Tuesday March 26, 2019 - Former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga’s son, Raila Odinga Jnr, has supported Siaya Senator James Orengo’s proposed impeachment of Deputy President William Ruto.
On Sunday, Orengo who was speaking in Siaya County vowed to institute a motion of impeachment against the DP over what he termed as gross misconduct.
Following Orengo’s threat, Raila Odinga Jnr, supported calls to have Ruto impeached.
“Senior Counsel James Orengo is within his right to bring a motion of no confidence just like any other Kenyan can do," Raila Odinga Jnr stated on Tuesday.
"It doesn't necessarily have to be a position of his party ODM." Raila Odinga jnr added.
Orengo reminded Ruto that the Constitution allows the President to appoint a new Deputy President after his removal, with the approval of the National Assembly.
Raila Odinga Jnr's statement comes even as ODM party leaders are divided over Orengo’s impeachment motion against the Deputy President.
