Tuesday May 19, 2020 – A section of Jubilee MPs have told President Uhuru Kenyatta off over an alleged plan to impeach his Deputy, William Ruto.
Speaking yesterday, the MPs led by Kimani Ichungwa (Kikuyu), Rigathi Gachagua (Mathira), John Kiarie (Dagoretti South) and Mohammed Ali (Nyali), asserted that MPs allied to Deputy President William Ruto will not be intimidated.
“We are aware that there are plans to bring up trumped-up charges through DCI and EACC against particular Members of Parliament, in an effort to try and coerce them to toe particular political inclinations.”
“I think I have been very clear that once I take a position, I cannot be swayed from that position, not by the threats to life that have been there to myself and other MPs who are aligned to the DP,” Ichung’wa stated.
Similar sentiments were echoed by Mathira MP, Rigathi Gachagua, who warned that intimidation of leaders only strengthened their message ahead of the 2022 elections.
“Intimidation of leaders will go nowhere.”
“In fact, the more you intimidate these leaders, the more solidified their ground becomes,” he stated.
On his part, Dagoretti South MP, John Kiarie, expressed his displeasure at the formation of coalitions at a time when Kenyans were fighting the Coronavirus pandemic.
He argued that it was not the right time for politicians to get into political realignments.
Similarly, Nyali MP, Mohamed Ali, better known as Moha Jicho Pevu, warned the President over his ‘treatment of Deputy President William Ruto’.
“Whatever you are doing to William Ruto will be done to you.”
“The world is a cycle, what you do unto someone will also be done to you.”
“This is an unlawful partnership, you cannot sit down and plan how you will form the government,” he vented.
