Deputy President William Ruto was in Busia county to launch the Lower Nzoia Irrigation project in Budalangi.  The DP’s convoy ran over a boy in Busia County that Friday.

Sidney Mambala Felix, a seven-year-old boy was rushed to Port Victoria Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

DP Ruto took to Twitter to condole with the boy’s family, “Saddened by the news of the passing on of Sidney Mambala Felix, a young and bubbly boy. Followed closely the situation after I was informed of the unfortunate incident and, now, deeply condole with the family of Mzee Mambala, his peers and friends for the grave loss of a loved one.”
