He has linked the DP to the fight that was witnessed in Kisii last week, where South Mugirango MP Sylvannus Osoro raided the podium to fight Dagoretti North MP Simba Arati, resulting in a fist fight.
Kalonzo, while heaping all the blame on Osoro, a Ruto ally, claimed on Thursday that his actions are due to the radicalization himself and other MPs have been put through by Ruto so that they can fight his critics.
"We thought that only the jobless were being radicalised. The results of the DP’s actions were seen on Monday where MPs exchanged blows in public. These wars have been instigated by the DP,” he said at Kabarak, Nakuru county, according to the Standard.
He claimed that Ruto has also been sending his allies to insult President Uhuru Kenyatta, hence former Nairobi governor Mike Sonko's attacks on the president before his impeachment last year.
“It is sad that the deputy president has now radicalised even members of Parliament to attack colleagues on podiums," added the former Vice President.
This comes as an additional 'crime' in Ruto's charge sheet, with the DP's critics also accusing him of causing a class war between Kenyans through his 'Hustlers versus Dynasties' campaign strategy.
Ruto has also been accused of disrespecting President Uhuru Kenyatta by bashing and ignoring his order against early campaigns and bashing other leaders, including ODM boss Raila Odinga.
Other leaders, including Kalonzo, have also linked him to criminal activities like land grabbing.
