Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung’wa on Monday [May 25] warned residents against fake poisonous donations.
According to Ichung’wa, there is an “evil cabal that is distributing fake, poisonous relief food to residents of Gikambura in the name of William Ruto Foundation.”
Ichung’wa said that a family in Gikambura is being treated at a local hospital after consuming sugar branded “William Ruto foundation”
“These are NOT our food stuffs and we are not distributing anything openly and on vehicles on roads or stadiums and even the FAKE branding and items are NOT anything close to what we are distributing,” the lawmaker wrote on his Facebook page.
The William Ruto Foundation has come out to distance itself from the distribution of the said food that has affected the family, insinuating that his political detractors are responsible for the ordeal.
Through a statement from his Communications Secretary David Mugonyi, DP Ruto said that “it is clear those behind the distribution of the contaminated food are engaging in political thuggery for other reasons.”
“It is revolting, despicable, callous and cruel to play with the health and lives of innocent human beings to score political points,” read the statement.
