Wednesday June 10, 2020 – The investigation regarding Deputy President William Ruto’s fake donations in Kikuyu, Kiambu County, may have hit a snag, judging from developments and reactions by police bosses and administrators in the office of area Governor, James Nyoro.
Speaking yesterday, Kiambu County Commissioner, Wilson Wanyanga, detailed that no arrests had been made in the case where residents were hospitalised after consuming the foods allegedly donated by Ruto.
Wanyanga explained that the matter had been overtaken by events.
Kikuyu Divisional Criminal Investigations Officer, Jeremiah Kinga Ikao, declined to comment on the issue adding that it was being handled by the Directorate of Criminal Investigation headquarters along Kiambu Road, Nairobi.
Nyoro had urged the police to hasten investigations while disclosing that 12 residents were rushed to hospital over the matter.
The Governor also revealed that lab test results would be made available.
However, his administration has since gone silent with Health CEC, Joseph Murega, declining to comment on the matter.
Kiambu County Director of Public Health, Hellen Kimani, also played cagey with details of the case.
“I cannot comment on the matter,” she responded.
The fake donations were made a few days after DP Ruto toured the constituency and issued food donations.
