Monday May 11, 2020 – Former Kakamega Senator, Boni Khalwale, dished out thousands of Kenya shillings in the streets of Kakamega, money he claimed had been sent directly to him by Deputy President William Ruto.
Addressing County residents, the outspoken politician disclosed that the DP had sent him Ksh 100,000.
He further noted that the money was aimed at easing the effects of severe flooding on vulnerable families in Kakamega.
After the announcement, the ex-Senator personally proceeded to distribute the money to the public.
“People who have been affected here, I will give you the money [the DP] sent to my account and I withdrew it this morning. “
“Ruto gave me Ksh 100,000 to bring to you for your use,” stated Khalwale before the distribution.
During the address, Khalwale also hit out at Kakamega Governor, Wycliffe Oparanya, who he accused of abandoning the already suffering residents.
“I respect Oparanya but my respect is subsiding because he refused to help you.”
“I also respect Uhuru [President Uhuru Kenyatta] but the respects diminishes when he refuses to help you,” he stated while urging the residents to vote for Ruto as the next President in 2022.
He further expressed interest in running for the gubernatorial seat after he lost the 2017 race to the incumbent, Oparanya, whose two terms end in 2022.
