Deputy President William Ruto’s office and the police are locked in a blame game over the chaos on Wednesday that rocked the DP’s Kondole visit and left several vehicles damaged. 

The visit was supposed to be a much-vaunted test of amity and the ability of politicians to campaign peacefully on their rivals’ turf. 

Police said Ruto and his team ignored intelligence reports of tension within Kisumu’s Kondele estate after some groups missed out on promised campaign handouts, said to total Sh1 million.

“This intelligence was promptly shared by the police with the Deputy President’s team with recommendations to skip the affected area during the tour,” police spokesman Bruno Shioso said in a statement.

But Ruto’s office dismissed the police narrative as ukora tupu [dishonest].

The DP’s communications director Emmanuel Tallam said Ruto’s security had been down-scaled in the Nyanza visit.

In a communiqué, the DP’s office accused the police of engaging in political mischief. They denied the dishing out of handouts.
