Ruto’s house upgrade an insult to taxpayers

Sunday June 30 2013

The disclosure by the Sunday Nation that Deputy President William Ruto’s official residence is set to undergo Sh100 million renovation (it has hardly been occupied) at this difficult economic period is an insult to the Kenyan taxpayer.

It is becoming increasingly clear that the government’s priorities are upside down as prudent management of the scarce national resources has been relegated to the periphery.

No country can develop when its national leadership is preaching water and taking wine. The officials are not walking the talk and leading from the front when it comes to prudent and sensitive  utilisation of the scarce national resources.
