Deputy President William Ruto denies distributing poisonous relief food in Kikuyu

Deputy President Dr William Ruto

Deputy President William Ruto has come out to distance himself from the distribution of relief food branded his foundation that has affected residents of Kikuyu Constituency, Kiambu County.

This comes amid reports that several residents of Kikuyu had developed stomach complications with others being hospitalised after consuming the food items packed in bags labelled William Ruto Foundation and Kimani Ichung’wah.

DP Ruto, in a statement through his Communications Secretary David Mugonyi, denied being behind the distribution instead blaming it on “political thuggery.”

The DP further stated that his foundation only delivers relief packages through churches, mosques and with the participation of local leaders.
