Deputy President William Ruto’s impeachment has gained momentum after 126 Jubilee party MPs reportedly appended their signatures on his impeachment motion. Lugari Member of Parliament Ayub Savula who is overseeing the Ruto ouster drive has said that 107 Members of Parliament from the NASA coalition are expected to append their signatures as well.
Savula, who is also the Amani National Congress (ANC) deputy party leader laughed off those thinking that impeaching Ruto is an impossible task. He submitted that parliamentarians from various parties are so much eager to send Ruto out of office.
“It is laughable because they do not understand the number of MPs from across the political divide who are supporting this motion,” he said.
The vocal lawmaker criticized the deputy president for undermining the President and opposing him yet Kenyans elected them jointly so that they can deliver together. He commended President Uhuru Kenyatta for working hard to fulfill his promises to Kenyans even when Ruto is sabotaging his government.
“Kenyans voted for both Uhuru and Ruto expecting them to deliver on the promises they made during campaigns. But while the President is busy working hard to implement what they promised, his deputy is frustrating and openly opposing him. Is this the way a government operates?” questioned Savula.
Some of the grounds being floated against Ruto in the impeachment motion are undermining his boss which amounts to insubordination, gross misconduct, violation of chapter six of the constitution among others.
Jubilee vice chair David Murathe in a previous interview stated that the Jubilee Party will be backing any impeachment motion against Ruto.
The ANC lawmaker further confirmed that the impeachment motion against the deputy president is ready and only waiting to be tabled in parliament when sessions resume.
