Fresh Scandalous Details behind Fundraising that caused Ruto to Embarrass Kang’ata

Few weeks ago, DP Ruto badly embarrassed Murang’a senator Irungu Kanga'ta in public for donating only Ksh 40,000 and demanded he adds it up to Ksh 100,000.

DP Ruto remained clear that Kang'ata cannot be governor if he continued giving small money like Ksh 40,000 to his people as that cannot help.

Whether through bad luck or naivety, Kang’ata got himself mixed up in a complicated web of money trail which led to the Deputy President dressing him down in public in his own home county recently.

Fresh details are now emerging about the organiser of the fundraiser Mr. Edward Muriu, who exactly he is to DP Ruto, and why it was unthinkable to the DP for anyone to contribute only Sh40,000.

For a while now, it has been rumoured that Ruto makes sure his money does rounds in circles despite the figure he cuts in public of a generous wealthy leader.

Early this month, Ruto attended a funds drive at Gatunyu Grounds in Murang’a County. He helped launch the Wakili Edward Muriu Pesa Mfukoni Bursary Fund, a Shs100-Million kitty that will support needy children in schools. This is the initiative of Edward Muriu, the Gatanga constituency parliamentary seat aspirant on a United Democratic Alliance party ticket.

However, more necessary to note is that Muriu is the Legal Affairs Secretary for UDA. Even more interesting is that, Muriu has carried out numerous “Hustlers Empowerment Tours” in Gatanga targeting Traders, Women Groups and Boda Boda Sacco with his motto “Wendani ukirite Gutonga.”, and continues to do so.

Bearing all this in mind, it would appear that technically, the fundraising was for UDA in general, and for DP William Ruto in particular.

Whether Kang’ata knew this interconnection of facts, or innocently stumbled into a well arranged set piece remains a mystery.
