's belongings are not his.

Ruto's communication director however rebuked Matiang'i for the CS's "recklessness" in giving security to "weird properties" that were not under Ruto's authority.

He also chastised Matiang'i for saying that the DP's mansion isn't regarded in the same regard as State House or the state lodges.

Furthermore, Ruto's administration stated that comparing the number of security guards assigned to the Deputy President to his predecessors was unjust.
