'DP Ruto influenced clearance of Kambi, Ngilu'

02 June 2015, 09:23 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - The office of the deputy president influenced the clearance of two cabinet ministers who had been forced to step aside after they were implicated with corruption, a member of parliament has claimed.

Kuresoi south MP, Zakayo Cheruiyot said that deputy president William Ruto used senior officers at his office to influence the investigations against cabinet ministers Charity Ngilu and Kazungu Kambi who are his close associates.

Speaking Sunday in Nakuru town, Cheruiyot said the DP feared that implication of the two ministers would have dented his political image and therefore used his powers to influence the outcome of the investigations.

“It was surprising for the office of the director of pubic prosecutions to tell Kenyans that there was no evidence to implicate Kambi and Ngilu when it was clear that they engaged in corruption. The office of the deputy president sent senior officials to influence the outcome of the investigations with the aim of protecting the DP's image,” said Cheruiyot.

Cheruiyot called on the deputy president to stop protecting corrupt officers who are close to him.

“Ruto should be bold like president Uhuru and stop being a friend and beneficiary of corruption because doing that only makes him an enemy of Kenyans and it will haunt him in 2022,” he said.
