President Uhuru Kenyatta warns MPs against motion to impeach Ruto

President Uhuru Kenyatta has urged a section of Jubilee MPs to drop an impeachment motion against William Ruto. Jubilee vice-chairman David Murathe disclosed the information.

Murathe revealed the particulars amid rising speculations from the DPs Tanga Tanga group of a looming impeachment. The members of parliament alleged legislatures allied to the president planned on removing the DP before the 2022 elections.

Known for shooting from the heap when it comes to the President, Murathe said Uhuru advised the legislatures to concentrate on building the nation.

“Uhuru is a compassionate man and full of patience. Moreover, he defends friendships, both current and past. As a result, he cautioned his close associates against a proposal that will outrightly kick Ruto out of government or the Jubilee party,” said Murathe.

On Thursday, MPs associated with Ruto said Kanini Kega, the Kieni lawmaker, had drafted a proposal to impeach DP Ruto. He added the motion was an initial plan among Uhuru’s allies.

Led by Moses Kuria of Gatundu South, the Tanga Tanga flag-waver claimed the deputy president was at the center of ridicule after Uhuru’s abandonment.

“I can confirm that Kanini Kega plans to have the second in command fired. The president dismissed Ruto a long time ago from his position. Having him fired for the second time is a waste of time and resources,” stated Moses Kuria.

However, Kega denied the accusations terming it baseless with a lack of iota.

Uhuru’s expulsion of renegade MPs closely associated with the deputy president has left the Tanga Tanga team with uncertainty regarding their political future.

The ouster of senator Susan Kihika and Kipchumba Murkomen as the chief whip and majority leader sent jitters in Ruto’s camp.

Additionally, Kithure Kindiki’s removal as a senate deputy speaker has sent a strong message to the errant members of parliament.

As a resolve to tame prodigal members, some members may continue to lose their positions.
