Ngunyi went on to detail that the chief of staff and head of public service at the time enjoyed a lavishly appointed restroom, complete with a red-carpeted floor and gold-colored taps.

He questioned why Ruto, as the Deputy President, was not given access to these facilities.

Ngunyi, a former insider to President Uhuru Kenyatta’s administration, further expressed his views on Ruto’s surprising rise to the presidency, even without the support of his former boss.

“Lakini Mutahi Ngunyi is such a LIAR. No wonder he lied to Uhuru Kenyatta effortlessly. State House has no Golden taps wacha Uwongo. On the Washrooms you are LYING too. Anyway, we defeated you despite your lies and 5th Estate. There is space for Facts and truth. Only,”

Itumbi said.

“The Chief of Staff did NOT even have an office in the main building. Only the Head of Public Service. And there was no reserved washroom for him. Uwongo tu Mutahi Ngunyi…these kind of lies have no space hapa,”

Mutahi Ngunyi’s allegations come shortly after he surprised many by switching allegiance from former president Uhuru Kenyatta to president Ruto.
