Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju has asked Deputy President William Ruto to use his connections in Rome, to help Kenya recover the 7B he admitted to having been lost in the scandalous Arror and Kimwarer dam projects.
In a hard-hitting statement from the Jubilee Party Headquarters on Monday, Tuju tore into the DP’s kind of politics as well as most recent attacks on the Kenyatta family by politicians in UDA.
”There’s the small matter of Arror/Kimwarer saga. The DP told Kenyans that only Ksh.7 billion had disappeared, his own daughter was the deputy ambassador in Rome at that time. To our knowledge, this money has never been returned by the Italians,” the Statement from Jubilee Secretary General reads in part.
“Since he has got some private business networks in Italy that he had gone to meet, would he be so mind to this nation of poor people, nation of hustlers according to him, as to use his vast business networks to recover this money. It is a lot of money even though he referred to the figure as Ksh.7 billion only. Even with the DP’s chicken farm income of Ksh.1.5 million net a day, it will take some 13 years before that chicken farm produces Ksh.7 billion.”
Tuju noted William Ruto five years ago in 2015 revealed he was worth Ksh.100 million, only for it to now emerge, following CS Matiang’i’s revelations, that he could actually be worth a few billions.
“By his own accounts, the deputy president is on video record when he told Kenyans that he was worth Ksh.100 million some time in 2015. In the intervening 7 years, he has worked very hard in his businesses and now therefore he has assets like choppers, hotels, and land worth billions of shillings,” he said.
“We would like to congratulate Dr. Ruto for being able to make such amazing strides in business even as he was studying for his PhD concurrently with running a multi-billion shilling empire and carrying the heavy burden of working as number two in command and being involved in presidential campaigns on his Sundays, still sparing time to do harambees from his hard-earned sweat money. From our records, he has been more generous than Safaricom and other bluechip companies.”
