Deputy President William Ruto says he has no problem with the withdrawal of the General Service Unit (GSU) at his Karen residence in Nairobi and Sugoi home in Eldoret.
According to Ruto if those incharge of the country’s security have found other jobs for the GSU officers then it is okay with him.
Ruto said he will work with any other officers who will be brought to his Nairobi or Sugoi residences since they human beings just like him.
“If there are other new assignments for the GSU officers let them go to work, even the AP officers can also be taken to where there are cattle rustling so that Kenyans remain safe, I can even work with G4S security,” said Ruto.
The DP was addressing a congregation at the St. Augustine Catholic church in Bahati, Nakuru county on Sunday.
He said, the recent actions should not trigger a national debate but instead urged Kenyans to join his efforts in ensuring the country moves forward economically.
Ruto said as long as Kenyans in every part of the country are secured and live in peace, he is contented.
Recently, GSU officers attached to both the DP’s Karen home in Nairobi and the Sugoi residence in Eldoret were withdrawn with the Inspector General of police Hillary Mutyambai replacing them with Administration Police (AP) saying it was a normal reassignment of duties.

“Let’s all unite and focus on economically face-lifting our nation and that is exactly what we are currently doing,” Said the Deputy President.
Ruto told off his critics over the bottom up economic approach adding that he has no time for them but for Kenyans.
“I am a very busy person who is always at the grassroot level deliberating with Kenyans on how we can constitute an all inclusive government that will economically empower Kenyans,” Said the DP.
Meanwhile Ruto has reiterated that he will not quit his position as the Deputy president.
“It will be a big shame for me to run away from the roles Kenyans gave me back in 2017, I will continue serving them,” Said Ruto.
The DP was accompanied by politicians Susan Kihika Kihika (Nakuru Senator) Kimani Ngunjiri (Bahati MP), Nominated Senator Millicent Omanga among others.
