Kalonzo blasts DP Ruto over claims on Yatta land
Former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka has dismissed claims that he grabbed government land in Yatta, Machakos County.
Kalonzo claims the allegations made by Deputy President William Ruto in Bomet, are part of a wider plot to taint his name and he is inviting investigating agencies to move in and conduct investigations insisting he has nothing to hide.
“Addressing a rally in Bomet on Friday, DP Ruto made a frivolous and unsubstantiated claim to the effect that I grabbed government land in Yatta… The wild claims hold no water. The allegations are a cheap and desperate attempt at character assassination,” said Kalonzo.
“I have endeavored to uphold the highest moral and ethical standards in all my public affairs. I have nothing to hide. I challenge authorities to open investigations into this matter.”
Kalonzo accused the deputy president of causing division and incitement in the country, comparing him to US President Donald Trump.
“DP Ruto has been fomenting bitter division and a class war instead of preaching unity and cohesiveness. As a disrupter of law and order, he is easily comparable to outgoing US President Donald Trump. People like DP Ruto must not be given the chance to wreak havoc through manipulation. They must be stopped on their tracks,” added the Wiper party leader.
