Leaders from DP William Ruto’s faction have taken an issue with President Uhuru Kenyatta’s last night’s calls on his deputy to resign from the government if he was not satisfied with its policies.
Speaking to news editors at State House in Nairobi the Head of State asked the DP if he was confident in his agenda then he should take it to the people to evaluate them, and not fighting the government of the day.
“I have an agenda that I was elected on. The honorable thing to do if you are not happy with it is to step aside and allow those who want to move on to do so then take the agenda to the people,” the president said.
Former Majority leader in the senate Kipchumba Murkomen says it was the president who ought to resign for not providing leadership and sidelining his deputy.
Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika says the DP was elected on a joint ticket with President Uhuru and is not an appointee of the president.
On his part, Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichungwa says they are in government to the end and that the DP is not going anywhere soon.
