Deputy President Dr. William Ruto on February 27 disputed reports that Sh21 billion allocated to Arror and Kimwarer dam projects in Elgeyo-Marakwet has been lost.
Speaking during the launch of a status report on Judiciary at the Supreme Court, Dr Ruto insisted that facts on the projects should be understood in order to nail the corruption suspects.
“You’ve heard that government has lost about Sh21 billion in Kimwarer and Arror dam, which is a flat lie!”.
He added: “The money in question is about Sh7 billion and for every coin that has been paid, we have a bank guarantee. No money will be lost because we are a responsible government.”
How Kenyans reacted to Ruto’s scanty information and his guts to tell Kenyans that actually there is some money unaccounted for, shows that they were upset. Here is one hilarious response from Twitter.
