Kenyan politician and Saboti Member of parliament Caleb Hamisi has refuted claims made by deputy president William Ruto that the former prime Minister of Kenya and orange democratic party leader honorable Raila Amollo Odinga is the man behind the woes in Jubilee Party.
Speaking to Tv47 reporters, the Caleb Amisi claimed that everything that' s going on in Jubilee has nothing to do with the former prime Minister because according to him, the deputy president was the one disrespecting president Uhuru Kenyatta by campaigning and even undermining Uhuru' s leadership.
He went ahead and claimed that President Uhuru Kenyatta was one of the kindest leaders because despite all of this things, the president was still humble enough to share his government with his deputy.
However, he went ahead and made it clear that if he were the president then he would have fired the deputy president adding that no other president would agree to be disrespected this way.
Everything that's happening in Jubilee has nothing to do with ODM Leader Raila Odinga because as far as I' m concerned, William Ruto is the one causing everything because if I were the president i would have fired William Ruto without a second thought because i believe that no other president would tolerate this.
His remarks has however sparked alot of mixed reactions from Kenyans who seemed to have had different opinions and suggestions on this.
With a section of Kenyans supporting him by claiming that it was indeed true and that the president had the right to fire anyone because he is after all the president of Kenya, others went ahead and called out the Mp for misleading Kenyans because William Ruto was elected by Kenyans and not the president.
The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) began putting its house in order even as it emerged that its leader Raila Odinga may have already expressed interest in party' s presidential ticket.
The party' s National Executive Committee (NEC) met at a city hotel and resolved, among other things, to start preparations for grassroots elections according to a report by The Star.
The party also reiterated its February 26 deadline for those interested in flying the party presidential ticket to formally express their interest through its election board.
I was Raila' s running mate in 2013 and 2017. Why should I support him a third time? People will think I am mad.
I have the experience and qualities to be president and will go for it, " Mr Musyoka told NTV on Wednesday.
Raila Odinga contested the presidency on the ticket of the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (Cord), Nasa' s predecessor, in 2013.
" We will ratify the resolutions of the CMC and discuss progress of National Elections Board (NEB) chaired by Prof Catherine Mumma on applicants for the presidential ticket before setting a date for a delegates meeting to allow them to sell their agendas, " Mr Mbadi said.
The new rules which are a broader part of the implementation of the explosive report, are contained in the recommendations of ODM Standing Committee of legal affairs.
The recommendations require that contesters for various seats under ODM must be registered as bonafide members of the party at least two years to the elections and one should register with 1 million Kenya shillings
Top Political analyst, Herman Manyora has however come out to warn the Deputy President William Ruto not to play with a man holding power.
He then advised the Deputy President to find President Uhuru Kenyatta in private and reconcile with him.
This is after the major fallout between the Deputy President and the President through the famous Handshake between President Uhuru and the then opposition leader and the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Party Leader Raila Odinga in which the Deputy President seemed to have been politically thrown out.
From then the Deputy President William Ruto indirectly started opposing the government despite he himself being part of the ruling government.
Currently, the country is in heated political times whereby the Deputy President is in a bid to popularize his interest for the presidential seat ahead of the upcoming general elections in the year 2022.
The government led by President Uhuru Kenyatta and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga are drumming up the support for the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) constitutional amendment law push.
Through this, the Deputy President is said to allegedly oppose the government.
Everyone in power has come out to fight the Deputy President including President Uhuru whereby in he's previous your in Uthiru- Muthua asked the Deputy President to work for the government or resign instead of criticizing the government.
The former Prime Minister also asked the Deputy President William Ruto to clear the air as to whether he' s in the government or opposition.
"Don't play with a man holding power. If president Uhuru and Raila Odinga decide to impeach DP Ruto trust me, they will get those requisite numbers.
DP Ruto cannot distance himself from the failures of the Jubilee government.
That is why some of us gave him an option of resigning.
It is only by resigning that DP Ruto can escape from this government' s failures, " Political Analyst Manyora stated.
