The excited residents who had turned out in large numbers to welcome Ruto are seen trying to block Ruto’s motorcade as he was entering the town.
Ruto was waving to the residents who were dancing to different tunes of music as they had lined up in the streets of Kitui town awaiting the DP to address them.
Some of the excited residents however tried to go in front of DP Ruto’s vehicle to block it from moving but one of Ruto’s bodyguards did not let it happen.
Ruto’s vehicle was moving slowly through the crowd as Ruto was waving and leaning on the side to shake hands with the Kitui residents who gave him a warm reception.
Some of the residents while waving back tried to move closer to Ruto’s car to try and shake his hand but the bodyguard who was alone near Ruto’s car pushed them back.
The bodyguard used force to push the crowd but while he was dealing with a group that had tried to force its way in front of the vehicle, one man rushed in front of Ruto’s car and when the bodyguard followed him, another young man run in front and the vehicle stopped.
The bodyguard could do little and at that point DP Ruto grabbed a microphone to address the residents and the bodyguard stopped trying to remove the residents who were already in front of the vehicle.
When the deputy president started talking, the residents quickly surrounded his vehicle as his security detail moved closer while some mingled freely with the residents.
