Lifestyle Audit: DP Ruto on the spot after donating 60 Million in Harambees in record time
Concerns raised on where DP Ruto gets the millions to donate in harambees
Coming at a time when President Uhuru Kenyatta has ordered for a lifestyle audit on state officers in the wake of massive corruption in government, the figure which excludes donations made in private has attracted the interest of the public.
The DP who has been gracing harambees across the country has sent tongues wagging as to where he gets the money to make such hefty donations, even as a lifestyle audit ordered by President Uhuru Kenyatta stirred his camp.
That the DP is a man of able means with interest in business is not in doubt. However, in a recent TV interview, he declined to confirm whether he regarded himself as a rich man despite all indications pointing otherwise.
Alluding to the source of his generous donations, DP Ruto told a Church gathering in Kayole “There are people who sometimes shock us by asking why we go to churches and why we donate towards church projects. But if you investigate these people they spend their money on witchcraft” .
“Because we do not ask them where they got the money that they spend on witchcraft, they should let us contribute to the work of God”. Ruto said.
The DP has however maintained that his generous donations are within his means, stating that “unlike God, who gave His son as a sacrifice, none of us is being asked to give more than we can”.
The DP is scheduled to attend a fund-raiser today in Kilifi where his generosity is expected to continue.
Kieni MP Kanini Kega sought to clear the air stating that it should not be assumed that "we rely on our salaries but they are wrong. We have businesses that supplement our salaries and from the profits we get, we have money to donate”.
Below is a list of some donations made by the DP in within the last six months.
