Ruto's camp received a major blow after the managing director for Equity bank, Gerald Warui, denied claims that they were associated with lending 15 billion Kenyan shillings loan to Turkish suspected terrorist Harun Aydin after Ruto's intervention. He said this after being summoned in parliament on Wednesday to clarify those claims.
Ruto's allies however intervened to save Dp Ruto's reputation by clarifying that Ruto may have spoken to senior personnel in the bank before coming to an agreement. It was also noted that Aydin did not have an account with Equity and therefore the loan would be released through an investment company in Uganda that was concerned with investment in Vaccine industry in Uganda. This is after Ruto claimed that he was helping in the set up of Vaccine industry that will be beneficial to East Africa.
These claims have led to the criticism of Dp Ruto who led gained momentum politically. Being associated with money laundering claims have really tarnished his reputation and he may lose it if he does not intervene on time.
