Ruto demands Sh10m bribe from governors, says Barchok

Bomet Governor Hillary Barchok (pictured above) has revealed that Deputy President William Ruto demands Sh10 million from every governor accompanying him in the premature campaigns.

Barchok said he fell out with Ruto after he refused to give him the money.

The governor has been missing from the rallies despite coming from Ruto’s stronghold.

For the last two years, Ruto, who is planning to contest for the presidency in 2022, has held hundreds of rallies across the country to popularise his bid.

Several Rift valley governors led by Turkana Governor, Josephat Nanok, have been accompanying the DP to those rallies.

Barchok said Ruto is preaching the bottom-up economic model to uplift standards of common Mwananchi but he was doing things that are anti-devolution, like demanding money from governors.

“I didn’t attend DP Ruto’s Chebilat rally because of his undying thirst from governors. Taking Sh10 million every month to Nairobi (Karen) is not bottom-up and it is totally against tenets of devolution,” Barchok told journalists on Tuesday.
