DP Ruto’s handlers return old man’s prized possession after he threatened to sue [Video]

The issue was highlighted in the media after the DP was crowned a Tugen elder

93 year old Kimitei Kiplagat shot to the limelight after he threatened to sue the DP and demanded his traditional regalia which was used during the coronation of DP William Ruto as a Tugen elder in Eldama Ravine recently.

It emerged that the regalia was stashed into one of the DP’s vehicles by his handlers against the expectations of Jonah Taalam who had offered the regalia to be used at the high profile event.

“The regalia belongs to Kimitei, what is going on and what you hear some saying the old man is a liar is malice, I call upon people spreading such rumours to stop ad respect the old man,” Taalam said.

"After scrutinizing you for a long time, we have chosen you from the long list of our leaders to take over as President in 2022," he elders declared.
