Friday December 6, 2019 - Suna East MP, Junet Mohammed, has asked Deputy President William Ruto to do the honorable thing amid an apparently widening rift between him and President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Speaking on Wednesday, Junet said that given that Ruto has failed to obey his boss and is now trying to frustrate him, the DP should publicly admit that he no longer wants to work with Uhuru.
He said that in such a case, the DP should do the necessary by resigning from his office, which he said his party leader, Raila Odinga, would have done in such a situation.
He faulted the DP for allegedly turning against Uhuru, stating that if there are issues, he should resign and battle him in a constitutional race rather than engage in sabotage.
"If it was Raila Odinga and us, we should have resigned a long time from the Government.”
“We would not have done these kinds of things.”
“We would tell the President now we are done, we are not seeing things the same way we will meet another day, we will just meet at the ballot," Junet said in an interview on KTN’s Pointblank.
He observed that so keen is Ruto on frustrating Uhuru that he is now turning his own people against him, and using then to spread his agenda while embarrassing the President.
"You cannot have your cake and eat it (sic).”
“A Cabinet Minister, appointed by the President is holding a meeting of a faction of Government who are perceived to be opposed to the President.”
“It’s unacceptable, it's undemocratic," he said in reference to Mwangi Kiunjuri.
