Lawmakers leaning towards President Uhuru Kenyatta have told his deputy William Ruto he has no reason of being the president’s deputy, due to his continuous defiance of Uhuru’s directives.The MPs have urged to Ruto to excuse himself from the government and fully concentrate on 2022 campaigns, instead of sabotaging Uhuru’s agenda.
The leaders who were speaking during a church service at ACK Good Samaritan in Kasarani on Sunday, among them four Members of Parliament told the DP to go ahead and quit the government so he can have “sufficient time to campaign for the next polls”.
“Why are people busy moving around the country campaigning for the the presidency yet it is not vacant? Let us respect the President and support him. At the right time, let those interested in various seats conduct their campaigns,” said Nyeri MP Ngunjiri Wambugu.
Speaking at the same function, Cherengany MP Joshua Kutuny, an ardent critic of the DP said President Uhuru Kenyatta is finding it hard to implement the Big 4 when his deputy is busy pulling on the opposite direction.
“When Uhuru is busy pushing for his agenda, his deputy is busy asking for 2022 votes. Those who are not ready to support the President in achieving his dream for this country should get out to allow him achieve his agenda,” said Kutuny who also leads the rebellion against Ruto in the Rift Valley.
In attendance were MPs Joshua Kutuny (Cherangany), Mercy Gakuya (Kasarani), Ngunjiri Wambugu (Nyeri Town) and Paul Koinange (Kiambaa). Also present was the new entrant in the Kielweke group, Kiambu Deputy Governor James Nyoro, former Dagoretti South MP Dennis Waweru and former presidential advisor on education, Dr Kilemi Mwiria.
