Police on Sunday raided Deputy President William Ruto’s alleged former private office on the 9th floor of Transnational House in Nairobi CBD over suspicious activities.
Officers said they intercepted the movement of two servers to an undisclosed location, according to Citizen TV.
Police reports indicate that a security officer attached to the deputy president’s office was found at the scene and upon interrogation, he said he was asked to supervise the transfer of sensitive materials as the office was undergoing renovations.
A team comprising officers from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) cybercrime and scenes of crime units was dispatched to conduct forensic investigations on the two servers.
“We got a tip-off and we came to investigate because we found the information about moving servers quite sensitive,” Nairobi Deputy Regional Police Commander James Mugera told the press.
The servers reportedly belong to Lampstar Technologies and Intellect Group, which provide core banking systems to Saccos and mobile banking
“It is not a crime to move servers just that we have to do our investigations first,” Mugera added.
The area was cordoned off as a crime scene as investigations continue.
Ruto had a private office at Transnational House before he assumed office in 2013.
