DP Ruto’s bodyguards protect him from attack (PHOTOS)

Deputy President William Ruto’s bodyguards were forced to save him after a man attempted to assault him on Friday the 30th of October 2020 physically.

Ruto was attending an event at Rurii Stadium in Mathioya, Nyeri County when the incident happened.

According to The Standard, DP Ruto was walking to his car when the man approached him in an attempt to assault him physically. On seeing him coming, Ruto placed his arms on his head and face as a shield.

His bodyguards also saw the man, and they quickly rushed over and pinned him to the ground.

Despite this incident, DP Ruto preceded with his tour to the region making his next stopover at Othaya town where he was meeting with some women.

Everything is okay.

Later on, the office of the Deputy President, however, dismissed the incident claiming it was not an attempt to rough him up. The office further explained that a woman was presenting the DP with tea leaves when the man followed suit.

“The man was presenting tea leaves to the DP but was stopped by the bodyguards who did not know what he was up to,” Mugonyi stated.

He further revealed that the authorities let him go after they understood what was going on.

During the event, Ruto blasted ODM leader Raila Odinga on his planned BBI referendum. He further questioned the former prime minister on his suggestion that the referendum should not exceed ksh 2 billion.

“Leave IEBC alone because even the previous referendum when he was Prime Minister, it cost us about Ksh10 billion with 12 million voters. How do you then expect to spend Ksh2 billion on a referendum with 19 million voters?” Ruto questioned.

Ruto also suggested that a referendum will only divide Kenyans. According to him, the best way would be through dialogue and discussion.
