Kikuyu Member of Parliament Kimani Ichung'wah is now questioning the source of wealth of former Jubilee Party Vice Chairman David Murathe.

Speaking during a political show on KTN, the MP wondered how Murathe had become wealthy just a few years after he declared bankruptcy.

"There are allegations of what he has been doing since he declared bankruptcy some years back. There are also allegations of him changing cars and suits that match on a daily basis and what he has been doing with Chinese contractors in this town," said Ichung'wah during The Big Story live show.

This is not the first time Ichung'wah has raised concerns over the lifestyle of his former party chief who is said to be a close ally of President Uhuru Kenyatta.

In a tweet after Murathe resigned from his powerful post on Sunday, the MP claimed the ex-MP is a broker of the contracts awarded to Chinese contractors to undertake various projects in the country.

Ichung'wah, however, did not substantiate how Murathe has been benefitting from the said contracts.

"#MuratheResigns and claims he can’t be gagged. How can a vomiting broker with a full stomach be gagged? The Chinese contractors are still in town! Ulevi mbaya," he posted.

"@DMurathe who has gagged you save for your ulevi illusions? Go carry on with your brokerage trade, there nobody gags you save for your greed! #walevinetwork," Ichung'wah added.

Murathe has been on the receiving end from Deputy President William Ruto's allies since he launched an attack on the DP over his presidential bid.

He argues Ruto should head to retirement together with Uhuru in 2022 having served for two consecutive terms.
