"Tell Us How Much You've Saved" Ex-CS Eugene Wamalwa Dares Ruto on His Bold Move 3 Months in Office

Former Defence Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa has dared President William Ruto to tell Kenyans the amount of money he had saved since he assumed power three months ago, owing to his move of doing away with subsidies.

Speaking on Wednesday during the first anniversary of the Democratic Action Party of Kenya (DAP-K), Wamalwa defended Former President Uhuru Kenyatta's government for the subsidies, saying that they were cushioning Kenyans from the high cost of living.

"We must cushion Kenyans from high cost of living, any responsible government would do what is right to cushion its citizens, and the Kenya Kwanza government removed these subsidies."

"There was some reasoning on why these subsidies were provided on common products. How much have you saved and where has this money gone," said Wamalwa further claiming that Ruto owes the country explanation.

Ruto did away with the subsidies on fuel and maize flour, claiming that the money was benefiting a few, a move that was supported by a number of leaders across the country and those allied to the Kenya Kwanza Camp.

The Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance in their last week's rally at Kamukunji Grounds asked Ruto to return the subsidies, saying that Kenyans were hurting on high cost of living.
