Kikuyu Member of Parliament and DP Ruto’s close associate Kimani Ichung’wa has gone ham on Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang’i and his Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho following reports that PS Kibicho locked DP Ruto out of his official residence in Mombasa.
Speaking in Narok on Sunday, 12 January 2020, Ichung’wa told DP Ruto to worry less while goading Matiang’i and Kibicho to give the house to ODM leader Raila Odinga.
I want to encourage you that even if they close the house of the Deputy President in Mombasa or even Karen do not worry. Just persevere, these hustlers you see here and millions of others have houses all over Kenya with bedrooms and they have kept the bedrooms for you in their houses. Tell Kibicho and Matiang’i to give the house to Tinga. (Nataka tu nikutie nguvu ya kwamba wakifunga nyumba ya naibu wa rais iwe ya Mombasa hata wafunge ya Karen, wewe usijali vumilia tu hawa hawa mahustler wote unaona hapa na mamilioni ya mahustler Kenya nzima wako na bedrooms na wamekuweka kwa nyumba zao uende ulale kwa nyumba zao Ambia Kibicho and Matiangi wapee Tinga),” Kimani Ichung’wa stated.
On the very day, while reacting to the news that DP Ruto had been kicked out of his official residence, leaders including Senate Majority leader Kipchumba Murkomen, Kericho Senator Aaron Cheruiyot and Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria hinted at unnamed state operatives being behind the reported woes, with Ruto-allied leaders having faced their own tribulations in recent times.
Kuria, disclosed to that some individuals were working hard to plot against them, vowing that they were in for a surprise.
“There are some people who are lying to themselves, and they should know they are in for a rude shock,” Kuria said
“It’s possible that DP’s office was preparing it for Ruto’s Deputy in 2022 but unfortunately it became ready earlier than expected. Just maybe,” Murkomen posted on Twitter.
“Like every Kawaida Hustler, the DP came back from Christmas to find the landlord had padlocked the gate…Usual January blues, am sure they shall pass. Stay the course William Ruto.”There’s a cheque am awaiting, ikipita nitakukumbuka (There’s a cheque I’m awaiting, when it comes I’ll remember you,” Kericho Senator Aaron Cheruiyot wrote on Twitter.
