Ruto-linked office raid: Anti-Terror police nab contents of private servers


Police officers nabbed illegal IEBC servers in an office linked to Deputy President William Ruto located at Transnational Plaza, Nairobi.


Officers attached to the Anti-Terror Police Unit (ATPU) raided the office, nabbing the severs that are alleged to be privately sneaked into the office with an intention to manipulate the August 9 Election.

The ATPU officers forcefully made their way into the ninth-floor office yesterday, leaving damage in their wake.

Addressing the press, Nairobi Regional Commissioner James Mugera noted that the raid was conducted following reports that an election-related server was being hosted in the office.

“Two private servers were being moved…” We are here to verify, “Mugera stated.

The United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party officials indicated that they would be issuing a statement on the developing matter any time soon.

This comes amidst a fallout between the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) and the DCI following the arrest of three Venezuelan nationals who were nabbed at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) in possession of electoral materials destined for a private office in Nairobi.

The move prompted IEBC to go on a rampage, faulting the DCI for arresting its officials and in the process impeding its progress in electoral readiness just 15 days to the August 9 General Elections.

However, DCI boss George Kinoti maintained that the three individuals, who were nabbed with the IEBC materials privately smuggled into the country, were not employees of the electoral commission and had flown into the country for a private engagement.

Meanwhile, IEBC promised to deliver credible results in the upcoming General Election.
