Kenya’s second name is corruption right from the officials who run the country to the common Mwananchi.
Apparently those who run the government have been named in many corruption cases starting with the top leaders like our DP William Ruto who has been mention at least in all cases.
However, the gift keeps on giving. Just recently Kenya’s First Lady Margaret Kenyatta went to the US for a conference on her Beyond Zero campaigns.
The first lady who was to be accompanied with the DP’s wife Rachel Ruto traveled alone due to her (Rachel) being denied a Visa by the USA embassy.
According to reliable source, Rachel was denied Visa following allegations that her banking initiative had extorted donor funds.
It is also alleged that the DP’s wife did not account properly for the money she received from women’s group in the US.
Last year US ambassador to Kenya Mr. Robert Godec revealed that the US government will ban all Kenyan officials tied to any corruption cases from going to America.
Robert also said the US will do that since Kenya’s corrupt officials have reached a crisis state and USA will not be welcoming such fellows.
Recently, it was revealed that Deputy President was banned from traveling to the United States, however, it looks like his whole family was too after his wife Rachel became the first to be denied a Visa.
Ruto’s involvement in almost all corruption cases might also be the reason why Rachel was denied a US Visa.
