Mutoko was the emcee along with fellow media personality Julie Gichuru at the high profile event which raised over Sh500 million in a record two hours.

Mutoko and Gichuru’s selfie with President Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto went viral on social media and was later splashed on the front page dailies the next morning; which brought into discussion how much the two media personalities were paid to emcee at the event.

In a bare-knuckle response on her You Tube channel , Mutoko put the matter to rest as she told off Kenyans to stop burning with jealousy over the matter.

Mutoko revealed that they were paid nothing by Kenyatta for emceeing at the event and said that they did not charge a shilling for their services.

“Nobody made that decision for us. We made that decision on our own and decided not to charge anything. We told the President that we had profited our fee as a gift to him and to his fund raiser” Mutoko said.

He took a swipe at the Nasa fund raiser that was held a few days after the president's daring her haters to try and charge at the event.

"They will be like Caroline and Julie did not charge Uhuru at his fund raiser! Who are you?" Mutoko said.

The exclusive fund raising dinner was held at the Safari Park hotel and was strictly reserved for a few invited high profile wealthy individuals.

It was organised by an NGO known as Friends of Jubilee Foundation to raise funds in support of President Kenyatta’s re-election bid.
