SUMMARY

“I have CAMPAIGNED, VOTED & SUPPORTED him in the 4 elections he ran for president,” he said.

Adding: “The NOT new nonsensical insults/ sterile accusations spewed were against UHURUTO/Jubilee in the past. IGNORE."

Just hours after a section of leaders hit out at DP William Ruto for what they termed as ‘misconduct’, the DP has responded by saying most of the leaders who have been giving him lectures never voted for President Uhuru Kenyatta.

He further stated that he campaigned for Uhuru and voted for him in all the elections he vied for the Presidency.

“99% of MPs pretending to give me lectures on supporting UKenyatta have NEVER voted for him.


“I have CAMPAIGNED, VOTED & SUPPORTED him in the 4 elections he ran for president,” he said.

Adding: “The NOT new nonsensical insults/ sterile accusations spewed were against UHURUTO/Jubilee in the past. IGNORE [sic].”

On Wednesday, MPs allied to President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga accused the DP of violation of his oath of office.

The lawmakers, totalling over 20, dared Ruto to resign and focus on his presidential ambitions, which they argue has clouded his role as the second in command.

“William Ruto must shape up or ship out,” they said in a joint statement over an alleged “reprehensible conduct” of the DP.

The statement also talked of a fifth column which the dictionary describes as "an enemy from within".

They went on: “The DP is guilty of public misconduct and grave malpractices and has not lived up to the oath of office…he has failed to promote public confidence in the integrity of the high office”.

The statement was read by Baringo Women Representative Gladwell Cheruiyot and Kathiani MP Robert Mbui on behalf of the legislators.

They accused Ruto of declaring a war against State institutions and constitutional bodies.
