Boni Khalwale is jealous of William Ruto's rising star
By Joel Kimaiyo | March 7th 2017
My attention has been drawn to calls by Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale to the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission to audit the lifestyles of Jubilee leaders, especially Deputy President William Ruto.
To say Ruto's wealth should be audited simply because he transformed from a chicken seller to a billionaire only means Khalwale is jealous of Ruto's rising political star.
It was only recently that the senator claimed the source of the money Ruto donates during harambees was questionable. Khalwale is simply seeking cheap publicity.
All the DP is doing is helping the poor and it is unfortunate that Khalwale is against this. He should know Kenya is what it is because of the harambee effort, which has made it possible to implement projects or help individuals, for instance, raise school fees or clear medical bills.
Many churches, schools and hospitals have been built through harambee and Dr Khalwale knows this. But he criticises everything Ruto does, however, good it is. Instead of the criticism, he should also help the poor the way the Deputy President is doing.
