“He has claimed that he is the one who has made Raila Odinga be the prime minister and Uhuru Kenyatta to be president. We are waiting for him to make himself president come 2022,” the lawmaker said during a press briefing on Monday.
He challenged the DP to resign and concentrate on his 2022 ambitions if he felt he was being frustrated.

He also accused Ruto of unleashing his allies to attack President Uhuru Kenyatta and Mama Ngina Kenyatta and then coming out to warn them about the same.
“I want to ask the DP to spare this country the politics of war and threats and violence…. You cannot abuse other leaders to gain power including mothers of this country,” he said.

The MP was referring to utterances from Emurua Dikirr MP Johanna Ngeno and his Kapseret counterpart Oscar Sudi.
Ngeno was arrested on Monday over hate remarks he made towards the President’s mother on Saturday. He has been charged with using abusive language and offensive conduct.
Sudi reacted to Ngeno’s arrest by releasing a series of videos on social media addressing the President and his mother.
