Deputy President William Ruto’s wife, Rachael Ruto,has reportedly been barred from travelling to the US after being denied a US visa for allegedly squandering donor funds from a US based women’s organisation .
According to impeccable sources from Rachael’s privy,she was supposed to travel with First Lady Margaret Kenyatta to the United States last week but she could get her US visa through following claims that her table banking initiative squandered millions of donor funds.
“It is alleged she didn’t properly account for funds she received from a women’s group from the US … this may have
contributed to her being denied the VISA, if it is true she actually was denied one,” the source intimated.
In November last year, US Ambassador to Kenya, Robert Godec, said Kenyan officials who are named in corruption
scandals will find it difficult travelling to the United States.
Ever since The Jubilee government took power in 2013,DP Ruto has been mentioned and embroiled with a number of graft allegations and his family are among those who are reportedly banned from visiting the US and his wife was the first victim to face these consequences.
