The outgoing Jubilee administration to be subjected to judicial investigation, claims Ruto.
This clarification came after a local daily, in its analysis of the presidential hopeful’s manifesto, reported that he would establish a quasi-judicial public inquiry to investigate the extent of cronyism and state capture during the second half of Uhuru’s 10year rule.
“We are the ones who voted for Uhuru Kenyatta. We voted for him na hakuna mtu atamfuata, hakuna mtu atamfanya chochote, tunamheshimu kama kiongozi ambaye anaenda kuretire,” Ruto said.
“He is trying to correct me, but I’m telling my brother, you told me you wanted to work with the others. If they have failed, what are you blaming me for? When I stepped aside, the Big Four collapsed.”
Despite the fact that he has been the Deputy President since 2013, Dr Ruto has lately been playing a peripheral role in government after his falling-out with the President.
He is also accussing the Jubilee government of being beholden to the people he calls cartels, fraudsters and economic saboteurs, and whom he blames for the rising cost of living.
