Deputy President William Ruto has accused his opponents of using government agencies to cripple his campaigns.
Speaking at the UDA Party National Delegates Conference where he was endorsed as the presidential candidate, Ruto specifically mentioned the EACC, the DCI and KRA as agencies weaponised to scuttle his campaigns.
“They have weaponized the DCI, EACC and the KRA to run political errands. We will make professional the DCI’s office and the KRA for them to run their constitutional and legal duty,” said Ruto.
The UDA NDC was held in Kasarani by UDA leaders as they unveiled Dr. William Ruto as the presidential candidate for the oncoming general elections.
The UDA leader said that in his first day he would appoint an accounting officer for the DCI to allow them to have financial independence and free them from the influence of the government.
“On the first day we will appoint an accounting officer for the DCI so that going forward they will have financial independence and they will never again depend on the Office of the President for them to carry out their constitutional duties,” said the Deputy President.
The presidential candidate for UDA also promises to digitize KRA in order to ensure that it collects all the taxes professionally. This way the country’s economy is set to improve in the coming years.
UDA NDC held at Kasarani had surprise politicians among them Jimi Wanjigi who defected from ODM to Safina Party and Chama Cha Kazi’s Moses Kuria.
