Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu has blasted Deputy President William Ruto for allegedly stealing billions of taxpayer’s money set aside to build Thwake dam, which would have benefitted the people of Makueni county.

Speaking on Friday, November 12, in Makueni County during the Orange Democratic Movement leader Raila Odinga’s Azimio la Umoja campaign, Ngilu said DP Ruto was the root cause of the project derailing by inflating the original cost of the project.

“Thwake dam project was KSh 13 billion, but he (William Ruto) was fighting for it to be KSh 39 billion. That is the money being carried in sacks every day as he walks around,” Ngilu said to suggest the project cost was increased and the rest of the money stolen.

The first phase of the project was co-funded by the government of Kenya and the African Development Bank.

“I am shocked when I see this guy (William Ruto). I always switch off. When he appears on Citizen TV, I wonder what is this. I switch off until he is done,” said governor Ngilu.
