Earlier before the arrival of the DP, armed Police officers stormed and disrupted the burial service of the late legislator chasing away mourners and dismantling tents at the event.
The move by the police raised fear among the mourners who left the function after the move by police who seemed to have been performing their duty as deligated.
It is thought that the move by the police might have been as a result of fear that the function could lead spead of COVID-19, owing to the facr that the DP was to attend.
Ruto had earlier before his journey to Taita Taveta held a high profile meeting with a deligation of leaders including grassroot and political leaders drawn from Makueni County at his Karen residence.
