Dp Ruto Respond To Muranga Violence. Demand Arrest Of Known Ringleaders.



eputy President William Ruto has asked the police to hold to account those behind the Murang’a violence on Sunday.

He said the perpetrators were well known.

“The security apparatus is aware of those who caused the violence. Action must be taken against them, irrespective of their political standing,” he said.

Dr Ruto said the Murang’a skirmishes were a continuation of what had been done in Kisii a month ago when some youths were deployed to cause violence in his development tours of the county.

“It also happened in Kajiado recently where the provincial administration was used to intimidate and threaten wananchi from attending my function.”

The Deputy President spoke today at his Karen residence during a meeting with more than 2,000 grassroot leaders from Narok County.

Leaders present were Gabriel Tongoyo (Narok West), Aramat Lemanken (Narok East), Mpaayei Phillip (Kajiado), David Ole Sankok (nominated) and George Sunkuyia (Kajiado West).

Others were Benjamin Washiali (Mumias East), Mohammed Ali (Nyali), Japheth Mutai (Bureti), Mugambi Rindikiri (Buuri), Malulu Injendi (Malava) and former Mombasa Senator Hassan Omar.

Dr Ruto said the spots of violence being witnessed in his meetings were a product of those uncomfortable with the conversion of the empowerment of the ordinary people.

“We do not want the politics of balkanisation of dividing  the country along tribal enclaves,” he noted.

He said the country was yawning for issues-based politics.
