Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua's alleged latest move has sparked sharp reactions from Mt Kenya and other parts of the country.
Reports emerged, originating from Daily Nation, alleging the second in command had started calling chiefs and assistant chiefs, telling them to look for other jobs because they are set to be fired.
According to the publication, chiefs perceived to have supported Azimio la Umoja in the last general election are being targeted by DP Gachagua.
Digital strategist Pauline Njoroge has now hit out at the DP, questioning his statesmanship as the second most powerful leader in the country.
According to Pauline, who enjoyed a good working environment with the previous government, Rigathi Gachgua has ''completely refused'' to learn, even from his own boss, President William Ruto.
"A whole Deputy President calling a chief to tell him to quit? Will he call chiefs across the country who he has issues with to give them the same instructions, or only in Central Kenya?
"Rigathi has completely refused to learn the basics of Statesmanship even from his boss," tweeted Pauline while reacting to Nation's headline.
One chief who allegedly received a phone call from the DP told Nation that he was asked about the years remaining before he retires. He alleged that DP Gachagua told him that he had received a report that he supported Azimio in the last election
"When I finally picked up the call, it was a familiar voice of his Excellency the deputy president. He started by informing me that he had information that I was among those who were supporting Azimio during the elections. The call was short, and he ended by asking me how many years are left before I retire," said the chief in part.
