Uproar over Ruto’s mahindi choma ‘bodyguard’
Twitter ‘detectives’ have revealed photos that suggest that Deputy President William Ruto’s bodyguard posed as a mahindi choma seller during a recent tour of Kiambu county.
The DP shared a photo showing him enjoying some roadside roasted maize but the seller appeared to have a bulging pocket trouser, which tweeps concluded was a walkie talkie.
They went on to share a photo of Ruto surrounded by his security team and they circled one man whom they said posed as the mahindi choma guy.
A juxtapose of the two photos went viral even as K24 TV went on a hunt for the seller whom they said was different from Ruto’s bodyguard.

So what is the explanation for the DP’s change of colour of his tie?

It was not the same day. Simple.

Not a show, the DP line up for the day is known by the secret service, probably the guy was there 4 days prior, to make sure the maize was okey.

Actually the walkie talkie is for communicating with suppliers and customers. For the picture of him near ruto, he was basically there to market his business. Its not was it seems. Its not.
