Gatundu South Member of Parliament (MP) Moses Kuria has exposed a backstabbing plot by Jubilee party to impeach the Deputy President William Ruto.
Speaking on Thursday, Kuria claimed that Kieni MP Kanini Kega had drafted a motion to impeach the DP and the president was not going to stand against his party members as he is in cahoots with them.
“I know Hon Kanini Kega has a motion ready for the impeachment of DP Ruto,” Kuria stated, “in the mind of Uhuru he fired Ruto a long time ago, why are we firing him twice?”
Kuria argued that Jubilee members should let the DP see his term out. “He has accepted he is just waiting for his term to end. Why bother to impeach someone who is already impeached by design?” he posed.
Ruto’s allies Senators Kipchumba Murkomen and Susan Kihika were sacked as Senate majority leader and majority whip, respectively in a calculated move to pave way for the planned ousting.
However, David Murathe, the Jubilee Vice-Chairman has dismissed the claims that there is a plan to drive the Deputy President home.
“This impeachment talk, I can tell you, is not on a card on the table. But as I had stated in an earlier interview, he should be careful with what he wishes for.” the Jubilee Vice-Chairman said in an interview.
“If they want us to go there, I believe there are enough grounds.”
