Governors are corrupt, Deputy President William Ruto says

Deputy President William Ruto has challenged governors agitating for a national referendum to first account for the money allocated to them during the previous financial year.

The DP said the push for referendum by the governors was a way of hiding from accounting for the money they have been given by the national government.

Mr Ruto said the biggest threat to devolution and the national government was corruption, theft and lack of accountability.

“Governors are telling us that if we pressure them for accountability, they will work with CORD. But we are telling them that accountability is not a favour, but a must. Accountability for public funds is not negotiable,” he said.
