Questions after Ruto claimed that he had been awarded 2500 acres of land

Deputy President William Ruto has come out clean to clear the controversy surrounding his 2,536 acres land parcel in Taita Taveta.

Actually this is not the first time that DP Ruto has been tied to a land grabbing crime and previously he got nicknamed 'ARAP MASHAMBA'.

Ruto has claimed that he acquired the land rightfully, this was after being gifted by the former Taveta Mp Basil Croticos.

DP Ruto grows maize and rears cattle at the farm and has previously been accused of diverting water meant for the residents forcing hundreds of households to go without the commodity.

His manager, Arie Dempers, has also been accused of harassing neighbours and workers at the farm.

Who can just wake up and award you 2,500 acres of land? I think Ruto should provide the legal documents linked to the land parcel to prove his ownership to the land or else surrender the land parcel.
