The deputy president was among the attendants at Sergeant Kenei’s Funeral service in his Solai home village in Nakuru.
Speaking during the funeral service, William Ruto stated that Kenei was a hardworking man and they had a good working relationship.
Ruto stated until his demise he did not know that Kenei was the son of his long time friend Mr. Chesang. He recalled Kenei’s father Mr. Chesang visiting him at his rural home in Surgoi sometimes back.
“It is quite unfortunate that after the death of Kenei that’s when I came to realize that he was the son of my close friend Mr. Chesang. I know Chesang well and at some point he paid me a visit at my rural home in Surgoi” Ruto said.
DP Ruto gave his account on the intrigues of the events at his office that led to sergeant Kenei being murdered. He said he came to know of the fake arm deal after the News of Rashid Echesa arrest broke.
“I called Kenei to my office together with three other officers he works with at my office. I asked kenei to explain to me what happened and he expressed himself. I also questioned the other officers Kenei works with and they gave me their accounts on the events that took at my office while I was away.” Ruto told Mourners.
Ruto warned his political enemies for dragging the fake arms tender deal to his office.
“Issues to do with arms have no relation with my office. Am urging the DCI to tell us why my office was used, who killed Kenei and Why” Ruto said
Ruto while condoling with the family of the bereaved promised to make sure that the perpetrators of the heinous act are arrested and charged.
DP said fake arms deal and Kenei murder were elaborate schemes orchestrated to undermine and destroy his office and his political career.
“The DCI has been mobilised,for political reasons,to discredit & destroy my office with all manner NONSENSE and to bring me down. Those in this scheme are boasting that I will not be there soon. Since the system cannot elect anybody, they can only kill. But there is GOD in heaven.” Ruto stated
