Close DP Ruto’s ally MUrkomen argued Raila is a selfish man
Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen has claimed former prime minister Raila Odinga is richer than Deputy President William Ruto. The Jubilee lawmaker described the ODM leader as a “stingy” man who cannot share his riches with the poor.
Taking to Twitter on Saturday, September 12, Murkomen argued Raila was a selfish man who was jealous of Ruto’s success.
“FACT: Raila and Jaramogi’s Family are richer than Ruto. FACT: Raila can afford to donate more motorbikes than Ruto. FACT: Raila doesn’t want to do it. FACT: Raila is a selfish miser Case closed. Next …,” Murkomen wrote.
The legislator’s remarks came after Raila questioned the source of Ruto’s wealth which he claimed could be proceeds from corruption. 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”.
Let us be mindful about the sorry situation of millions of Kenyans struggling to meet their daily needs and above all put food on the table. Let us acknowledge that every Hustle matters. pic.twitter.com/THqfmH3diu
