Ruto's Name Pops up as Allegations Emerge on a Scheme to Impeach Uhuru-Allied Governor

Deputy president William Ruto's name has been mentioned in an alleged scheme to Impeach and haul a popular governor allied to president Uhuru Kenyatta out of the office over a year before a general election is due.

As The Standard reports, a delegation of political leaders from Wajir county led by deputy governor Ahmed Mukhtar and M.P Nasri Yakub who is interested in the Wajir governorship held talks with deputy president William Ruto at his Karen office several months before the impeachment motion against governor Mohamed Abdi was filed. 

It is claimed that some politicians from Wajir county had been asked to Impeach governor Mohamed Abdi due to his association with president Uhuru Kenyatta and his support for the building bridges initiative (BBI).

Further, it has emerged that some senators allied to the Tangatanga camp are pressuring the impeachment of the Uhuru allied governor in the same zeal as previous motions tabled to Impeach other Uhuru, Raila allied governors like Anne Waiguru and others.

The Wajir governor himself claims that there are a group of people in Nairobi who are scheming for his impeachment simply because he has shown support for the building bridges initiative.

"The MCAs are being used by some politicians in Nairobi. Some are fighting me because of my support for the BBI. I have the support of the people of Wajir. I will do everything through my lawyers to defend my seat," Abdi alleged.
