Kimani Ngunjiri, Bahati MP has lashed out at President Uhuru Kenyatta for incessant humiliation of Deputy President William Ruto.
An irate Ngunjiri alleged the president was also sending people to insult the DP and that he would be held responsible for any skirmishes which would erupt during his regime and the next election.
Speaking on Sunday, May 3, the Ruto ally said Hague was watching the first in command and he would be one of the people who will go to the court and never to come back.
“This path you took of humiliating the DP, and even having people to insult him…Let me tell you Hague is watching. If there will be any bloodshed in Kenya during your leadership or in the coming election, Hague is watching and you will be one of them going back to Hague and you will never come back,” the legislator said.
The visibly exasperated MP said Tanga Tanga camp had been loyal to Uhuru during his reign and thus it was incomprehensible for him to spew hatred to DP’s lieutenants.
“We can not live like that, your excellency! I am saying on behalf of all Kikuyus in Rift Valley we shall live as one people and in peace,” he added. This comes at the height of a widening rift in the Jubilee Party and also between the top two leaders.
Jubilee Party Secretary General Raphael Tuju officially published changes made to the outfit’s National Management Committee (NMC) despite protests from Deputy President William and his allies.
In a notice published on local dailies on Saturday, May 2, the SG made official the appointment of Lucy Nyawira Macharia, Marete Marangu, Walter Nyambati, Jane Nampaso and James Waweru as new members of the NMC.
Tuju’s action prompted a scathing reaction from Ruto’s allies who came up with a litany of damning allegations touching on Uhuru’s family.
They claimed the head of state influenced awarding of Jubilee Party campaign tenders to his kins during the 2017 General Election.
