Deputy president while speaking on a radion station yesterday has clarified the issue raised by Billionaire and presidential hopeful Jimi Wanjigi that SGR cost was inflated. According to the second in command,Jimmy Wanjigi is peddling lies about the SGR coating because the government rejected his designs.

He alleged that the project was to cost 55 Billion Kenyan shillings from Mombasa to Malaba. However,William Ruto has denied the claims Jimmy Wanjigi is peddling lies because Jubilee government rejected his designs.

"I know why he is saying that. We rejected it because he had designs around it but we refuse to participate in those designs" Ruto stated.
