MPs allied to President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga have asked Deputy President William Ruto to resign over what they called ‘constant sabotage’ of the government agenda.
While addressing the press at Parliament Buildings on Wednesday, 22 lawmakers said Dr Ruto has openly opposed the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) and engaged in endless politics instead of helping Mr Kenyatta to unite the country.
Led by Kitutu Chache North MP Jimmy Angwenyi, the MPs also criticised the DP for attacking Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i, his principal secretary Karanja Kibicho and Inspector-General of Police Hilary Mutyambai over the alleged harassment of Jubilee leaders.
The MPs present were Ngunjiri Wambugu (Nyeri Town), Ben Momanyi (Borabu), William Kamket (Tiaty), Peter Mwathi (Limuru), Richard Onyonka (Kitutu Chache South) and Gathoni wa Muchomba (Kiambu).
Also in attendance were Mishi Mboko (Likoni), Fatuma Gedi (Wajir), Raphael Wanjala (Budalangi), George Aladwa (Makadara), George Odanga (Matayos), James K’Oyoo (Muhoroni), Samuel Arama (Nakuru Town West), Zadock Ogutu (Bomachoge Borabu), Justus Kizito (Shinyalu), Simba Arati (Dagoretti North) and Godfrey Osotsi (nominated).
