The Handshake Legislators on Thursday 5 November turned against the Deputy President William Ruto asking him to drop a resignation letter to quit his job and stop attacking Interior CS Fred Matiang’i and PS Karanja Kibicho publicly instead find an amicable way to address their grievances.
“These are very loaded and desperate warnings which cannot just be wished away,” the Handshake lawmakers statement reads in part.
The leaders termed DP Ruto’s public attack against Matiang’i and Kibicho as being unsincere and unprofessional yet he had all the powers to summon them and address his concerns.
“We are not surprised that he is on the tangent again ranting and cursing with the characteristic anger and bitterness at people whom he believes owe him the presidency,” the MPs statement read.
The leaders also alleged that DP Ruto is bitter not because of the BBI or the clamor for the presidency but because his corruption taps have run dry and the fake projects he used to launch are no longer available.
The lawmakers dared DP Ruto to face his boss President Uhuru Kenyatta and not public servants, mocking him to stop reminding everyone that he is the second in command as people are tired of the same song.
“His obsession with civil servants who are his juniors underlines the deep insecurity painting him as one not sure of himself, worth and future,” the lawmakers added.
The lawmakers also asked the DP to learn that the problem is not in the civil servants he is attacking but his power-hungry character and politics of entitlement, division, and anger at a time the nation is focused on reconciliation and unity.
