Tuesday July 23, 2019-Embakasi East MP, Babu Owino, has called for the immediate arrest of Deputy President William Ruto over the Sh 63 billion Arror and Kimwarer dams.
On Monday, Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) detectives arrested Treasury CS, Henry Rotich and his PS, Kamau Thugge for stealing sh 19.5 billion meant for the construction of two dams in Elgeyo Marakwet County.
But according to Babu Owino , Rotich and Thugge are just spectators and the real culprit of the scandal is William Ruto.
"Ruto should resign and must be arrested," Babu Owino said.
However, Elgeyo Marakwet Senator, Kipchumba Murkomen, has poured cold water on the arrests saying it a narrative being created to damage Ruto’s 2022 presidential credentials.
“My conclusion from what I have seen is that we are not fighting corruption. What is happening is that we are lying to Kenyans and trying to create a narrative that is meant to show that there is an ongoing war on corruption,” Murkomen said.
