Deputy President, William
Ruto, on Saturday got the shock of
his life after residents boycotted
his meeting in West Pokot County
in protest over the ongoing
military operation in Kapedo.
Ruto, who arrived in a chopper at
Bendera Estate in Kapenguria was
welcomed by Senator John
Lonyangapuo, the only Pokot
leader present.
The Pokot leaders even held a
protest at Kapenguria before
Ruto‘s arrival condemning the
presence of Kenya Defence Forces
(KDF) in Kapedo.
The protesters waved placards
protesting the Government’s
move to deploy the military to
flush out criminals in the conflict-
prone pastoral Counties.
Some of the placards read, “We
hate you Ruto and your Jubilee
Government. Why is the
Government terrorizing and
killing innocent people? We
want security operation
stopped”.
But defiant Ruto who arrived at
the town after the protest said
his Government will not
withdraw KDF from Kapedo until
the culprits who killed 21 police
officers are arrested and
punished.
“Those who killed the officers and
took away guns have no place in
Kenya and there is no way we
will keep quiet when innocent
lives are lost to criminals,” Ruto
said.
