Uhuru, Ruto friendship Is Totally Broken, Murathe Now Says
May. 22, 2020
Difference between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy Dr William Ruto are beyond repair, Jubilee Vice-Chairman said on Thursday, May 21.
In a televised interview with K24, Murathe said that what has happened between the two leaders is irreconcilable.
Murathe said that the DP has shown a rebellious spirit towards his boss by challenging Uhuru on May 11 Parliamentary Group meeting where a handful of senators loyal to him failed to turn up.
Murathe stated that Ruto rallied the senators to snub the meeting that had been convened by President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House.
This, Murathe says, was an open rebellion by the DP towards his boss.
“It is not a secret, the DP was actively whipping Senators not to attend. That is the height of insolence, it is unheard of anywhere in the world. That actually is not only defiance but a threat to the President.,” Murathe said.
“It’s like asking the President ‘who do you think you are? You can call for a parliamentary group meeting and I can ask them not to come.’ Unfortunately, in this case, their numbers did not add up."
Murathe who is a long-time critic of President Uhuru Kenyatta said that talks of Ruto impeachment by the party are non-founded.
However, he warned that Ruto should not dare the party to impeach him because it is possible to do so.
“If they want us to go there, I believe there are enough grounds,” he added.
On Thursday, Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria told off Kieni MP Kanini Kega who he alleged that he was about to table an impeachment motion against Ruto.
“I know Hon Kanini Kega has a motion ready for the impeachment of DP Ruto. In the mind of Uhuru he fired Ruto along time ago, why are we firing him twice? He has accepted he is just waiting for his term to end. Why bother to impeach someone who is already impeached by design? Kuria posted on Facebook.
