Twenty-three MPs have accused DP William Ruto of undermining President Uhuru Kenyatta and demanded his resignation.
They said the DP has been attacking government officials and working round the clock to scuttle Uhuru’s handshake deal with ODM leader Raila Odinga and undermine the yet-to-be-released Building Bridges Initiative report.
The lawmakers, drawn from Jubilee, ODM, Ford Kenya, Wiper and Kanu – some of whom have been DP’s close allies – accused him of ‘fighting’ the government from within and dared him to quit.
“If you are dissatisfied with the leadership of President Uhuru Kenyatta, I dare you to resign,” Tiaty MP William Kamket said.
The MPs were reacting to attacks on Interior CS Fred Matiang’i, his PS Karanja Kibicho and Police IG Hillary Mutyiambai by Tangatanga MPs on Tuesday.
The Tangatanga legislators had claimed that the three officers planned the fracas witnessed in parts of Kibra during last week’s by-election. The DP has also personally attacked Raila and his ODM team, accusing them of sponsoring ‘chaos’ to not only win the election but also undermine the handshake.
