Taita Taveta County residents were treated to an high octane drama this morning at the burial service of the late Mahoo Ward MCA, the late Hon. Ronald Sagurani after police dismantled tents stipulated to house mourners.
Politicians allied to the Deputy President, Dr. William Samoei Ruto articulated that the perpetrators of this obnoxious act were under instructions from above to disrupt the solemn occassion and bring down the tents just because William Ruto was set to grace the occassion.
However, the Kenya Police has underscored that the move by the police was perpendicularly aligned towards safeguarding the Deputy president from any external attacks.
"Police in Taita Taveta cordon off a funeral ceremony. The Deputy president was to attend. The police protected him because yesterday there was a terrorist scare at the coast," The Kenya Police stated.
The Kenya Police's sentiments come just afew hours after two terror suspects were arrested by Special Forces detectives and anti-terror police at the Likoni Ferry crossing channel in Mombasa.
