Deputy President has been cleared to hold his two meetings scheduled Thursday October 15th and which will be taking place in Nyamira County.
Ruto’s team made an application to police in compliance with National Security Advisory Committee NSAC directives.
“Take note that the permission for fundraising for Nyamria South Sub-county Boda Boda Sacco scheduled for Thursday 15th October 2020 at 10:00 a.m. at Sironga Sports Ground to be presided over by the Deputy President His Excellency William Ruto has been granted,” read part of the letter from Sasura giving the meetings a clean bill of health.
Homenews.co.ke stumbled on the two letters of approval written by Police Commander Mohammed Sasura of Keroka and OCS Elam Esendi.
Last week, there was a botched meeting in the same area when police disrupted crowds that had gathered in readiness to receive the DP.
He was later advised to comply with directives by NSAC as well as Public Order Act Chapter 56 so that chaos could be checked early incase of any.
These measures were first triggered when DP Ruto’s supporters clashed in Murang’a County at Kenol area two weeks ago leading to two deaths.
The DP was immediately asked to make sure that his meetings are well planned in advance so that to have law and order and that incase of any bad thing happening without having notified authorities, he will be held personally responsible.
The Thursday meeting will be a fundraiser at Nyamasache Church according to OCS Elam Esendi.
“This office received your above letter notifying your intention to hold a Sadaka collection in respect of Nyamasebe District. This is to notify you that your request has been granted and you will cooperate with the police to ensure that security is maintained throughout the function,” read the letter from OCS Esendi.
With this development, it is now obvious that Ruto, just like any other politician, must apply for meeting approval before holding any.
