DP Ruto writes to IG over ‘security breach’ at Harambee Annex office
Deputy President William Ruto has written to the Inspector General of Police citing a breach of security at his Harambee Annex office.
In the letter seen by Citizen Digital, the DP says former CS Rashid Echesa and two strangers gained access to a waiting room on the second floor which raises grave concern.
“This incident is a very serious breach of the security of the Deputy President and requires a thorough forensic investigation,” the letter signed by the DP’s Chief of Staff Amb. Ken Osinde reads.
Dr. Ruto further wants Police IG Hillary Mutyambai to establish which security officers facilitated the entry of Echesa and his counterparts into his office.
In addition, Dr. Ruto is seeking investigations into the identity, immigration status and mission of the two foreigners who were at Harambee Annex with Echesa.
According to him, an official statement is required to explain their presence in the country and particularly at his office on February 13.
“Foreign Affairs should facilitate information on these foreigners and the profile of the companies they purport to represent,” the DP’s letter reads.
He is demanding that the foreigners be blocked from leaving the country until investigations are complete.
In the letter, the DP is questioning the identities of Mr. Mustafa Mamdough Amer Lofty and Kozlowski Stanley Bruno and whether they have any criminal records.
He also lists Eco advance Technology LLC as the company that should be investigated to determine its representatives in Kenya and the nature of business.
The letter from DP Ruto comes two days after he disputed Echesa’s claims that a meeting had been scheduled to take place at Harambee Annex.
Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) have since quizzed staff at the DP’s office as part of probe into the fake Ksh.39 billion military arms deal.
