Kenya police end siege at home of deputy president
    2017-July-31  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

ELITE Kenyan security forces yesterday killed a man at the home of Deputy President William Ruto, ending a 20-hour siege that began with an attack in which a policeman was injured, police said.

Ruto and his family were not at the vast property in the northwest of the country during Saturday’s attack, which came less than two weeks before the country votes in high-stakes elections.

Kenya’s police chief Joseph Boinnet said that the assailant had just been shot and killed and “the situation is under control.”

Further details and the motive for the attack remained unclear.

Boinnet said one assailant armed with a machete attacked and badly injured a police officer who was part of Ruto’s security team, seized his gun and then entered the compound.

Police reinforcements arrived and the attacker fled into a building under construction near the entrance gate.

Ruto had left the house shortly before the attack to attend rallies alongside President Uhuru Kenyatta, his running mate who faces a tight re-election contest Aug. 8 against longtime opposition leader Raila Odinga.
