UDA politicians want list of properties owned by all VVIPs



UDA politicians demanding list of properties owned by all VVIPs

Politicians allied to the Deputy President Dr. William Ruto now want Interio CS Fred Matiang’i to provide a list of properties owned by other VVIPs after he exposed details of properties owned by Ruto and the number of security details attached to them.

He further exposed the details of Ruto’s security detail which he said is divided in three layers with the inner the layer consisting of 74 officers drawn from the presidential escort team, 5 highly trained GSU officers and six DCI who provide personal protection to the president’s principal assistant.

Matiang’i said the second layer has 121 officers drawn from the Administration Police and Prisons Service who are guarding Ruto’s many homes while the outer layer provides security to DP’s businesses, economic life and places he spends most of his time.

The CS who was in a politically charged session went ahead to reveal that 6 officers are guarding Ruto’s Kitengela Gas, ADC Laikipia Ranch 6, Dolphin hotel 6, Matter farm Eldoret 6, Weston hotel 6, Murumbi land 6,  Elgon View private residence 4, poultry Farm Eldoret 4, private Residence Eldoret 4 and Wilson Airport private hanger 4.

Ruto had earlier stated that summoning Matiang’i over the downgrading of security detail guarding his official Karen was a waste of time as he called on parliament to address pressing issues like delicate security in northern Kenya where bandits are having a field day.

“Parliamentary time should not be wasted on non-issues. The AP is a professional security service and those who think it’s a downgrade are wrong. Parliament should instead focus on deployment to serious security situations in areas where bandits are causing mayhem and destruction,” DP said in a tweet.

But the DP ‘s office has dismissed Matiang’i list of some of the properties listed as false and reckless. Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei challenged the CS to provide a list of properties owned by all the VVIP’s and the number of police officers attached to them including the dead.

Matiang’i was expected to explain to Kenyans why the State withdrew Ruto’s security but Matiang’i dodged the questions and Ruto’s for what looks like a political expediency move.


The Law Society of Kenya President Nelson Havi also described Matiang’i and Interior CS Karanja Kibicho as grandmasters of alternative facts and lies. He also accused Matiang’i of hoodwinking the parliament after the CS evaded the fact that GSU officers at the offices and residences of Ruto were replaced with AP officers.
