Deputy President's Home Attacked By Gunmen

Gunmen attacked Kenyan Deputy President William Ruto’s residence on Saturday while he and his family were out, local television stations reported, 10 days before presidential and legislative elections. Ruto is the running mate for President Uhuru Kenyatta, who is seeking a second and final term in office.

A Reuters reporter at the scene in the western town of Eldoret said that as of 7 p.m. the area leading to Ruto’s compound was still cordoned off to the public and journalists. He said no gunshots had been heard for at least an hour. Police and officials from Ruto’s office were not available for immediate comment.

The incident comes some 10 days before Kenya’s presidential, legislative and regional county representative elections on Aug. 8.
