Deputy President William Ruto has sought to rubbish the narrative that he is among the people with the biggest pieces of land in the country.
Ruto says that he knows Azimio politicians who have up to 100,000 acres of land, wondering why he should be condemned over his 2,500 acres
“Instead of intimidating me over my legally acquired property, let them also tell us how they acquired their over 100,000 acres of land in the Coast region. I have documents showing how I got my land in the region and let them also show Kenyans the receipts of their land in the region,” he said in Taita Taveta on Wednesday, as is quoted by The Standard.
He was responding to Azimio La Umoja presidential candidate Raila Odinga, who recently revealed plans to repossess the land in Taita Taveta County in the event that he becomes President.
Ruto noted that the land was legally acquired, noting that he has all the documents showing that he acquired it from former MP Basil Criticos.
Criticos has also since confirmed selling the land to the DP, even as Raila and his troops hold that something is not in order and the land should be taken away from the DP.
