A pilot caught on camera assaulting a female police officer in Nyandarua over the weekend has today surrendered to police in Nairobi and was later flown to Nyandarua where he committed the crime to record a statement over the incident.
Alistair Llwelyn’s case took another turn after it has emerged that he was after all a Kenyan who grew up in Timau, Meru County. Kenyans baying for his blood on social media through the twitter hashtag #DeportRutosPilot called for his deportation saying he was British
The office of the Deputy President has also distanced itself from the pilot saying he was not among the DP’s staff.
An amateur video emerged showing the pilot grab the officer’s swagger stick, insult then push her while yelling ‘Do your f****ing job’.
He was seemingly angered by huge crowd milling around his chopper and the officer’s reluctance to control them.
Llewelyn had flown DP William Ruto to Ndunyu Njeru for a church service.
His employers Kwae Island Development, which had subcontracted his services from Saker Resource Management has since terminated his services.
The DP’s office clarified that the pilot was not one of his staff members.
Communication secretary David Mugonyi noted that Ruto respects the hardworking police officers who spend hours securing the country and regrets the “unacceptable, regrettable” incident.
