It is said that the money is held by radio presenter Felix Odiwuor alia Jalang’o, Shaffie Weru, Prezzo and KRG the Don among others.
“Only Shaffie has not joined politics like the rest but he is warming up to Ruto. As time goes by, it will be so clear to you,” says another source quoted by the blogger.
