Nandi Hills MP Alfred Keter now claims Kalenjin CEOs and Parastatal Chiefs facing graft charges were used as conduits to loot public funds.
Speaking during a Radio Interview with vernacular station Chamgei FM, Keter said he has evidence that some senior politicians have been forcing parastatal chiefs to do unscrupulous activities to finance Deputy President William Ruto’s 2022 presidential campaign.
“I have evidence that some of these Kalenjin CEOs and heads of parastatals were used to loot funds. One of them who was sacked, confessed to me that he was shown the door because he refused to play ball,”said Keter.
The vocal legislator said those facing graft charges should not use the community as a shield.
“Suspects facing corruption charges should carry their own cross and not hide behind the community,”said Keter.
The lawmaker lauded President Uhuru Kenyatta’s spirited efforts in the war against corruption and urged the government not relent in fight against graft.
He said billions meant for development have been lost through graft adding that those responsible must be held accountable.
