Bomet Governor Isaac Rutto has blasted the EACC for cooking fictitious and malicious allegations against him and other leaders to set stage for petty JAP politics.
Rutto dared EACC to take all the houses, choppers and petrol stations they are accusing him of owning irregularly if they can point them out, saying he doesn’t own any.
The governor also wondered why he would purchase a chopper in 2015, and not an oil field in Turkana which is much profitable and will change the lives of the locals.
“To claim that I own a chopper is a bid lie to the public. I can possibly not own aÂ chopper, perhaps, one day I will own one or even a Dreamliner. Today, instead ofÂ owning a chopper, I would spend my money on oil fields in Turkana which will beÂ beneficial to the locals and the nation as whole,” he said.
“The EACC has claimed that I own a house worth over Ksh. 30M in Nairobi. I haveÂ no idea where this said house is and I invite the Commission to show me where itÂ is located.Â They have further claimed that I own 33 petrol stations. Nothing can be furtherÂ from the truth. I own not a single gas station and again I invite the Commission toÂ help me trace them for purposes of clarity. I have never sold even paraffin in myÂ life. So many unfounded allegations have been advanced against me in the EACCÂ confidential report to the President including misappropriation of funds aimed atÂ enhancing development in Bomet County,” he said.
The Bomet leader has warned the Jubilee that they will lose terribly in 2017 because of the way they’ve cheapened the fight against poverty and corruption in the country. Rutto, like many leaders mentioned in the EACC list claim the commission is in cahoots with the government to injure the reputation of leaders opposed to its policies and new party.
“I know I have been a target of politics of malice and humiliation by the powers thatÂ be for refusing to sing their song of bad governance, intimidation, mudslinging andÂ hypocrisy. My position on the formation of Jubilee Alliance Party (JAP) and myÂ continued criticism of the party is the main reason for this smear campaign” said Rutto.
He added, “I want the Jubilee administration to know that Kenyans are not so naÃ¯ve. They haveÂ matured both in thoughts and in terms of democracy. Jubilee should read theÂ writing on the wall and be alive to the fact that what happened to JAP in KajiadoÂ Central on March 16th 2015 awaits them in 2017. What happened to a rigid regimeÂ of President Goodluck Jonathan on Saturday 28th March 2015 will happen to themÂ in 2017”.
