DP William Ruto Allies Expose Alleged Police Insurance Scandal in President's Office
Politicians allied to Deputy President William Ruto have vowed to fight back following the withdrawal of their security detail.
The MPs, mostly from Rift Valley and Mt Kenya region, have reportedly resolved to investigate an alleged police insurance scandal in the Office of the President.
Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro, an ardent supporter of Dr Ruto, stated that the MPs will be demanding questions on why a company with the highest quotation was awarded a tender for police insurance, yet there was another that quoted “a considerable amount of money”.
“The committee has received documents with scary facts about a company that was awarded a tender for the police insurance and had quoted Ksh1.7 billion while we had other companies quoting Ksh628 million, which were not considered,” he remarked.
“Very soon tables will turn and those responsible in the Office of President must explain every detail,” he added.
On the other hand, Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichungwa was adamant that the ‘Stop Ruto Movement’ would not succeed in forcing them into submission.
“If anyone imagines that we can live in fear and in the old age where you could coerce people or intimidate them into submission to certain political inclinations, that is someone living in the past,” he told the Nation.
He particularly directed his anger at Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho whom he accused of undermining the DP.
Likewise, Kericho Senator Aaron Cheruiyot, his Bomet counterpart Christopher Langat, Bureti MP Japeth Mutai and Hillary Koskei (Kipkelion West) threatened to spearhead impeachment of Cabinet Secretaries suspected to be undermining Dr Ruto.
“We shall bring an impeachment motion again them. We will no longer sit back and watch as the DP is embarrassed in a clear case of insubordination by his juniors,” Cheruiyot warned.
Among the leaders who have had their security withdrawn include: Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu, Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika and MPs Kimani Ichung’wah (Kikuyu), Kimani Ngunjiri(Bahati) and Alice Wahome (Kandara).
