Ruto responds to claims he doesn't feed his security

He turned on the Ministry of Interior, saying that it had not been paying the officers their allowances as required by law. We have provided them with food. The only complaint I am aware of is delays to pay their allowances."The officers are under the office of the Inspector General of Police. Their welfare is catered for by that office. Even the GSU were under the IG," Mugonyi stated.

A letter by Internal Security Secretary, Wilson Njenga, and dated Thursday, November 11, asked Ruto's handlers to ensure the bodyguards were either given food or allocated food allowances to enable them to carry out their duties. 

"This is to bring to your attention that the above officers have not been consistently provided with food rations or meal allowances to enable them to discharge their mandate effectively and efficiently.

"This is in contrast to their counterparts from GSU whom they replaced and who used to get food rations The purpose of this letter, therefore, is to request that you reinstate the food rations for the officers currently deployed in the two residences for optimal service delivery," the letter read in part.
