Former Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto has once more accused Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party of not sharing the Political Parties Fund with his Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM) party during his stint at NASA coalition.
Ruto said he was concerned about how ODM was being run and questioned the party’s commitment to honour promises after claiming that his party Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM) did not receive a penny from the kitty.
“We have serious questions with the way ODM is being managed.
“Take for instance the sharing of the political parties’ fund. CCM (Chama Cha Mashinani) never received a single cent from the political fund allocation against the agreement we had as members of NASA,” he said when he appeared on Citizen TV on Tuesday night.
With this, it appears as if Ruto never moved on from the funds allocation debate after other parties that formed the defunct NASA coalition cried foul.
However, ODM has been categorical that the funds were not for the coalition of parties but individual outfits depending on the number of elected leaders.
The issue of sharing of political parties’ fund became a thorn in the flesh of NASA until it was disbanded early this year.
Isaac Ruto has since declared that he will support William Ruto in the 2022 presidential elections while other three former NASA principals namely Moses Wetangula, Kalonzo Musyoka and Musalia Mudavadi have joined the new One Kenya Alliance.
Raila is expected to declare his fifth stab at the presidency this week.
