Deputy President William Ruto
Deputy President William Ruto has spoken about the Saturday attack on his Sugoi home in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu County.
Speaking on Sunday at Ihura stadium in Murang'a, the DP claimed that the attack was a plot to cause disunity among Kenyans and urged Kenyans to remain united.
"I know many people are aware that I had visitors yesterday.... but I want to say that those who think they will frustrate our unity or undermine our progress will not succeed," he said during the installation of Bishop Timothy Gichere as head of Anglican Church's Mount Kenya Central diocese.
"I want to ask all of us not be distracted by the schemes and designs of people who are against our unity and progress as a country," he said.
Inspector-General of Police Joseph Boinnet on Sunday said the intruder attacked a police officer manning the gate, gaining entry, then accessing firearms in the armoury box.
The elite Recce Squad managed to kill the attacker on Sunday morning after an 18-hour siege which left one police officer dead and another injured.
"The gunman was using different guns to confuse security forces that they were many," Rift Valley Regional Coordinator Wanyama Musiambo said.
"The intruder breached the outer gate, and not the inner gate, which is under tight security, that leads to the residence," he said, adding that investigations into the identity and motive of the intruder are ongoing.
