List Of Flats Owned By DP Ruto And Family Leased To National Police Service

The directive by President Uhuru Kenyatta cancelling leases of police houses will save the Government an estimated kes3billion annually. Junior police officers and their prison counterparts will now receive house allowances under the new police reforms announced by the President. In the past, only officers in the rank of inspector and above pocketed house allowances. This new directive is however not welcomed by landlords who made a killing in the leases. Deputy President William Ruto was among the beneficiaries of this arrangement until now. We take a look at the flats the DP leased to the National Police Service (NPS) and how much he made per month.

O’sere Flats-Legend Management

According to an article appearing on the Daily Nation titled ‘Ruto to lose millions of shillings in rent as new police housing plan comes into force’, the DP- through Lgend Management LTD-has rented out 72 units at Osere Flats in Ongata Rongai for a sum of kes16million annually. The lease runs from December 12,2017 to December 7,2020.
