With his letter, Senator James Orengo of Siaya, who is also a staunch ally of former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta, has struck a huge blow to Deputy President William Ruto and his allies. According to today's Standard Newspaper, Orengo believes that the Deputy President and his friends are undermining the president and that fast action is necessary to avoid more embarrassment for the administration.
He is requesting that President Uhuru Kenyatta relieve those cabinet secretaries close to Ruto of their duties. He also aims to expel Ruto's associates from a number of parastatals. "There is some additional work to be done. The president is unable to do so as long as his chief of staff continues to undermine him. " As expressed by Hon. Orengo, "Ruto's position is an extension of the president's, and continuing to attack the president undermines the government's common responsibility," he added.
