Jubilee Nominated MCA Anne Muthoni Thumbi has hit out at his party leader President Uhuru Kenyatta for 'mistreating' his deputy William Ruto

Thumbi, a MCA in Nairobi City County Assembly, said it was uncalled for and wrong for Uhuru to ask his Ruto to resign knowing very well the huge role he(DP) played in bringing Jubilee government to power. 

Speaking to Kameme TV on Thursday, she wondered why the President was asking Ruto to leave now after helping him secure victories in two successive elections.

The outspoken MCA, who has a son with the late Kibra MP Ken Okoth, dismissed Uhuru's allegations that the DP had become a government critic saying he was just being hateful and malicious.

"I'm very surprised to hear someone telling Ruto to resign knowing very well they were elected on the same Jubilee ticket. How comes we did not say he was dangerous in 2013 and 2017? This is politics full of hatred and mudslinging," Thumbi said.

Despite the call by his boss, Ruto has remained defiant saying there is no room for him to resign or surrender.

The clergy has asked the two leaders to find a solution to their differences which they noted were putting the country in an unnecessary rising political temperatures.
