Bomet County Woman Representative Joyce Korir, on Wednesday 16 June 2021, admitted that Deputy President William Ruto had a hand in frustrating President Uhuru Kenyatta in their first term at State House, making his work difficult.
Joyce, in a Facebook post, said that it is true that there was no development in President Uhuru Kenyatta’s first term as there was a lot of corruption and maladministration in government.
She added that that was why the likes of former Cabinet Secretaries such as Henry Rotich were purged because of Error and Kimwarer dams and Eng. John Mosonik was demoted diplomatically.
The Bomet Woman Rep went on to point out that the country is currently suffering because of the consequences of DP William Ruto’s actions in their first term.
“To be honest, William Ruto made Uhuru Kenyatta’s first term to be so difficult and up to now we are suffering the consequences of the first term,” read part of her statement.
She claimed that the second in command intimidated and scared away investors and technocrats who wanted to elevate the economy of the country.
She added that the second in command promised them dire consequences if they persisted, further adding that the DP told them that he was the one in the driving seat and not President Uhuru Kenyatta, who is drinking.
Joyce recalled a time when DP Ruto went to her house for house warming where he took a lot of money from her meant for development, adding that that is why Bomet County has been lagging behind in utilization of National Government Affirmative Action Funds (NGAAF).
She lamented that other Woman Representatives like Gladys Wanga and Boss Sholei are currently doing good jobs with NGAAF while she is still funding DP Ruto’s wet dream.
The legislature challenged the second in command to point any development in South Rift apart from his unfulfilled promises to the residents that they will make millions of money.
Joyce Korir’s statement comes two days after President Uhuru Kenyatta admitted that he had made more developments in his second term than in his first term because he dropped some thieves.
While addressing the Ukambani leader on Monday 14 June 2021 at State House, the President reportedly said that some people stole public funds and became millionaires overnight, yet they cannot explain how they acquired their wealth.
