With his relationship with President Uhuru Kenyatta becoming damaged beyond repair, pressure is now mounting on Deputy President William Ruto to resign from his position.

While accusing the DP for allegedly drawing salary and huge allowances for no work done, Uhuru allies have now fired shots demanding that Ruto resigns.

At the heart of firing the salvos is Nyeri Town MP Ngunjiri Wambugu and his Cherangany counterpart Joshua Kutuny.

"He is earning public money without money. He should do the honourable thing and quit," Wambugu told the Star.

On their part, Kutuny and Kasarani MP Mercy Gakuya claimed that the DP had abandoned the President and that he now opposing the Government development agenda.

But while accusing President Kenyatta for allegedly being behind the DP's political woes, Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen said that the country is now headed towards the wrong direction because of political deceit.

Murkomen, one of Ruto's foot soldiers who were recently ousted from leadership positions in Parliament, claimed that Uhuru cannot purport to fix the country when he is in fact creating more divisions.

On his part, Soy MP Caleb Kositany, Ruto's de facto spokesperson, claimed that the DP had done much to ensure that Uhuru was elected Kenya's President, first in 2013 and then 2017.

It has also emerged that Ruto will not leave Jubilee Party any time soon, with sources hinting that he may make that decision when the right time comes.
