Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto has accused the Jubilee administration of killing devolution by looting free maternity funds and other allocations meant for devolution.
Mr Ruto said the Jubilee administration had resorted to ‘eating’ everything including money meant for HIV/Aids victims, immunization of children and equipment money.
“They have eaten everything, next they will eat us,” he said rhetorically.
Speaking during Chama Cha Mashinani party (CCM) rally in Emurrua Dikirr, Narok County yesterday, Mr Ruto slammed the Jubilee administration for lying to Kenyans that they are keen to nurture devolution.
The former Council of Governors Chairman was accompanied by area MP Johanna Ng’eno. The duo officially opened a CCM party office at Dikirr Township before proceeding to address a mammoth crowd.
“We know they only allocate 30 percent of the total funds set aside for devolution to counties. They loot over 60 percent of the funds,” he said.
While addressing the rally attended by about 7000 residents, Mr Ruto demanded that the government must come clear on how the free maternity fund had been appropriated.
“They should tell us how Sh200million was allocated to a woman. How many children did she give birth to and in what mode of delivery so that she can spend a total Sh 200M?” he asked.
