Allies of Deputy President William Ruto have been told to be very cautious while commenting on 'Pandora Papers', an investigation report which revealed President Uhuru Kenyatta's family has stashed billions in offshore accounts.

The expose which has caused a storm in the country showed Uhuru, his mother Mama Ngina Kenyatta, and his siblings Muhoho, Nyokabi and Kristina operate a number of companies and foundations overseas worth billions.

Without providing evidence that the wealth the Kenyattas have kept in secret accounts is proceeds of fraud, a section of Tangatanga leaders have claimed it was obtained through plundering state coffers.

They include Senators Susan Kihika (Nakuru), Aaron Cheruiyot (Kericho) and MPs Kimani Ichung'wa (Kikuyu), Alice Wahome (Kandara), Ndindi Nyoro (Kiharu), among others.

"When you preach water and drink wine! This guy lectured us day in & day out on corruption yet it’s the only thing he leads from the front on!" Senator Kihika tweeted.

Kiigen Koech, a youthful politician from Nandi has warned Ruto's allies against making unsubstantiated claims about the expose noting they could put their boss in trouble through their utterances.

"Tanga Tanga politicians should be careful about the way they choose to react to #Client13173 #PandoraPapers. Why do Tanga Tanga MPs have a tendency of trying to get their leader in trouble! People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones," said the 2017 Dagoretti North parliamentary seat candidate.

Uhuru has acknowledged that his family operate offshore accounts and they were ready to give more information about the same as a way of promoting financial transparency.
