Suspected thieves steal electronics from Ruth Odinga’s house

Kisumu Deputy Governor Ruth Odinga’s home in Nyahera estate was on Wednesday night raided by gangsters who stole electronics and other household items.

Ms Odinga said she was at her other home in Milimani estate at the time of the incident.

County police commander Titus Yoma said they are investigating the raid.

Ms Odinga said her employee, who lives in a servant quarter discovered the theft Thursday morning and reported to the nearby Nyahera police post.

She said two Administration Police officers who used to guard the home were withdrawn in 2013.

“I was entitled to two guards at the home who were withdrawn four years ago and my efforts to have them replaced have been futile,” she said.

Ms Odinga added that she only has one bodyguard.

“He is only one and when he is off duty I have none despite being a woman leader,” she said.

Ms Odinga said she could not rule out politics in the raid.

“I am appealing for the authorities to enhance my security,” she added.

Nyanza Regional AP commander Joseph Keitany said Ms Odinga is not entitled to guards at her home.
