Deputy President William Ruto castigated after hitting out at state over fuel hike.

MP Peter Kaluma of the Orange Democrat Movement (ODM) has called Ruto an hypocrite and through a newspaper article revealed that DP supported tax increase on petroleum products which has caused the recent price hike on fuel.

In the article Ruto said the eight per cent tax on petroleum products was going to bring equity and development. And told those who were criticising Jubilee government over the cost of living their noises would not divert the Government's development agenda.

Recently Ruto asked the Ministry of Energy to work with relevant agencies and the Parliamentary Committees to address the step rise in fuel prices.

The DP said that the fuel price increase will translate to a general rise in the cost of living at a time when the country is struggling with Covid-19 pandemic.

"We must team up and manage this situation that threatens to go out of hand," said Ruto.
