Nominated MP David Ole Sankok has listed what he claims is the source of Deputy President William Ruto’s massive wealth.
This follows repeated questions from several quarters among the ODM leader Raila Odinga over how the DP makes his money that he generously dishes out in his numerous visits across the country.
“Which individual can have such money? You are bringing crowds and crowds of people each and every day slaughtering chicken and paying for their transport and giving them petty cash, what is the source of such cash?” wondered Raila in a recent interview as quoted by a local publication.
But in a Facebook post on Saturday, Sankok said Ruto has invested in different sectors among them avocado farming, hotel business, insurance, salary as the DP and shares in the media.
“He export avocado’s fetching him billions. He gets millions from his hotels. He gets millions from his insurance firm. He gets millions as the salary of DP. He gets millions from his shares of media. His wife sells 3 million eggs daily. His farming business and estates give him millions,” he posted.
The MP further noted that he is not impressed with the remarks of Raila that Ruto should step aside to pave way for investigation over his involvement in graft.
The lawmaker said that Ruto, who is considered as one of the frontrunners in the 2022 presidential race, deserves to be in leadership.
“I have a right of reply to him who thinks others do not equally deserve to be leaders in our country, I listened to Raila Odinga castigating our Deputy President Dr William Somoei Ruto. I listened to him carefully mentioning the Deputy President on national television in one sentence with BBI as if Dr. Ruto were twins with BBI. Was BBI about Ruto or Kenyans?’ read part of his post.
