Ruto’s Security Upgraded – Red Berets Take Over

The elite GSU squad has been deployed to Deputy President William Ruto’s home in Sugoi, Uasin Gishu County, after he was declared President-elect by the electoral agency.

Before today, the residence was guarded by officers from the Critical Installation Police Unit (CIPU) of the Administration Police. The AP officers have been withdrawn and replaced by more than a dozen red berets.

After GSU officers took charge of the residence, they started scanning every vehicle entering and exiting the home. Locals who had thronged the site to celebrate Dr Ruto’s win spent the night outside the gate.

Ms Linah Kiyeng, from Kipkaren Salient in Nandi County, was among those who spent the night celebrating after the Independent Electoral and Boundaries announced Dr Ruto as the winner of the presidential election.

“As soon as his win was announced, we came here and spent the night celebrating. We are waiting for the DP to come home so that we can celebrate together. In the meantime, we will continue keeping vigil here even for a week,” she said
