Ruto allies Ichung’wah and Cheruiyot issue demands to Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka after hosting former President Uhuru Kenyatta.
National Assembly Majority Leader Kimani Ichung’wah and his Senate counterpart Aaron Cheruiyot fired at Kalonzo asking him to tell Uhuru to come clean on alleged plunder during his tenure.
According to the two leaders, Uhuru made the decision to appear in public on Sunday after discovering that Ichung’wah intended to initiate the establishment of a State Capture Commission.
It so happens that both leaders are members of the National Dialogue Committee (NADOC), which is co-chaired by Ichung’wah and Kalonzo.
“It is time we had a candid discussion ( in public) with Uhuru Kenyatta on the economy, the effects of State capture on the economy, and the mess we are sorting in this Country’s economy. Please get him on stage,” Ichung’wah told Kalonzo.
Ichung’wah added that he was grateful Kalonzo had brought the former president back to the political scene.
He clarified that this was the only way Kenyans could learn the whole truth regarding the amount of public funds embezzled under Uhuru’s administration.
Cheruiyot, who is also a member of NADOC, agreed with his counterpart in the National Assembly that the Kenya Kwanza administration was headed toward regaining stolen public funds.
He said that Uhuru’s return to limelight was solely intended to undermine the proposed State Capture Commission.
“I agree with Kenyans telling us to slow down on taxation and go hard on recovering what’s stashed abroad first,” Cheruiyot stated.
This comes after on Sunday, Uhuru threw a political jab at President William Ruto’s administration remarking that the government was run on excuses.
He stated that instead of taking responsibility, the Kenya Kwanza administration was apportioning blame for every misstep to him.
