After Pandora Papers Revelations About Uhuru's Offshore Wealth, Kenyans Now Told About Ruto

Deputy President William Ruto's allies should not be heard bashing President Uhuru Kenyatta over claims of stashing billions of shillings abroad, controversial city lawyer Donald Kipkorir has said.

This follows a revelation dubbed 'Pandora Papers', which alleges that Uhuru's family is among the families associated with world rulers with questionable vast investments abroad.

According to The Guardian, Uhuru's family has stashed $30 million worth of property abroad, including a property in London, even as the lawyer says that such wealth is justifiable.

For him, this is a family that has been operation for over 60 years, and that Ruto and his camp shouldn't be heard speaking, alleging that it's own members have amassed billions in less than 8 years.

"uda-land is in ecstasy because #PandoraPapers has exposed measly us$30m acquired over 60 Years. uda never learns even after burning its fingers in the GSU Saga. In less than 8 Years, uda Principals have acquired Billions and use proxies to keep them. We need full disclosure of all," he says in a tweet.

His remarks seem to target Ruto himself, who has been under pressure to explain how he became so rich in such a short time, to an extent of owning vast properties and several helicopters.

Ruto, who has also been repeatedly accused of involvement in graft, has denied such, saying that what he has is the product of his own hard work, including his several business ventures.

Apart from the said offshore wealth, Uhuru has for a long time been battling claims of holding onto huge tracts of land allegedly acquired when his dad, founding father Jomo Kenyatta, was in power.
