Tuju who is also the Azimio la Umoja Executive Director said the former Eldoret North MP who is seeking to succeed outgoing President Uhuru Kenyatta cannot be trusted with the Central Bank of Kenya (CBK).
Addressing residents of Mt Kenya on Tuesday, May 3, Tuju said the deputy president’s appetite for corruption makes him unfit to be trusted with the highest office on land.
“Mnataka kumpea huyo mtu Central Bank of Kenya na hawezi hata kuwachungia ghala la mahindi,” Tuju posed.
Loosely translated to: “You want to take the Central Bank of Kenya into the hands of that person who cannot even take care of your maize reserve,” Tuju said.
Tuju, further castigated the deputy president for opposing major constitutional amendments that aimed at empowering the common citizens.
While terming the former Jubilee deputy party leader as an anti-reformist who prefers bribing voters through church donations to improving the country’s ailing economic instability.
“How can you say he (William Ruto) is a reformist yet when we were fighting for the new constitution, he said no. When we say one shilling, one man, one vote, he says no, so that CBK loses KSh 54 billion in a year,
“This is a big loss for Mt Kenya, then he comes with KSh 1 million to the church pretending like a Pharisee… We should not even be coming here to tell where to look because the truth is known,” Tuju said.
This comes just days after the deputy president accused his boss of stripping his duties and assigning them to other unnamed people.
