Nandi Hills MP Alfred Keter has hit out at the Deputy President William Ruto for branding himself a hustler yet he is not, he says.
Through his official Facebook page, Keter said that despite Ruto being born as a hustler, he doesn't represent the common interests of Kenyans.
"It’s true William Ruto was born as a hustler just like 99.99% of Kenyans but is he a hustler today, and does he protect the interest of the hustler?" posed Keter.
The Nandi Hills legislator stated that Ruto was deeply involved in the YK92 which caused massive inflation due to the printing of the infamous Sh500 note.
He further said that in 2004, he was charged for stealing Ngong Forest Land and was released after word went round that he bribed a key witness with a parastatal appointment when he was the CS for Agriculture under the Grand Coalition government.
"After the 2007/2008 PEV, he miraculously acquired 100 acres of Muteshi’s land and the High Court forced him to return it. From 2013-2017, he 'hustled' in all GOK tenders above 500 Million in GDC, Kenya Pipeline, KPLC, NCPB, fertilizers, Ketraco, Kimwarer & Itare dams name it and he is still acquiring more," he added.
Keter opined that this is akin to "plundering". If this plunder is what is called hustling, then we need to change the dictionary meaning of hustling."
