The war of words between President Ruto’s team and the former government seems to be an endless mess considering that fresh accusations have continued to emerge with each passing day.
In a recent outburst, Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua called out the former government as he accused them of looting billions of taxpayers’ money.
While making the explosive remarks, Gachagua declared his intention of sharing more details by naming government officials who served under Uhuru’s regime responsible for the alleged theft.
The second in command added that the money was stolen between the period Ruto was declared president and when he took over office. According to him the opposition party’s move to contest results at the supreme court was to serve as a distraction while the looting happened.
This is not the first time the Deputy President has raised concern about this matter and has been lamenting about inheriting a dilapidated economy since the inauguration day.
These fresh allegations come at a time when Kenyans have been pressuring the government to ease the burden of the high cost of living whereas the head of state and his officials have continuously urged Kenyans to be patient as they try to revive the economy.
