Deputy President William Ruto has bee on the receiving end following his comments on Arror and Kamwerer dams project saga.

Most of his allies believe the graft war is just away of killing DP Ruto’s presidential ambitions.

Now Nyeri Townn MP Ngunjiri Wambugu says that DP has no lock on the presidency and should quit the 2022 race if he cannot campaign within “the reality”. 

The government will not relent in fighting corruption and pursuing cohesion so that Ruto becomes president, Wambugu said.

Instead, Ruto’s ambition for State House can be sacrificed, he said.

“It is not written anywhere that he (Ruto) must be President,” Wambugu wrote on his Facebook Page.

“Kenya is more important than any single person’s ambition, including his (Ruto’s) ambition).” 

Ruto and his allies claim the war on graft is aimed at derailing his 2022 presidential bid.

Wambugu said no community was being targeted in the fight against corruption.

He said of the 115 already charged with corruption, 43 were Kikuyus, 18 Luos, 11 Kalenjins, six Kambas, six Merus and five from the Abagusii community. There are three Taitas and two each from Mijikenda and Aembu.

Borana, Sabaot, Ilchamus, Maasai, Duruma, Somali, Pokomo and Digo have one suspect each, Wambugu said.

He accused Kalenjin political leaders headed by Ruto, Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi and Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen of trying to make Kenyans believe the anti-graft war was targeting their community.

He said none of the suspects stole public finds and shared the loot with their community.

Ruto and allies are facing strong criticisms for taking a swipe at the investigating agencies to frustrate the war on graft.
