DP Ruto: Stop the drama and the smear campaigns, tell us who killed Sgt. Kenei

Deputy President William Ruto has asked the relevant authorities to expedite investigation into the late Kipyegon Kenei’s death, and spare Kenyans the unnecessary drama.

Taking to Twitter, DP Ruto said the family of the late, ODP, and kenyans wanted the truth into the heinous crime and not the “drama” and convenient “half-truths.

In the same update, Ruto said the smear campaigns and sponsored headlines amounted to criminal cover-up.

On Thursday, Ruto had through his Chief of Staff Ken Osinde described the former Sports Cabinet secretary Rashid Echesa and his accomplices as “crooks and cartels” who had breached his security.

“We appreciate efforts by the Director of Criminal Investigations to investigate the fraudulent access to the office of the Deputy President by crooks and cartels as well as investigations into the murder of Sergeant Kipyegon Kenei.

“The entry into the office of the Deputy President that was aided by some security officers was a breach of security,” reads the statement.

The latest comes just a day after the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) gave an update on the investigations into the cold-blooded matter.

CCTV footage released on Thursday by DCI George Kinoti suggests that Kenei was part of the scam that saw Echesa use the Office of the Deputy President and the signature of Defence Cabinet Secretary Amb. Monica

Juma to allegedly cut a fraudulent multi-billion shilling deal.

Echesa and his co-accused; Daniel Otieno, Clifford Okoth, Kennedy Oyoo and Crispin Oduor, have since been charged over the Ksh.39 billion scam.

The four were accused of, among other things, attempting to obtain a total of Ksh.39,544,200,000 from a foreigner by falsely pretending that they would award him a tender by the State Department to supply military equipment.

The suspects pleaded not guilty to all counts – obtaining money by false pretences, conspiracy to commit a felony, uttering a false document. They are out on bail.
