Confusion rocked Meru County’s Tigania West after a school donation made by Deputy President William Ruto was repossessed by the company and taken back to Nairobi.
This is after a school bus donated to Kianjai Girls secondary school during his tour of Meru County was taken back by the assembling company.
Reports indicate that angry area residents condemned the move stating that it was a canning move to wood wink them.
The school bus valued at Ksh.3.5 Million was presented by the DP at a ceremony held on March 6th, 2021 to the school.
Reports further indicate that the school bus was repossessed and taken to another school for yet another presentation.
In his defense and cover up to the new development, Tigania West Member of Parliament John Mutunga said that the vehicle was taken back by the assembling company so that it could be completed.
Mutunga further claimed that the company in question was overrun by the DP’s command and influence and had to release the vehicle for the official handover ceremony even though it was yet to be completed.
“The bus was yet to be completely assembled due to the emergence of COVID-19. The company allowed us to use it for Ruto’s official function then return it so that it could be completed,” said Mutunga.
Details further indicate that another group in the area identified as Tigania Eye claimed the vehicle, which was fully funded by the constituency’s development fund was repossessed as it was yet to be paid for fully.
