Deputy President William Ruto  attended the burial of sergeant Kipyegon Kenei who was murdered in cold blood at his home in Imara Daima.

Speaking during the burial service at his Chemasis village, Nakuru, Ruto said it was unfortunate instead of DCI looking for the killers, they have shifted the focus to him.

Ruto told mourners, "I know there is a bigger scheme to destroy my office and ensure I do not go anywhere. The schemers are trying to threaten, undermine and demean my office in a bid to stop me, they may have the system but I have God."

He said after Echesa and his accomplice were arrested, he held a meeting with Kenei and three other officers and they briefed him of what had transpired on that day.

Ruto said Kenei allowed Echesa and his team at the office because he received a call indicating that they had an appointment.

On Thursday, Ruto came to the office and called for another meeting to be briefed on the progress of the case only for them to realise Kenei had not been seen.

"I reached out to people who knew him and asked them to find his family," he said.
