Deputy President William Ruto was forced to intervene on Tuesday after a man chained himself to the door of his Harambee extension office for not working.
Ruto spokesman Emmanuel Talam said the issue had been addressed.
“The DP solved the problem and asked his office to address the case of the young man,” Talam said.
Lawrence Oprong had previously been detained by police officers who took him to the main police station.
He had tied his waist at the front door, claiming that he would only give leave if Ruto would address his issues.
Oprong, who claims to be the son of former Busia North MP Fredrick Oduya Oprong, said he was offered a job four years ago.
But he noted that the promise was not fulfilled.
