Speaking at a political rally aimed at drumming support for the party’s Ugenya parliamentary candidate, Chris Karan, Orengo promised to initiate an impeachment motion targeting the Deputy President. "The DP can also be removed for gross misconduct.

However, ODM party chairman John Mbadi termed the move as personal and not a reflection of the party’s stand.
