ODM party leader Raila Odinga has once again hit out at Deputy President William Ruto over his church donations.
Raila, in an apparent veiled attack on William Ruto and his allies, accused him of perpetuating corruption through church donations.
This, especially in line with the facing out of the old 1000 shilling note, the ODM leader who was speaking during the burial of former transport and licensing board chairman Hassan Ole Kamwaru in Narok county, observed that corrupt individuals were seeking to get rid of corruption proceeds ahead of the Monday deadline.
‘The government is going to face out the old one thousand shilling note at the end of this month. They have now brought the old currencies to churches as one way of getting rid of them” stated Raila.
Raila also called for the arrests of such individuals whom he said cannot account for all the money they usually donate in churches.
“Others are carrying huge amount of money in sacs to churches. When asked where they got the money from, they cannot account for. Those people should be behind bars” he added
Raila’s sentiments came just a day before the deputy president leads a mega inter denominations fundraising function in Eldoret.
Ruto who is the chief guest will be hosted by Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi at Momoniat Primary school in Megun, Kapseret constituency on Sunday, September 29, 2019.
He will be joined by several other Jubilee leaders from across the country where it is expected that 2022 politics will take a center stage.
Ruto’s visit to his Rift Valley backyard comes just days after a section of clerics from the region cried foul over Ruto’s recent donations in central Kenya only.
According to the clerics, Ruto had neglected his backyard in terms of church donations insisting that they also wanted to have a bite of his generous donations before the September 30 deadline.
Church demands donations from Ruto before September 30th!🤣🤣🙆Churches in Rift Valley now want an 'equitable share of the national cake' before September 30 deadline?
