The Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) has refused to release Deputy President William Ruto’s wealth declaration form as demanded by activist Boniface Mwangi in a defamation suit filed by Ruto against him.

KRA has now written to Mwangi’s lawyer, Gitobu Imanyara, asking him to seek Ruto’s approval before the documents are released.

Imanyara says IEBC has also refused to share Ruto’s wealth declaration form after Mwangi demanded for the same from KRA and IEBC since 2013 when he was elected as the second in command.

The lawyer says they will now file a petition in court to compel KRA to release Ruto’s wealth declaration form.

Mwangi made the demands in relation to a defamation case filed by Ruto over alleged defamatory tweets by the activist touching on the death of businessman Jacob Juma.

According to Ruto, the tweets linked him to the murder of Juma, corruption and land grabbing, which tarnished his good reputation.
