Charge any of my staff involved in KSh 39 billion fraud – DP Ruto to IG Mutyambai

DP William Ruto has written to Inspector General of Police Hilary Mutyambai asking him to charge any of his staff who will be implicated in the fake KSh 39 billion arms deal.

Through his Chief of Staff, Ken Osinde, Ruto said any of his staff found culpable should face the law.

“Any officer in our establishment who will be found culpable should be arraigned in court the soonest possible,” Osinde said in the letter dated February 19, addressed to the Inspector General of Police.

This follows reports that part of the meetings surrounding the fake KSh 39.5 billion arms deal took place in the DP’s office.

Former Sports CS Rashid Echesa has since been charged alongside three individuals, for obtaining KSh 11.5 million from the Polish military arms dealers.

Echesa and his co-accused are accused of duping the arms dealers that they were in a position to facilitate the award of a Sh39 billion military equipment tender.

Echesa and his co-accused were freed on a KSh1 million cash bail each on Monday, January 17 after denying charges preferred by the DCI.

In the letter, the second-in-command has also asked Mutyambai to extend the investigations to the Department of Immigration to establish the visa clearance issued to the foreign investors.

DCI Detectives have since interrogated staff at the DP’s office as part of probe into the fake a deal that has provided fodder to DP’s political detractors.
