DP William Ruto has dared former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga, to reveal the people who looted billions of cash at Kenya Medical Supplies Agency (KEMSA), last year if he isn’t a thief of public funds.
In a interview with Radio Jambo on Tuesday morning, Ruto challenged Raila, the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party pioneer, to mention names of the people and friends delegates ensnared in the Sh 7.8 billion KEMSA heist.
However, the second in command raised worry that any individual who visits him at his home is marked as corrupt.
“A cheat safeguarding another criminal who has been ensnared in the KEMSA embarrassment says he will capture every one of the bad individuals in this country.
“Let him (Raila) give us names of all those behind the COVID-19 millionaires and stop defending them,” Ruto said.
At the same time, the second in command raised concern that anyone who visits him at home is branded corrupt.
”Today, people know clearly that if you are a friend of the deputy president or even if you even visit him, then expect the DCI at your doorsteps.
“So it is not that you have stolen anything but because they have been sighted at my home,” Ruto said.
He affirmed that some political leaders are hesitant to meet him openly inspired by a paranoid fear of getting arrested.
”There are so many leaders who want to meet me secretly because they fear being summoned by the DCI. So people are receiving calls and being cautioned against associating themselves with me. If you support Ruto, then we shall charge you in court with a corruption case,” the DP said.
