Following president William Ruto’s two-day tour in the counties of Homa Bay, Kisumu and Siaya, it’s now being alleged that this entire visit was just but a well-calculated and laid-down strategy to gain access to the national pension fund.
Constitutional lawyer Ekuru Aukot, famous for not only having chaired the Committee of Experts behind the 2010 Constitution but also having taken part in its actual drafting, took to Twitter to claim that the real reason behind President William Ruto’s tour of Nyanza region is tied to a hideous financial scheme.
Ekuru said Ruto’s proposed housing scheme in Nyanza is suspicious and resembles a plan aimed at helping him gain access to the national pension fund, proceeds which will be used to enrich politically connected individuals. His tweet read
Dr. Ekuru Aukot
President @WilliamsRuto’s proposed houses in Nyanza is suspect. Sounds like a plan to access the National Pension fund to benefit politically-connected tenderpreneurs. There are no incomes in the rural populations to sustain mortgages of that level.
It’s increasingly becoming apparently clear that #ThePlan of Kenya Kwanza’s government is a very high degree of deception that must be exposed and explained to the people
Dr Ekuru Aukot has been a household name for many years. He was thrust into the limelight when he served as a director in the defunct Committee of Experts that drafted the 2010 Constitution.
The Thirdway Alliance Kenya party leader holds a doctorate degree from the University of Warwick UK and is a sought after expert on law and governance matters in Africa.
Dr Aukot’s knowledge and expertise in constitutional law earned him a spot on the team that drafted the 2010 Constitution, a goal they achieved.
After his role in the writing of Kenya’s 2010 Constitution, Mr Aukot landed a consulted for two US-based corporations as a senior advisor in October 2010.
He was also involved in the formulation of policies to transform Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA) into a modern military force and planning for the government of the new Republic of South Sudan in Juba.
He would later be appointed by President Mwai Kibaki and the then Prime Minister Raila Odinga to chair the seven-member Selection Panel that recruited the first commissioners of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission.
