Chinese company denies bribing DP William Ruto

05 June 2015, 22:05 Arap Yego

Nairobi - The feud between Deputy President William Ruto and Herbert Ojwang’ has taken a new twist after a Chinese company at the center of the row denied issuing bribes.

In a press statement, China Wu Yi Company distanced itself from claims made by Ojwang’ that the firm  issued bribes to the  Deputy President for them to get a tender to upgrade the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital (MTRH)  in Eldoret.

Ojwang who is an Ex-Personal Assistant to Former Prime minister Raila Odinga on Thursday showed journalists pictures purportedly showing Ruto receiving a briefcase from the chinese contractor.

Ojwang explained that the briefcase contained a ‘gift’ to the Deputy President which would have ensured that they clinch the contract to refurbish the hospital at a cost of KES 17 Billion.

“While it is true that we made a courtesy call to the Deputy President’s office, we did so to brief him about the proposed project at Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital. We did not issue a bribe ” Liu Hui, the CEO of China Wu Yi said in the statement send on Friday  

“Mr Ojwang’ has no authority to speak on behalf of China Wuyi Company. Any clarifications are to be made through the company,” Hui further said.

Ojwang on Thursday threatened to sue Deputy President, William Ruto for defaming him on national television and calling him a conman.

“Ruto defamed me on national television and misled Kenyans. He called me a conman and yet I am only a whistle-blower,” he said.

“I have instructed a team of prominent lawyers to handle a libel case pitting me against the Deputy President,” added Ojwang'.
