Narok senator Ledama Ole Kina who is known for his regular scathing attacks on the president and his United Democratic Alliance party made an unexpected statement that not only absolved president William Ruto from blame, but also revealed those who have been pushing him into a corner.
The legislator was speaking while making an appearance on Citizen TV’s morning show Daybreak which was hosted by the station’s presenter Trevor Ombija. Alongside him in the studio were Daadab constituency member of parliament Farah Maalim and Kiambu County governor Kimani Wamatangi. Migori senator Eddy Oketch was also in on the action.
Ledama, while touching on the issue of governors and their impeachment, decried the reality that governors are constantly under ransom by members of county assembly who always demand their allocation of the Ward Fund, failure to which they threaten impeachment. Likewise, he revealed that successive presidents are always blackmailed by MPs who attach passing government bills to CDF, threatening that if they don’t receive CDF, then they won’t pass government bills.
Just a couple of weeks ago President William Ruto explained why he wants the National Government-Constituency Development Fund (NG-CDF) protected and made a constitutional fund.
President Ruto said his proposal to Parliament last week, asking the two houses to make the NG-CDF a constitutional institution is meant to secure development of education in the country.
He said NG-CDF has facilitated the construction of many schools and offered bursaries for tens of thousands of pupils and students across the country.
“The single most important asset we have as a nation is our human capital, and the way to make it better is through education,” he said.
President Ruto spoke this on the 11Th of December during a church service at Wanjohi Primary School in Kipipiri Constituency, Nyandarua County.
He was accompanied by Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, Cabinet Secretaries Zacharia Njeru (Lands) and Rebecca Miano (East African Community, Arid and Semi Arid Lands and Regional Development), Nyandarua Governor Ndirangu Badilisha and a host of MPs led by National Assembly Majority Leader Kimani Ichung’wa.
