Analysts :What DP Ruto ‘Lied’ about during His Interview on NTV

Deputy President William Ruto was not honest when he declared his willingness to undergo lifestyle audit, he still believes he is the target of the directive issued by President Uhuru Kenyatta last month- political pundits who appeared on NTV’s AM live show on Monday argued.

Speaking during an interview on Sunday, the Deputy President reiterated his readiness for the exercise but questioned why the focus was solely on him when there were other wealthy people in the country who nobody was asking about sources of their wealth.

“Mtoto wa maskini akipata ameiba, lakini mtoto wa tajiri akiiba wanasema ni mali ya babake (When a poor man’s child becomes wealthy it is said he has stolen, but when a rich man’s child steals it is said the wealth belongs to his father),” Ruto said but noted he had heard the ‘profound’ saying from someone in Kakamega.

During the AM live show , political analysts led by Arnold Maliba decrypted DP’s remark by saying that it was an indirect attack on President Uhuru whose father,the late Mzee Jomo Kenyatta,was wealthy.

“Ruto’s allies led by Kapsaret MP Oscar Sudi and Nandi Senator Samson Cherargai have been calling for the lifestyle audit of Mzee Kenyatta.”

“Money has a history. There’s no way it just comes. The DP was getting back at his boss. Who is the ‘mtoto wa tajiri’ here,” remarked Arnold Maliba on NTV.

Appearing on the same show, Fred Okango, a governance expert, said Ruto was firing shots at someone but noted the DP didn’t want to mention the individual.

“If you listen to the answers and statements from the DP, he is firing salvos at someone. We don’t know who that person is,” Okango remarked.
