Details emerging indicate that DP Ruto’s office has not been serving food to the newly assigned bodyguards from the Administration Police Unit.
This has forced the Minister of Interior to intervine and issue a statement on the same.
According to reports by a local daily, the ministry has asked Ruto’s office to make sure that the bodyguards are given food or its equivalent allowance.
“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.
The report indicates that the officers affected by this are those assigned to Deputy President William Ruto’s Karen residence and one of his private home.
