It would seem that the handshake faction is not moved by Tanga Tanga’s threats to quit Jubilee. In fact, they are willing to facilitate the departure if need be.
That was the message sent both verbally and in undertones by MPs from Jubilee and ODM who reiterated their warning to Deputy President William Ruto against undermining the government in the war against corruption.
They said the DP was free to resign if he felt he was being unfairly targeted.
The MPs, led by Mr Maina Kamanda (nominated), Mr Simba Arati (Dagoretti North) and Mr Joshua Kuttuny (Cherangany) while speaking at a church in Nairobi on Sunday also cautioned Dr Ruto against attacking ODM leader Raila Odinga.
“If they want to leave the government, let them do so quietly. Those who have looted public funds should stop issuing veiled threats that their communities are being targeted!” Mr Kamanda said.
Kuttuny said: “You (DP) will never get to power using threats, intimidation and blackmail.”
Arati told the DP to stop attacking the President using his close allies. “We cannot accept this country to slide back to where it was,” Mr Arati said.
MPs present were Ms Mercy Gakuya (Kasarani), Mr Anthony Oluoch (Mathare), Mr Paul Koinange (Kiambaa), Mr Maoka Maore (Igembe North), Mr Robert Mbui (Kathiani), Kiambu woman rep Gathoni Wamuchomba and Mr Ngunjiri Wambugu (Nyeri Town).
