Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka has termed Deputy President William Ruto as a coward who is afraid of facing him at the ballot.
Instead, the DP has resorted to name-calling tactics and outright lies.
The former Vice president said that it was unfortunate that the DP allegedly accused him of acquiring his Yatta Land illegally.
Addressing the press after presenting himself for investigation at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) headquarters along Kiambu Road, Kalonzo fired that Dr. Ruto and his allies feared a Kalonzo presidential candidature and had now resorted to unorthodox means to taint his image..
“My political opponents know that my candidature poses a serious threat to their own ambitions, and are clutching at straws because the tides are about to change,” said Kalonzo.
The Wiper leader clarified that he was a religious, honest person and a law-abiding citizen who had nothing to do with land grabbing claims.
“Riding on the spirit of transparency, and in a bid to have this matter publicly examined, and rested, I have presented myself to DCI, an office which has the wherewithal to conduct any criminal investigation in this country, ” he said.
Kalonzo further challenged the DP to present himself before the George Kinoti led DCI and open a file for lifestyle audit to champion integrity and good governance.
“As a public officer entrusted with the responsibility of Kenyans, DP Ruto must open himself up to a lifestyle audit and declare his wealth,” Kalonzo challenged the DP.
Kalonzo said he took the bold step to show Kenyans that he had nothing to hide on how he acquired the Yatta land.
Ruto had on Friday last week alluded that Kalonzo acquired his Yatta land illegally.
