After a thorough beating at the National Assembly and the Senate, a plan has been hatched to further politically embarrass Deputy President William Ruto with a contest on the ground.
Jubilee Vice Chairman David Murathe said it was time to test the popularity or lack of it of Ruto and his surrogates on the ground – as he reveals plans to kick out Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria from the ruling party.
Murathe said the voting in both houses of Parliament has revealed that Ruto has no numbers as he has been claiming and it was clear that impeaching him would be as easy as a walk in the park.
He said during the voting in National Assembly the numbers required to impeach Ruto were easily surpassed exposing him as a sitting duck should any impeachment motion be mooted.
Murathe’s observations had been buttressed earlier by Health CS Mutahi Kagwe who said when it matters Mt Kenya region speaks with one voice even if they had received Sh 2 billion in Church donations.
Kagwe also said that when time comes to chart the political direction of the region Mt Kenya will meet under the guidance of President Uhuru and they will again speak with one voice.
Speaking on Wednesday night, Murathe said Kuria – a key supporter of Ruto – had formed his own party and has sponsored a candidate in the upcoming Juja Parliamentary seat even though he still claims to be a Jubilee member.
He said Jubilee is left with no option than to kick out Kuria so that he can go on the ground and so that his popularity and that of Ruto can be tested.
Murathe said Kuria’s popularity has never been tested as the seat he occupies was literally given to him – this is the time for him to show his popularity.
He said all other rebels in Jubilee among them nominated senator Millicent Omanga and Nominated MP Cecil Mbarire will also be kicked out of the party just the same was former nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura lost his seat after he was kicked out.
