Tuesday September 24, 2019-Kericho Senator, Aaron Cheruyot, has distanced himself from allegations that he was planning for the impeachment of Interior Cabinet Secretary, Dr Fred Matiangi.
Early this year, Cheruiyot, who is a close confidante of Deputy President William Ruto, threatened to kick out Dr Matiangi from the Cabinet over Ruaraka land saga, claiming that he had paid for public land.
To make good his threat, Cheruiyot fronted Belgut MP, Nelson Koech to kick start Matiangi’s impeachment accusing the powerful CS of allegedly misusing his powers.
But on Sunday, Cheruiyot, insisted that ODM party under Homa Bay Senator Moses Kajwang plotted for the impeachment.
"We had no interest to impeach Matiang'i. Dr Ruto has no issues with the minister. It's ODM which plotted through Moses Kajwang to remove him," he said.
"I received a call from the DP and he demanded that I move with speed and quell the tension. I summoned Jubilee Senators and asked them to ignore the motion," he added.
