Deputy President William Ruto has apologised to the family of the late Mahoo ward representative, Ronald Sagurani.

“I am apologizing to you the family for what transpired earlier. I want to ask for forgiveness on behalf of the Government as a government leader, for the unnecessary disruption. When Government does things that annoy the public, I have a duty to take responsibility,” said the DP who noted that the events were “shameful”.

Also castigating the government was Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa who stated that the incident was meant to frustrate the DP.

“The government has to apply the rules across the board and not select which burials to apply the government directives,” said Jumwa.

Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro on his part said the government that is headed by President Uhuru Kenyatta was bitter about the BBI flop in the Court of Appeal, hence the frustrations aimed at Ruto.

“Police under instructions from above have disrupted and brought down tents at the burial service of Mahoo Ward MCA, the Late Hon Ronald Sagurani just because the DP William Ruto was to attend. Machungu ya Kiambaa na BBI iko mingi,” said Nyoro via social media.

Sagurani passed on on Tuesday last week while receiving treatment at the at Pandya Hospital in Mombasa.
