Nyeri - The Government will leave no stone unturned until those who murdered Kabete MP, George Muchai are brought to book, Deputy President William Ruto has said.
Speaking at Baricho Ndia, Kirinyaga County, Ruto said all the government machineries have been mobilized to hunt down the criminals.
He said matters of security will not be taken lightly, stating the government is set to increase the number of police officers, equip them adequately and provide decent houses for them.
Ruto said security has improved for Kenyans, investors and tourists although the killing incident slightly reversed gains made recently.
