Deputy President has been linked to a Mega scandal estimated to be worth Ksh 28B.The cash was to be used in putting up a new referral hospital in Eldoret and upgrade the famous Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital.
This was revealed by a whistle blower by the name Herbet Ojwang who appeared before the National
Assembly Public Investments Committee chaired by Adan Keynan.The Businessman who looked composed and assured of what he was talking about emptied more than we could imagine.
Ojwang was the one who came up with the idea of upgrading the Moi Teaching and referral hospital but the plan was later hijacked by the Deputy President William Ruto.
Initially the tender was awarded to a Chinese Company and it was estimated to cost Ksh 11B but it was later cancelled and awarded to companies friendly to Ruto.
This is not the first time the deputy president finds himself in this situation;in 2012 he was linked to the maize scandal in which involved more than Ksh 2 billion.He was forced to step down as the Agriculture minister.
