Unidentified gunmen have attacked the rural home of Kenya’s Deputy President William Ruto’s in western Uasin Gishu county, BBC reports.
Local reports said assailants overpowered a police officer at the gate and entered the compound.
Mr Ruto was not at home at the time, and the incident comes 10 days before Kenya holds presidential, legislative and regional elections.
The deputy president had left hours earlier for a campaign rally in the town of Kitale, where he joined President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Mr Kenyatta is seeking re-election next month.
