RVR was a well calculated scheme to fleece the Assets worth billions.

His sister was made head of the lucrative Railway Pension Scheme (The body in charge of the huge land in Muthurwa, Makongeni, Landi Mawe- worth billions) and she was involved in massive theft.

Several moneyed groups like the Truck Owners and Bus Owners always visited the money loving Raila to ensure that Reli is not built.
