Deputy President William Ruto has defended the stinkingly corrupt Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu over Sh2.1 billion theft unraveled by the Senate on Thursday last week when the governor presented himself to answer to audit queries.
Ruto, speaking at All Saints Catholic Church in Komothai, Githunguri on Sunday, however, defended Waititu saying the audit queries in question should not be directed at Waititu since they touched on National Government.
The DP who has severally been accused of abetting the runaway thuggery that has continued to cripple the Jubilee government told Waititu who was present, not to worry about the audit query raised by the Senate since he was only supposed to be asked things touching on Kiambu County.
“Watu wasimwulize Waititu maswali ya bure; yeye aulizwe mambo ya Kiambu County. Ile ya national government sisi tuko na mawaziri wengi wa kujibu. Tuulizwe mambo ya South Sudan, retired presidents and State House, tutajibu. Bibilia inatufudisha kila mtu atabeba msalaba wake. Huyu Baba Yao asiwekewe msalaba ambayo sio yake. Aulizwe ya Kiambu na sisi tuulizwe ya national government,” Ruto is quoted by the Standard as saying.
2017/2018 Kiambu budget had allocations for coordination of State House functions, South Sudan peace, free primary education and payments of retired presidents, none of them falls under devolved functions.
Waititu attributed his current woes to his support for Ruto’s 2022 presidential ambitions.
“All this you are seeing is because I am in team Tanga Tanga. But I want to say I am a Christian and I have been through a lot and God always sees me through. I only fear God and hot porridge,” Waititu says as quoted by the Standard.
