Some bloggers have made intriguing claims about Ruto's appointment as a close ally to the KRA board, and the internet is buzzing.
The claims that Kenyan President William Ruto altered the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) by adding businesswoman Mary Wambui to its Board of Directors, as widely circulated on various social media platforms, are false and deceptive.
Wambui, one of the primary persons alleged to have sponsored former President Uhuru Kenyatta's re-election in 2017, was reportedly honored by Deputy President William Ruto on Saturday, November 26, according to several stories that were extensively posted on Twitter and Facebook pages.
Sources, though, say the data is inaccurate and tinged with malice.
Wambui is not listed as a board member on the KRA's official website.
Wambui gained notoriety after fleeing DCI investigators who attempted to arrest her at the Weston Hotel, which Ruto owns.
It's also been stated that she's involved in a $2.2 billion KRA scam related to tax evasion.
Recently, we've seen some fascinating changes on social media that are all targeted against the administration led by Ruto.
