Uhuru, Ruto asked to name campaign financiers

07 January 2013, 17:27

Kisii -  Several ODM MPs led by Public Works Minister Chris Obure have asked Jubilee Alliance leaders to make public who was financing their presidential campaigns.

According to The Standard, the leaders who included Trade Assistant Minister Manson Nyamweya, Cord Kisii County gubernatorial candidate James Ongwae and city lawyer Joash Maangi challenged Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta and his presidential running mate William Ruto to disclose their source of wealth.

Nyamweya asked the two to tell Kenyans who is funding their campaigns because the public has a right to that information. However, Kenyatta’s spokesman Munyori Buku dismissed the calls, saying the law requiring parties to disclose their funding has not come into force.
