For a long time now, Deputy President William Ruto’s source of wealth has been a subject of discussion among Kenya’s top political leaders,The DP often maintains he earned his money cleanly having risen from a chicken seller in Sugoi to being the country’s second in command.
In the latest attack on the former Eldoret North MP, the former prime minister questioned why he was donating goodies worth millions of shillings to the Kenyan youth yet he earned a “meagre” salary.
“You see him (Ruto) giving out wheelbarrows, motorbikes and water tanks to the youth to do business. How can one man donate KSh 100 million in a month yet his salary is less than KSh 2 million? He posed before adding: “Where does he get all these money and it is not accounted for by the government?”
Ruto in his response while leading an empowerment of the 2,000-member Getembe Boda Boda Sacco and 118 women and youth groups in Kitutu Chache South and South Mugirango, Kisii county, asked Kenyans to forgive the Opposition leader since he didn’t know the real meaning of “hustlers“.
“I forgive that man (Raila). His father was a vice president and was born and driven on a car. He was taken to a supermarket and didn’t go to a kiosk or knew what a boda boda is. Let’s just forgive him because hajui mambo ya mahustlers (He isn’t aware what hustling means),” Ruto clapped back.
