Kuria: Bomet Governor eyeing DP Ruto ICC downfall

22 September 2014, 13:34 William Korir

Nairobi - Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has claimed that Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto is eyeing Deputy President William Ruto's demise in the Hague to take over Kalenjin politics.

Kuria says that the push for the referendum by Governors in the Jubilee coalition is purely a plot to undermine the current leadership.

He also insists that Isaac Ruto's ploy is to become Kalenjin kingpin if DP Ruto does indeed fall victim to the current ICC surge.

" The governors ploy of a referendum is sinister because if they are keen on making such progress, can they prove that they are using personal funds to run campaigns? ", he posed.

He also insists that only Ruto will gain from getting through a referendum.

" If he (Isaac Ruto) pushes through a referendum, he will position himself to push out DP Ruto when he is away at the ICC. That is his plan ", he sensationally claimed in Konoin in the Rift Valley Sunday.

Kuria also wants the bank accounts of Governors in the referendum campaign frozen to stop them using public funds.

" They should continue their campaigns with their accounts frozen so they do not touch public funds, he insisted.

Kuria has also previously called on those supporting the referendum to quit the ruling coalition.

The Pesa Mashinani campaign signature collection kicked off over the weekend in Bomet, home of Ruto, and is expected to continue all over the country in the coming weeks.

Governors say they do not have the funds necessary to see through their campaign promises and want the referendum to increase funding threshold to at-least 45% of national revenue to aid devolution.
