Friday, March 18, 2022 – Deputy President William Ruto has sensationally claimed that he is the one who initiated major projects under the Jubilee Government.
Speaking to the Kenya Private Sector Alliance on Thursday, the Deputy President said that he played a major role in the implementation of the projects launched by the Head of State, especially during the first term of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s regime.
According to him, the 10,000 kilometers of roads and the 8.7 million Kenyans who were connected to the grid would not have been a success without him.
“In the first term I am the person who sat down with then Transport CS Michael Kamau and Petroleum CAS Engineer John Mosonik and it is on my table in Karen that we changed the building code and that is how we have delivered the 10, 000 kilometers (of roads),”
“It was on my table in Karen that we sat down with Charles Keter and Engineer Kamau that we worked on changing the model of connection of electricity and that is why today we have 8.7 million Kenyans connected to electricity,” William Ruto said.
The UDA presidential flag bearer who has since fallen out with his boss further revealed that he was the one behind the streamlining of major reforms at the Ministry of Health that made it possible for NHIF to move from KSh 900 million to KSh 3.3 billion.
“It was on my table that I sat down with Governor Muhamud Ali who was the then chairman of NHIF that we worked on changing the contributions to NHIF that made it possible for us to move from KSh 900 million to KSh 3.3 billion,” he said.
The second in command, however, said the projects were stalled after their re-election in 2017 following the famous 2018 handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga.
