Nairobi - The Deputy President, William Ruto’s pilot has been captured on camera assaulting a female policewoman.
The pilot, allegedly of British descent, is seen disembarking from a helicopter that took the Deputy President to Nyandarua over the weekend, then grabbing the police woman’s swagger stick before pushing and slapping her.
A crowd of onlookers shriek, ordering him to stop but doing nothing to stop him.
According to sources, the policewoman reported the case to police but nothing was done.
