    Huyu waziri Ruto alikuwa anapinga mapendekezo ya katiba ya Mwai. Alikuwa No Campaign. Wakati Mwai Kibaki alikuwa YES Campaign

    Kuu hili jukwaa si la mambo ya kimataifa, ipeleke kwenye mataifa. Ruto Kapigwa chini kweli ila hisi siasa za Kenya huwezi zielewa vizuri. Huwa anabifu sana na Odinga ila Kwa kibaki hawapambani sana. Anakesi ya rushwa kwamba aliuza sehemu ya msitu wa ngong' kwa Kenya pipeline. Ila kuna vigogo kibao kwenye kashfa hii. Ni miaka kadhaa ilopita. But he is a survivor!

    Ruto out of Cabinet to face fraud charges


    [​IMG]

    Eldoret North MP William Ruto (pictured) was on Tuesday suspended from Cabinet as minister for Higher Education, Science and Technology pending the hearing and determination of a Sh272 million fraud case against him.

    Eldoret North MP William Ruto was on Tuesday suspended from Cabinet as minister for Higher Education, Science and Technology pending the hearing and determination of a Sh272 million fraud case against him.

    President Kibaki made the announcement Tuesday evening, ending days of speculation over the fate of the minister, who only four days ago swore not to resign from Cabinet over the case.

    The President used the opportunity to reshuffle assistant ministers.

    He should stand trial

    Mr Ruto had gone to the Constitutional Court to challenge his prosecution over a land deal and the court last week ruled he should stand trial.

    A dispatch from State House on Tuesday said: "Following consultations with the Rt Hon Prime Minister, His Excellency the President has stood aside Hon William S Ruto from office of minister with immediate effect."

    Prof Hellen Sambili, the East African Community minister, was appointed to act as minister for Higher Education, putting her in charge of two dockets for the time being.

    A source at the Attorney-General's chambers told the Daily Nation that Mr Amos Wako had advised Mr Odinga and the President that the law required Mr Ruto's suspension until the fraud case against him is determined.

    On Monday, Mr Wako held what one Office of the President official described as a lengthy meeting with the President at State House Nairobi, starting at around 5pm.

    Earlier, he had met Mr Odinga, according to the official. And on Tuesday, President Kibaki received his co-principal at his Harambee House Office at 3pm and the two were holed up in a meeting for about an hour and a half.

    Wanjiru back in ministry

    According to the National Accord, Mr Kibaki cannot sack a minister from the Orange side of the government without Mr Odinga's consent.

    On Sunday, a top government official had told the Daily Nation that the President was very reluctant to be seen to act in defiance of the law, meaning that the moment the Court of Appeal committed Mr Ruto to stand trial, his goose was more or less cooked.

    In Tuesday's minor reshuffle, the President brought back Bishop Margaret Wanjiru, who has just successfully defended her Starehe seat, reappointing her Housing assistant minister.

    Embakasi MP Ferdinand Waititu is now assistant minister in the ministry of Water and Irrigation replacing, Laikipia East MP Mwangi Kiujuri who has been moved to the ministry of Public Works in the same capacity.

    Kilome MP Harun Mwau and Bomachoge MP Simon Ogari swapped ministries. Mr Mwau will now be the new Assistant minister for Trade, a position previously held by Mr Ogari, who now takes over as the Assistant minister for Transport.

    Mr Ruto's ministerial position became legally untenable last Friday after the constitutional court's ruling.

    Section 62 of the Anti-corruption and Economic Crimes Act stipulates that "a public officer who is charged with corruption or economic crime shall be suspended at half pay, with effect from the date of the charge".

    Such a suspended public officer continues to receive the full amount of any allowances, says the law.

    The minister's ministerial career was thrown into a spin when the panel of three judges dismissed a petition he filed in 2005 seeking to stop court proceedings against him claiming that his rights had been infringed.

    there is something you guys are missing. the dude has NOT! been fired. he has simply been suspended because he has a corruption case pending in court. according to the new law of the land, ruto should be suspended and his pay slashed. that is what kibaki and raila have done which is following the law. now wether they are playing political games or not that is secondary to the fact that they are following the law. whether ruto is admitted back into the government or not will be determined by the courts verdict on his corruption charges.

    this is a very good example of the new kenya, there are new great laws governing the country and the laws are being adhered to. these are baby steps but they are baby steps towards the right direction of fighting impunity. i am coutiusly hopeful

    Court file hitch halts Ruto case


    [​IMG]

    Suspended Higher Education minister William Ruto (right) and his co- accused Joshua Kulei (centre) and Baringo Central MP Sammy Mwaita (left) in court October 26, 2010. The case was adjourned to 2.30p.m. after a hitch involving his court file.

    A Sh96 million criminal case against suspended Higher Education minister William Ruto failed to proceed due to a hitch involving the court file.
    The file presented before the chief magistrates court did not have all the documents on it forcing Mr Gilbert Mutembei to adjourn the matter.

    Mr Ruto and his co-accused had come to court following an order by the high court on October 15 directing the case be taken to chief magistrates court for the purposes of taking a hearing date.

    However, the magistrate could not allocate any dates as the order giving him directions was missing on court file before him.

    And following this, he directed Mr Ruto’s lawyer Katwa Kigen to get the order from the High Court and bring it to the chief magistrates court in the afternoon.

    Mr Ruto and four other persons were appearing in court Tuesday in relation to a case filed against them in 2004 in which KPC lost more than Sh272 million in the sale of the plot which was part of Ngong Forest.

    Mr Ruto was charged with receiving Sh9.9 million, saying he was in a position to sell the land, belonging to the ministry of Environment and Natural Resources.

    He is alleged to have been paid another Sh57.8 million and Sh28 million for land in the same forest.

    In the dismissed petition, however, Mr Ruto and his co-accused filed a constitutional reference after they were charged before the Chief magistrate court, Nairobi. Chief Justice Evan Gicheru had to appoint a bench to hear the case.

    The constitutional application was recently concluded and Mr Ruto ordered to face criminal trial. He was subsequently suspended from Cabinet.

    Mr Ruto came to court at 9 am and sat through other court proceedings going on before the magistrate.

    The courtroom was packed with Mr Ruto’s supporters and media.

    Among those who showed up in court were MPs: Mithika Linturi, David Koech, Charles Keter and Joshua Kutuny.

    Ruto case to be heard next year


    [​IMG]

    Updated 3 hr(s) 9 min(s) ago
    By Judy Ogutu


    The fraud case against suspended Higher Education Minister William Ruto and seven others has been set for hearing on January 24.

    The case will be heard for 12 days before Nairobi Chief Magistrate, Mr Gilbert Mutembei. The first four days will be January 24 to 27.

    Senior State counsel,Vincent Wohoro told the court the State has lined up 24 witnesses to give evidence.

    The case was on Tuesday morning pushed to afternoon after it emerged that the file that had been placed before Mutembei did not have High Court orders directing him to carry on with the case.

    Mutembei said it would be unprocedural to continue with the matter that did not bear High Court order.

    On October 15, High Court Judges Jeanne Gacheche, Leonard Njagi and Roselyn Wendoh dismissed a constitutional case filed by Ruto and directed the case to proceed before the magistrate's court.

    Ruto is charged alongside businessman Joshua Kulei, Baringo Central MP Sammy Mwaita, Berke Commercial Agencies, Priority Limited, Celtic Multi-Systems Limited and Somog Limited.

    He is alleged to have fraudulently obtained Sh96 million from Kenya Pipeline Company claiming that he was in a position to sell 1.745 hectares of land belonging to the Ministry of Natural Resources situated in Ngong Forest.

    The suspended minister allegedly received Sh9.9 million in 2001. He is alleged to have further received another Sh57.8 million for the sale of two parcels of land and another Sh28 million for a parcel of land in the same forest.

    Mwaita is charged with three counts of abuse of office after he allegedly consented to the transfer of the land before it was degazetted.

    They were charged in 2004 and the case has never commenced because the constitutional court stopped it. KPC lost Sh272million in the land transaction.
