Ruto's name was removed from graft list, claims Wetang'ula

30 March 2015, 09:31 Arap Yego

Bungoma - Cord co-principal Moses Wetang’ula has sensationally claimed that the name of Deputy President William Ruto was removed from the graft report that was presented to President Uhuru Kenyatta last week.

Wetang’ula who is also the Bungoma Senator said that State House operatives expunged Ruto’s name from the list presented to President Uhuru Kenyatta last week by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission.

Speaking over the weekend during a funeral service in Kimwanga in Bumula constituency, Wetang’ula said the war on corruption in Kenya will not be won if some people are protected by the government.

“We want to tell President Uhuru Kenyatta to know that his efforts to fight corruption will bear no fruit if he still protects some people in his administration. We would take him more seriously if he asked his deputy William Ruto to step aside too,” said Wetang’ula.

He at the same time asked governors mentioned in the graft list  not to step aside, noting that the president has no powers  to order them to do so.

“It will be unconstitutional for the governors mentioned in the list to step aside as directed by President Uhuru Kenyatta. Let them stay in office and continue serving members of the public,” he said.

Bungoma Governor Ken Lusaka, former ministers Eugane Wamalwa ( Justice and Constitutional Affairs) and Musikari Kombo( Local Government) also attended the funeral.
