Four arrested for stealing eggs at DP Ruto's Sugoi home

Police officers in Eldoret have arrested four suspects after Ksh. 2500 worth of eggs went missing at Deputy President William Ruto’s Sugoi home.

The four were arrested with empty crates believed to have been pinched from the DP’s home in unclear circumstances.

Zachariah Bittok, the Eldoret West police boss told scribes that investigations into the matter had been opened after a farm manager at the DP’s home reported the incident.

Officers say that they are curious in un-earthing how eggs disappeared at the farm which is considered ‘very secure’.

“Our initial investigation revealed that four workers who reside inside the homestead were involved in the theft but they all denied,” Bittok told a local daily.

After an intense police search empty crates were recovered from the suspects leading to their arrest.

According to a police report, some of the suspects who live in the DP’s compound had up to three crates from the 10 that had gone missing.

The second-in-command who was attending a meeting in Rift Valley over the weekend was not at home during the incident.

The chicken farm project which supplies eggs in the North Rift and Nairobi is run by the DP, his close family and supervised by his wife Rachel.

The incident comes two years after one Ibrahim Mohamud- an intruder- broke into DP Ruto’s home in 2017.

The solo intruder who was later shot dead had broken into the home a measly 30 minutes after the DP left for a campaign rally in Narok.
