Matungulu member of parliament (MP) Stephen Mule has threatened to table a motion of impeachment before parliament to remove Deputy President William Ruto from office over graft.
Speaking at Ngonda Catholic Church Mule lamented that it is a shame the office of the Deputy President was being used to dupe unsuspecting Kenyans and investors.
He said that there is a need for the DP to exonerate himself from the 39 billion arms deal and other scandals involving his office.
“I want to ask the deputy president William Ruto if you are not linked to the issue of scam done in your office come out and clear your name,” said Mule.
“If you’re not coming out, we as members of the parliament will demand you to resign because you’re shaming the president,” he added.
In his defense, Ruto stated that the media had been compromised to blow the whole issue out of proportion.
The DP has been under pressure to resign from his position due to graft taking place in his office. Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu on Sunday took the deputy president head-on asking him to stop deceiving Kenyans through tweets and that he should step aside.
However, Ruto’s allies have defended him stating that whoever has evidence against the DP should report to the police instead of yapping aimlessly.
Last week former Cabinet secretary for sports, art, and culture Rashid Echesa was arrested and arraigned in court over-involvement in the 39 billion fake tender involving a Poland arms dealer.
