Deputy President William Ruto has been warned to desist from using Raila Odinga and BBI as a scapegoat in his fight against President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The pro-BBI MPs who were addressing the media on Monday at the parliament building demanded DP Ruto to resign because he has resorted to undermining the President.
“The remarks by the DP are an affront to the President who is the head of state and government. Hiding behind BBI and Raila is open camouflage,” said minority whip Junet Mohammed.
“It is clear the DP is hiding behind Raila and the BBI to fight the President and those public officers the President has entrusted with the power of helping him run the government,” he added.
The MPs also threatened to sponsor a law change that allows the President to appoint and dismiss his Deputy.
“We are asking the Deputy President that you are the principal assistant to the President, please give the President respect that he deserves,” said nominated MP Maina Kamanda who was also present.
In the past few days, DP Ruto strongly came out to criticise the BBI initiative and the arrest of Jubilee MPs allied to the Tangatanga team.
