Deputy President William Ruto has reportedly told URP MPs currently having a closed door meeting in his office not to support the motion by Nandi Hills MP Alfred Keter to censure Devolution CS Anne Waiguru.
The URP group have been sending mixed signals on Waiguru ouster bid even as Keter revealed he has collected enough signatures to table a motion in parliament to discuss the conduct of the powerful CS seen as close to President Uhuru.
While State House has consistently defended Waiguru from any wrong doing, the opposition, led by CORD leader Raila Odinga, have called on the President to hold her accountable over the loss of over sh 800 million at the devolution ministry.
Ruto is said to have implored on the MPs not to give the opposition a window to attack the government at a time the country is volatile following the resurgent ICC debate. The Deputy President also told the MPs he doesn’t want their ‘friends’ from Mt. Kenya to hold him responsible if Waiguru exits government.
The MPs are set to address the media shortly.
