Raila hits back at Ruto

23 March 2015, 18:59 William Korir

Nairobi - CORD leader Raila Odinga has hit back at Deputy President William Ruto over claims that the previous and not current government is to blame for corruption.

The CORD leader in a statement argued that the Jubilee government had everything to do with corruption and that the more they speak on corruption, the more angered Kenyans become.

Raila says that under the current regime, Kenya has fallen behind other countries famed for the vice and urged Ruto to instead work on dealing with the matter.

" It is deeply saddening to hear senior government officials refuse to take charge of the issue that is corruption and deal with it in finality, he said.

" Corruption poses a risk to Kenya’s very stability as a State and threatens our peace as it destroys our institutions of governance," he added.

Raila says that Kenyans are angry at the lack of effort from the government in dealing with the vice and says that there is now not much to expect from the government, a state that is worrying.

" The Jubilee administration has failed catastrophically in dealing with corruption."

" Virtually every dawn begins with the revelation of a new scandal conceived and executed by Jubileethen agents and to a high degree," he added.

On Ruto's assertion that he does not have the moral grounds to speak on corruption, he said that he would not relent.

" I shall continue to speak out, warn, empathize with citizens and play my rightful role as leader of the opposition in Kenya," he added.

Ruto claimed over the weekend that most of the corruption incidences currently affecting the country arose from previous governments which Raila was a part of.
