Vocal DP Ruto allied MP on Monday, January 20, alleged that Deputy President William Ruto’s convoy has been withdrawn.
Speaking to journalists from a hotel in Nakuru, Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri claimed that the DP has been using his own vehicles to run errands.
“Check the deputy president, he is going with his own cars, old cars. His convoy has been taken away so that people fighting for the BBI report can use them.
“People are dying, teachers are being killed aimlessly, nobody is addressing that. The only issue that is there now is BBI and it is dividing Kenyans more than it is uniting them,” Ngunjiri argued.
The DP’s ally made it clear that he would not back down in his passionate push to ensure that Ruto succeeds his party boss.
“We are ready to pay the price in standing with the DP. They can arrest us but they won’t stop his bid. The BBI meeting in Kisii was Raila Odinga’s campaign using state resources, the same way he turned the 2005 referendum into a political party,” he stated.
The MP, who has since been asked to surrender his guns, went ahead and stated that he had not committed any offence since he started using the weapons in 1993.
“They do not know how to access me, that’s why they want to access my guns so that they can kill me and I am ready.
“I want to tell Kenyans that they are my security. If I go missing, check my reported statements,” he told the media.
The vocal legislator was forced to surrender his firearms after he presented himself to the DCI over remarks he made regarding wrangles within the Jubilee Party.
Speaking to Kenyans.co.ke on January 15, Ngunjiri had claimed that President Uhuru Kenyatta held a top-secret meeting with leaders and elders from the Kikuyu community at his Gicheha Farm, Nakuru on the night of Tuesday, January 14.
Ngunjiri then went on to allege that the president dished it out a total of Ksh4 million, with each leader pocketing Ksh 10,000.
“Uhuru held a meeting with 400 Kikuyu leaders. I hear he told them that he is working to create a position for them in government through the BBI, and each of the leaders left there with Ksh10,000,” Ngunjiri claimed.
