Thursday August 29, 2019-Former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo has revealed that he had personally witnessed Tanga Tanga MPs being given Sh50,000 each to accompany Deputy President William Ruto to a harambee.
Speaking during an interview with Kameme TV, Kabogo insisted that Ruto’s frequent tours were not about development, but were early campaigns that were taking time that should have been used in formulating policies.
Kabogo was defending his speech at the funeral service of the late John De’Mathew where he challenged Ruto and ODM Leader Raila Odinga to stop early campaigns.
“You cannot be moving around the country purporting to launch all manner of projects. When will the government projects work? I always wonder, for example, what would a Kiambu MP be doing in Turkana every other weekend?”
“I have attended such harambees and I saw them being given 50,000 to add on to boss’ harambee contribution. It is not their money. Ask yourself why they always give 50,000,” Kabogo said in an interview on Kameme TV.
At the same time, Kabogo praised President Kenyatta’s war on corruption, saying he was sure those implicated in graft deserved no mercy.
