(KDRTV) – Deputy President William Ruto’s office has denied reports that a man attempted to attack the self-proclaimed hustler as he left a function in Murang’a County on Friday.

A man was seen trying to confront the DP as he left Rurii Stadium in Mathioya. In several photos seen by KDRTV, the man charged at the DP and even attempted to lift his hand in an attempt to attack him.

Ruto was forced to take a step back during the incident before the attack was neutralized by his security. The DP smiled and continued to his vehicle after the man was pinned down.
