DP Ruto's Office Speak After His Name Was Used to Steal From Women in Murang'a County

The office of the Deputy President has broken the silence after a group of women lost almost Ksh1 million to four people who were using the names of the Deputy President William Ruto and Mrs Rachel Ruto. The four people had promised that Mrs Ruto would give the women in Murang'a County Christmas gifts worth Sh10,000 but were required to register with KSh 630. It has however emerged that this was not DP Ruto's program and was a scam incident that the police officers are currently investigating. 

The office of the Deputy President through Dr Ruto's communication chief Mr Emmanuel Talam has spoken revealing that there was no such a program relating to DP Ruto and Mrs Ruto. Talam however says that the four people who were involved are fraudsters and police should take a quick action. 

According to details, over 1,500 women have been scammed. The four criminals are said to have been targeting women as details reveal that the victims lost Sh945,000. 

The Murang'a South police Boss Alexander Shikondi confirmed that they have already launched a manhunt to track down and arrest the criminals involved in stealing from the residents. Alexander Shikondi also revealed that there was no such program that had been sanctioned by authorities in the area. The authorities have told the residents to remain cautious and avoid unknown programmes that require them to contribute any amount of money promising benefits. The security officers have however assured the residents that they will work hard to bring the criminals to book.
