“Jumatatu hiyo wakati nilifika kwa ofisi, nikaita yule anayesimamia ulinzi katika ofisi ya majengo ya naibu wa rais Bw. Joseph Rop ambaye ni Commissioner wa Police, na nikamuita yule ambaye anasimamia escort katika hiyo ofisi Bw. William Yampoi…wote wawili walikuja kwa ofisi yangu. Nilitaka kujua ni jambo gani ilitendeka Alhamisi iliyopita,” he said.
“Hawa wawili walikuja wakaniambia ilitokea hivi, mpaka wakaniletea CCTV. Mimi nikaita Kenei na wenzake wawili ambaye wanafanya kazi pamoja. Wakasimama mbele yangu pale ofisini,” DP Ruto added.
The Deputy President also said that he questioned the trio to shade more light on what happened at the Annex office on the day that former sports CS Rashid Echesa and two foreign officers were seen there.
“Kenei akaniambia ya kwamba ni kweli, yeye anajuana na Bw. Echesa…alikuwa amepigiwa simu na kuambiwa Echesa na wenzake waliokuja kwa ofisi yangu walikuwa na appointment…ndio akawaruhusu waje katika waiting room,” the DP said.

“Nilitaka kujua progress ya vile uchunguzi inaendelea kwa sababu yale yalikuwa yamefanyika katika ofisi yangu kwamba eti kuna kandarasi fake ambaye ililetwa ikasign-iwa kwenye ofisi yangu…na ikaniweka matope nyingi…nilikuwa ninataka kujua ukweli wa hayo maneno ni gani,” the DP said.
