Friday, February 25, 2022 – The debate on Deputy President William Ruto’s wealth resurfaced in Parliament yesterday after a member of the August house asked for a report regarding part of the DP’s property.
While speaking before the floor of the House, Jubilee Nominated MP David Sankok asked Parliament to compel Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i to disclose details of land alleged to belong to Ruto.
The ally of the DP asked the CS to furnish the August house with information about an Agricultural Development Corporation (ADC) land located in Laikipia County.
According to Sankok, it was prudent for the CS to provide information over the land which was said to be around 15,000 acres.
He stated that there was a need for Kenyans to know the truth regarding the land.
“Could the CS provide specific details of the parcel of land located in Laikipia County which he claimed is owned by the Deputy President during his appearance before the Committee on Administration and National Security on September 1, 2021?”
“He should include the land reference number, size, date of acquisition, and the previous ownership,” Sankok stated.
On his part, National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi, who was chairing the session, stated that the matter would be handled by the House Committee on Administration and National Security.
While appearing before the committee on security in September last year, Matiang’i furnished lawmakers with documents indicating that the government had deployed six officers to guard ADC Mutara ranch, which he claimed belonged to Ruto.
