DP Ruto’s guards regarding Sudi’s escape the day of his arrest

Elite guards attached to the deputy president were questioned on Thursday regarding their role in Kapseret’s legislature escape before his arrest.

The investigating officers wanted to know the role of the guards when they arrived at Sudi’s home to arrest him.

The Kapseret member of parliament dodged arrest for 48 hours with the state planning to charge him with five counts of assaulting a police officer, possessing a firearm illegally, resisting arrest, offensive behaviour, and hate speech over Mama Ngina Kenyatta slur.

The officers include two constables and a chief inspector work with the Presidential escort that protects the President, his deputy, and family members.

They faced a panel of their colleagues at the police headquarters to answer to their role at Sudi’s home last week on Friday.

The investigation will be used against the police officers, among other charges. In case the investigating team arrive at a decision, they might be charged with aiding the escape of a prisoner.

Puzzle of presidential guards at Sudi’s home

Initial reports indicate that the guards escorted the DP to his Sugoi home and left him in the hands of GSU officers guarding his residence.

Later, they left and joined Sudi at his home. Upon the arrival of police officers at Sudi’s home, the guards were still in the compound.

During the time of the invasion, the guards didn’t disclose their identity. This was despite the team fired shots at the entrance to gain entry into the compound.

According to sources from police headquarters, one of the guards had a Ceska pistol and 30 rounds of ammunition, while his colleague had a Jericho pistol loaded with 15 rounds of ammunition.

In the meantime, Sudi has appealed against the decision by a Nakuru court to detain him for another seven days.

Through his lawyers Nathan Tororei and Kipkoech Ng’etich, the legislature filed a notice of motion at the High Court yesterday.
