Deputy President William Ruto on Sunday, February 16, 2020, rubbished claims that his office was used for fraudulent procurement dealings.

Through social media, Ruto stated that the office of the Deputy President is not involved in procurement for any ministry or state department.

In the post, the Deputy President asked his supporters to get the facts right to avoid being misinformed.

“ODP does NOT procure for any ministry/department. Question: other than 23min in Annex, for months, which government offices involved in the 'tender' did the scammers visit? Did they access DOD? Who facilitated? Who did they meet?”

“Get the truth. Forget the sponsored NONSENSE in media” posted Ruto.

On Saturday, February 15, 2020, Ruto rubbished the stories going around about his involvement in Ex CS Rashid Echesa’s woes.

Through social media, Ruto termed the stories as a desperate attempt by his political competitors to diminish his stature.

Former CS Rashid Echesa was arrested on Friday, February 14, 2020, in connection to a fake tender deal to supply the government with military surveillance equipment, guns, and ammunition.

His arrest followed a complaint by two gun dealers who claimed he had swindled them Sh11.5 million they had paid as ‘consultancy fees’.
