Kenyans are astonished after police in Eldoret arrested four suspects found with trays of eggs suspected to have been stolen from the farm of the Deputy President William Ruto in Sugoi, Uasin Gishu.
The farm manager on Monday reported that 10 crates of eggs worth Sh2,500 went missing in an unclear circumstance.
“Our initial investigation revealed that four workers who reside inside the homestead were involved in the theft but they all denied,” said Eldoret West police boss Zachariah Bittok.
He said this prompted police to do a search and the trays of eggs were recovered.
The DP who attended meeting in the Rift Valley over the weekend was not at home when the incident happened.
Kenyans on social media were shocked by the news.
10 crates only?
I have used the word ONLY intentionally because during Kimwarer and Arror debate he (Ruto) said Ksh. 7b ‘only’.

The DP being a truly man of God for he repeatedly confesses so, he should be gracious, benevolent, magnanimous & forgiving to ask the DCI to withdraw the charges&if not asking too much, pray for the petty thieves and to crown it all, give them something small to start a business!

Theft of 10 crate’s of eggs isn’t a thing to focus! What’s fascinating is the fact that police are probing such an insignificant case. Wastage of police resources! The editor of this story is keen!

This reminds me of the parable of the unforgiving servant in Matthew 18
