“ Numerous sympathizers of President Uhuru went out of their way to collect this plutocrat and bring Ruto on board. ” Your conjecture is as good as mine for a man who says Ksh7 billion only, but it was in the billions.

He also indicted the DP of trying to pull the same trick when he was a member of the Orange Democratic Movement( ODM) led by former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.

“ These are payment demands that he made not only on TNA at the time but also on ODM preliminarily. ”
“ It was better several times over to work with an honest Raila who was willing to work with him without demanding anything in Government and support him in Parliament than with a Ruto who blackmailed the President at every turn, ” he added.
He explained that the payment was made so that the DP could support Uhuru’s shot to come the country’s fourth President.
Tuju preliminarily stated that the DP demanded specific ministries if they won the election, and that, contrary to what he portrays in public, Ruto sees politics as a business.
