Police funds were diverted to BBI, Azimio 'project' - Gachagua

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua now claims former President Uhuru Kenyatta's authorities diverted police finances to the failed constitutional evaluate method and to fund Raila Odinga's presidential bid.

Speaking Sunday on a neighborhood Tv station, the DP claimed Uhuru's regime diverted Sh200 billion on the Interior Ministry to 'venture Azimio' and Sh50 billion at the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).

"Billions of shillings intended for the police have been diverted at Interior for venture Azimio. Billions of shillings intended for police operations and safety intelligence turned into diverted for BBI. That is the sort of factor we do now no longer need again,” Gachagua stated.

The Kenya Kwanza camp campaigned in opposition to Raila via way of means of mounting a sustained onslaught in opposition to the ODM birthday birthday celebration chief via way of means of describing him as a "kingdom venture".

The Supreme Court in March declared the BBI unconstitutional, halting Uhuru's bid to make modifications to the Constitution which his critics stated turned into an try and keep stranglehold on power.

"That Sh250 billion that's sufficient cash for the Hustler Fund for 5 years. We need to apply cash on manufacturing. Give the hustlers 50 billion for them to trade,” Gachagua stated.

Gachagua stated below President William Ruto's reign, cash will now no longer be spent on politics and needless initiatives.

The DP highlighted that the Kenya Kwanza authorities will use cash on manufacturing and matters that are useful to citizens.

He tore into Uhuru’s venture of renovating Uhuru Gardens and organising the Uhuru Gardens Museum.

"You noticed them setting up museums, there's already a country wide museum why do you need to spend Sh 25 billion setting up a museum whilst a rustic is struggling,”Gachagua asked.

Speaking throughout the presidential debate in July, President William Ruto blasted his boss for spending billions of shillings to renovate Uhuru Gardens.

He stated that initiatives which have been now no longer budgeted for had wolfed up Sh100 billion and spiraled the country's borrowing.

"There are too many initiatives that aren't budgeted for. For example, Uhuru Gardens Museum, you do not see it everywhere in authorities budgets however its being built. Uhuru Gardens Museum turned into now no longer budgeted for. We have spent near sh 15 billion on that venture,” Ruto stated.
