DON'T CAPITALISE ON PEOPLES' POVERTY TO ASSEND TO POWER; RUTO CHIDES RAILA.

Deputy President William Ruto yesterday Sunday dismissed  of Opposition leaders of empty threats that they will do this or do that and instead challenged them to take the incriminating evidence of theft of the Eurobond funds to the relevant agencies for verification. 

He added that the Jubilee Government was open to scrutiny and had nothing to hide as it was its responsibility to ensure that all revenues collected is accounted for. He accused Raila Odinga of economic sabotage geared towards scaring away investors and donors from the country and bring down the Jubilee Government.

Mr Ruto said the government was ready to answer any questions, including those on the Eurobond and other corruption-related cases.

 Speaking during a funds drive for the St Benadictine Catholic Church in Ngoingwa, Thika the DP said, “When we tell them to meet Mr Rotich, they run to the streets to spread gossip. Kenyans need to know who is talking the truth. If you are big man, why should you ask questions whose answers are with a small person?” 

He said it was unfortunate that there were some people in the country who were capitalising on peoples' poverty to ascend to the country's leadership.

“If their intention is not to undermine this country let them challenge me. These people are not interested in anything good for this country. They are saboteurs bent on spreading rumours and propaganda."

The DP was accompanied by senators Kithure Kindiki and Beatrice Elachi, Thika Town MP Alice Ng’ang’a and her counterparts Kimani Ichung’wah (Kikuyu), Esther Gathogo (Ruiru), Irungu Kang’ata (Kiharu), and Murang’a Woman Rep Sabina Chege.

Senate Majority leader Kindiki Kithure said the Jubilee government is not averse to questions, but will only answer those that are "fair".

"Do not ask questions because it will benefit you politically. The Opposition is very quick to ask questions about allegations of corruption in the government but when they are asked they go mute," Kindiki said.

He added: “When you say you are the former Prime Minister yet you are an ordinary Kenyan, you are living in the past. Kenyans are beyond that type of brinkmanship.”
