Kenyan authorities have sent more security officers to flush out an unknown number of attackers still trapped inside Deputy President William Ruto's rural home on Saturday.

Rift Valley regional coordinator Wanyama Musiambo who is at the home declined to comment on the operation.

Recce Squad have now taken over the situation.

Uasin Gishu governor Jackson Mandago and MPs Oscar Sudi and Alfred Keter addressed villagers and asked them to remain calm and keep away from the area.

A police officer guarding the residence was injured in the attack, which comes ten days before a fiercely fought general election.

Red Sox could scratch David Price due to arm discomfort
The 31-year-old left-hander signed a seven-year, $217 million contract with the Sox prior to the 2016 season. That is, of course, subject to change if more bad news about his health emerges down the line.

TUKO.co.ke can now confirm that heavy exchange of fire is being experienced at the home as the police force their way into the house where the gangsters are hiding.

The motive of the attack was unclear.

The news outlet added that police had cordoned off the building.

None of the DP's family member was at the residence during the attack. "Specialist officers have been deployed to deal with the intruder".

Mr Ruto was not at home at the time.
