DP William Ruto yesterday hit back at Raila Odinga over the dams’ scandal insisting he knows how much has been spent on them because they fall under the Jubilee manifesto.
Ruto accused the former Prime Minister of politicising the war on corruption saying he is in fact the “ugly face of impunity, [and] a known political fraud whose word means nothing.” (watch video below).
He said Raila is a notorious propagandist and incorrigible liar who can’t even remember the last lie he told.
The DP said the war on corruption will only be won if it's fought using the correct tools.
He said Raila has neither the legitimacy nor integrity to lecture anyone on matters corruption or integrity.
The DCI is investigating the alleged loss of Sh21 billion in the construction of the Arror and Kimwarer dams in Elgeyo Marakwet county.
Ruto is on record as saying no funds were lost other than Sh7 billion paid in advance to the contractor.
“So, the question that I’m being asked is like a hyena asking a herdsman ‘what is your interest in your herd and why do you know the number of the livestock that you are keeping?” Ruto said.
He spoke on Thursday when closing the 6th Devolution Conference in Kirinyaga county.
