The so vocal Jubilee vice chairperson David Murathe tells EACC to investigate the Deputy President William Ruto over the Kemsa saga.
Murathe on Friday maintained that Ruto should be summoned to give evidence on the actions of his close partners whom he alleged were involved in Kemsa tenders through a company called Kilig.
The former Gatanga MP was speaking after spending close to four hours with officers from EACC who are investigating procurement irregularities at Kemsa.
Murathe also wants the anti-graft body to summon former senators Boni Khalwale (Kakamega), Johnston Muthama (Machakos), blogger Robbert Alai and former television host Tony Gachoka to shed light on what they now about the alleged Kemsa fraud.
He said he was summoned to provide more information on the basis of his recent assertions during an interview with Citizen TV where he dragged Ruto’s name into the tender scandal.
Ruto has however dismissed the allegations.
“In that interview I said I have certain evidence of persons associated with DP who were linked with this famous company called Kilig. I know Wilbroad who is a partner in Kilig with Mr. Zu a Chinese partner and I know at some point when they were unable to secure financing for importation of the kits and they transferred there shareholding to persons who are known partners to Deputy President,” Murathe said.
“So I came here to present that evidence today and I am expecting very soon that they are also will be calling the DP to make his statement in regards to what he knows about the association with his partners with Kilig.”
The former Gatanga MP arrived at Madison House at exactly 2.03 pm where he was being grilled by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commision’s officers.
Murathe was claimed to be a bank signatory of Kilig Limited, he however disowned the firm during a television interview with a local station.
