Unconvincing Ruto leaves more questions than answers

27 October 2015, 18:43 William Korir

Nairobi - Deputy President William Ruto left more questions than answers over the current state of government as well as his own personal spending in a television interview.

Ruto took to K24 TV Monday night to answer questions over the current state of the government coffers as well as the state of corruption as well as his own personal life.

He was especially under the spotlight over the building of a KES 1.2 billion house in the Rift Valley especially as regards its funding.

Ruto though in usual fashion was combative.

" Only a fool would build a house for such kind of money and I am not the one," he said whilst admitting that indeed he was building the house in Moiben.

He also had a go at the press for peddling the story which he describes as soft and false.

" The media and some papers have run the story but I understand that they need to pay salaries and have readers and I can take it. I have no hard feelings," he added.

Members of the public though were not convinced by his utterances and were not sold on his remarks.

Several spoken to by News24 were unhappy with the manner in which he spoke.

" He spoke with so much arrogance and did not even answer the questions at hand. How is he funding such a big house?," James Musyoki a newspaper vendor told News24.

Rita Wambui a hairdresser watched the interview and was not happy with what went on.

" I was not happy that he took time to turn the heat on other people instead of giving Kenyans good explanations over ongoing problems," she said.

As for Willis Ouma, Ruto has yet to explain the massive amounts of money he hands out during harambee's as well as his personal projects.

" The DP has to explain how he became rich overnight. How can he afford to have a house with an airstrip," he insisted.

Ruto also owns the Weston Hotel in Nairobi, which he has admitted to building.
