‘The Deputy President William Ruto has no moral authority to speak about corruption,’ These are exact words from Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho who has jumped on the defense of Orange Democratic leader Hon Raila Odinga.
“What moral authority does he (Dr Ruto) have to speak about corruption? If there is someone who should not speak on this issue it’s him,” said Mr Joho, adding that those linking Mr Odinga to the gold scandal are only out to gain fame.
While President Kenyatta and Mr Odinga’s allies have accused the DP’s brigade of undermining the war against graft, the DP’s supporters have hit back at them for “preaching water and drinking wine”.
Last Saturday, Dr Ruto challenged opposition leaders to shed light on claims that they tried to intercede in the gold scam by reaching out to President Kenyatta.
He was referring to a leaked audio clip of a man who sounds like Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang’ula telling the alleged con victim from Dubai that he would contact the President and Mr Odinga.
Wow. This is a huge expose. I think the position of senator Moses Wetangula is no longer tenable. pic.twitter.com/ZQMg6fEVzC

“I tell our brothers in the opposition not to import their bad habits to Jubilee; they should stop engaging in dirty deals, corruption and conning others,” said Dr Ruto.
Those who used to preach to us about CORRUPTION have turned out to be false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves as written in the good book Mathew 7:15
