Deputy President William Ruto private residence engulfed with fear when a drone roamed and hovering around his compound for minutes before it disappeared.

This forced Rachael Ruto to call the police and inform them of the developments.

Police hurried to the home instantly and realized the drone had flown back to the DP’s neighbour who is a British national and resides there.

The foreigner recognised as Heids Jeremy was traced and questioned before he surrendered the drone.

Nairobi police boss Augustine Nthumbi eased concerns the drone was a danger to the DP and his family.

The DP was not at his home. The event occurred on Monday evening at about 3 pm.

“It strayed into the compound in Hardy. She called the police and responded very fast and confiscated the drone. Investigations are ongoing,” said Nthumbi.

Teams from Anti-Terror Police (ATPU), Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) and National Intelligence Service (NIS) arrived at the home and seized the gadget.

They are analyzing the memory cards recovered from the drone to see if it has any useful information to their probe.

Jeremy was grilled by detectives on Tuesday Morning. The team asked him to explain the mission of the drone and he explained it had been brought there by visitors who had come to his house.

“He says the gadget was brought to his house by visitors who wanted to take pictures of his new home there as a present to him. Nothing more so far,” said Nthumbi.

Jeremy said he has been staying there for more than three years and knows the DP as his neighbour and nothing has happened.

However, the detectives realized the owners had registered the device but did not know it is wrong to fly it on private premises.

The decision by police to go public on the incident was informed by concerns from some quarters who felt it was not being given the needed attention.

“There is no cause for panic at all. All is well,” Nthumbi said at a press briefing on Tuesday.
