DP Ruto distances himself from Poisonous food distributed in Kikuyu
Following reports that several people have been hospitalized after consuming relief food linked to Deputy President William Ruto, he has distanced himself from the claims.
The food, branded William Ruto Foundation and Kimani Ichung’wah, also had labels of “Stay Safe
DP Ruto, in a statement through his Communications Secretary David Mugonyi, denied being behind the distribution instead blaming it on “political thuggery.”
The DP further insisted that his foundation only delivers relief packages through churches, mosques and with the participation of local leaders.
“Reports from locals indicate that the strange food donations in question were hurriedly thrown from moving vehicles to unsuspecting public with fake branding, that is not from the Foundation,the William Ruto Foundation has been donating food in Nairobi and its environs for months now without any incident. It is clear those behind the distribution of the contaminated food are engaging in political thuggery for other reasons.” read the statement
The DP sent his sympathies to the affected families and promised to work with local leaders to accord the affected proper healthcare.
“We sympathize with those who have been affected and pray for their speedy and full recovery. We shall follow up with the local leadership to assist them with medical care as is appropriate in consultation with Health officials. It is revolting, despicable, callous and cruel to play with the health and lives of innocent human beings to score political points. Human life and dignity are higher than any political agenda” the statement added
