Lugari Member of Parliament Ayub Savula has asked Interior CS Fred Matiang'i to conduct an audit of projects launched by Deputy President William Ruto since 2015.

The legislator expressed concerns that a number of the projects, especially in his constituency, had stalled.

"The Deputy President launched a Technical Training College project at Chevaywa, but the Sh100 million he said was set aside for the project has never been released since his visit in 2015, and efforts to push for the disbursement of the money have hit a brick wall," Savula noted.

The MP explained that he has been forced to use funds from the local CDF kitty to kick off the promised project.

The Lugari member revealed that he had already disbursed Sh15 million to get the project going.

In July 2018, DP Ruto visited Navakholo where he presided over the ground-breaking ceremony for the training college that is expected to cost Sh60 million.

He promised an additional Sh50 million toward the purchase of learning equipment for the college.

In December 2018, the DP toured Emuhaya Constituency where he launched a Sh180 million road tarmacking project.

In Vihiga County, Dr Ruto launched the first phase of the county's water project estimated to cost Sh1.8 billion with the promise that it will be completed by July 2019.
