A section of the clergy in Uasin Gishu want former Finance Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich to name his accomplices in government who benefited from the billions lost in the Arror and Kimwarer dams’ scandal.
Eldoret Anglican Church Diocese Bishop Dr. Christopher Rutto while speaking at ACK St. Mathews church after launching this year’s Missions activity week said that the amount of money involved in the scandal can’t disappear without the knowledge of senior people in government hence Rotich shouldn’t be the sacrificial lamb.
“If indeed Rotich ate the Arror and Kimwarer dam projects money with others, he should come out and name them however mighty they are and not accept to die alone,” said the Bishop.
Bishop Rutto however maintained that corruption must be fought from all angles, but in an orderly and transparent manner in order not to create anxiety among Kenyans. “Where millions of taxpayers’ money is stolen, it must be brought out in public and those involved made to face the full force of the law,” he said.
The clergyman however asked Kenyans to allow courts do their work. “We pray that justice will be done to all those suspected to have been involved in the Arror and Kimwarer scandal.”
Bishop Rutto also asked the Jubilee government to stop wrangling and put its house in order and serve the people of Kenya as they promised, “they must deliver what they promised, during the campaigns their slogan was ‘tuko pamoja’ where has that unity gone?” he posed.
On the controversial division of revenue bill between the National Assembly and the Senate, Bishop Rutto said the differences should be resolved amicably so that services at the county level do not suffer.
