There was a major safety concern involving Deputy President William Ruto during his rally at the Burma market in Nairobi.
The General Service Unit's elite squad Recce was forced to whisk Ruto away from a rowdy crowd. This is after a section of the youth interrupted Ruto while he was addressing the gathering.
Efforts by MPs Mohamed Ali to calm the protesting youth failed as the situation escalated posing a great danger to the DP.
Ruto's convoy was stuck in the middle of the multitude which had converged to listen to his address.
On sensing danger, the Recce squad gathered around the DP's car after which he alighted from the rooftop and was quickly whisked away to a separate car.
The security aids were forced to shove away the crowd to create a path for Ruto and guarded him as he walked through the crowd.
During his address, Ruto assured the residents that the Jubilee government was working on creating jobs and improving the living standards in the city.
“We are smarter than them. All they talk about are hustlers and wheelbarrows. They now understand that Kenyans are awake and are tired of cheap politics.
"Kenyans want to know how they will benefit and how their lives will be improved. The Jubilee government was functioning well until Raila entered the fray with the BBI…all our plans have since been shelved," he blamed Odinga.
He also urged the crowd not to be concerned about Odinga's 2022 plans, claiming that the former Prime Minister was enjoying the support of the deep state.
