Here Is What DP Ruto Said After Reports Emerged That He Has Been Starving His Bodyguards

Deputy President William Ruto has responded to claims that officers in his private and official residences are being starved.

In a statement that was issued by his aide David Mugonyi on Friday, the DP said that he has been providing his officers with enough food.

“The only complaint I am aware of is delays to pay their allowances. Their welfare is catered by the Inspector General of Police,” Mugonyi said.

This was after the Interior Ministry wrote a letter to DP Ruto over concerns on food rations. According to Interior Ministry Secretary Wilson Njenga, the officers are not being provided with food.

Njenga said the officers are deployed there permanently for day and night duties and cannot move out to get food supplies.

“The purpose of this letter, therefore, is to request that you reinstate the food rations for the officers currently deployed in the two residences for optimal service delivery,” Njenga said.
