Friday May 22, 2020 – Former Jubilee Party Vice Chairman, David Murathe, has dismissed claims that President Uhuru Kenyatta is planning to impeach his deputy, William Ruto.
In an interview with a local TV station on Thursday, Murathe said no one was plotting to impeach Ruto as claimed by the DP’s allies.
“The impeachment talk, is something being used by leaders allied to him (DP) to seek sympathy, but I can tell you for sure it is neither here nor there,” Murathe said.
Murathe said the relationship between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy had ended after the latter threatened and defied his boss.
He said Ruto had been using his proxies to challenge President Uhuru in the past until last week during the Senate PG meeting at State House when he took on his boss by whipping Senators to skip his meeting.
“Ruto was at his Karen home calling Senators and telling them to skip a PG meeting called by the party leader, this is insubordination of the highest degree,” Murathe said.
There is a deep rumour that Uhuru with the assistance of Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader, Raila Odinga, is planning to impeach Ruto so that he can be in a good position to cling to power even after his tenure ends in 2022.
