Former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka has said Deputy President William Ruto should ensure that all public funds are accounted for. 

The Wiper leader said the country is losing billions of shillings, public funds through graft.  

Kalonzo spoke at the burial of Murang'a Senator Irungu Kang’ata’s mother in Kiharu Constituency, Murang'a County on Monday.

He challenged Ruto, who is considered a front-runner in the race to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta, to stand firm as far as corruption in his office is concerned. 

The Ukambani political kingpin said there is need to deal with corruption with the seriousness it deserves before it is too late. 

Kalonzo also challenged Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen to cross check his facts before making any allegations in public whenever a scandal is raised. 

“I wanted to also tell Mr. Deputy President one thing. I am happy you are saying there is no coin that was stolen. But if indeed, I challenge my learned brother Murkomen to check on that,” said Kalonzo.

The alleged loss of Sh21 billion allocated to Arror and Kimwarer dams has continued to elicit mixed reactions from different factions. 

African Union High Representative on Infrastructure and Development Raila Odinga has also told Ruto to come clean over the project. 

Ruto has, however, refused to change tune amid massive pressure from leaders and the general public on his position about the billions allegedly lost to the two projects.
