Rachel happy to cook for my visitors, Ruto tells Raila
10 January 2016, 10:39
Nairobi - DP William Ruto has told off CORD leader Raila Odinga's complaints over his ability to host thousands of guests at his home, stating that he should mind his own business.
Ruto has been hosting thousands of delegates at his home in Sugoi in an apparent bid to win votes in the said areas.
Some of the delegations have been from Western Kenya, Kisii, and the Rift Valley.
The CORD leader though has raised the question of how Ruto can afford to host the so far 12,000 guests who have come to his home, suggesting that he has been using public funds to achieve his goals.
But Ruto, in a reply to the CORD leader, stated that he should merely mind how own business.

" Rachel (Ruto's wife) has not complained about cooking for my guests so I do not understand why someone else should," he stated on Saturday.
" I am happy to host the guests and they are happy to come. Maybe those who are complaining should look for some of their own," he mocked.
The estimated cost of hosting the delegations in Sugoi is said to be in the hundreds of millions, prompting the CORD leader to ask questions and call for a lifestyle audit of the DP.
Ruto says he is open to declaring his assets.
" If they want to know my worth, they know where to got to," he said in a parting shot.
