DRAW the attention of the House to the following:
The Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) a state entity on 15th August,2018 claimed that Deputy President Hon.William Somei Ruto grabbed its land Plot No.209/14372 located in Langata Road, opposite Wilson Airport and constructed hotel named Weston Hotel.
That the Deputy President is a Co-Director along with his daughter Charlene Chelagat and his wife Racheal Chebet Kimetto.
That during a public meeting (held on 31st October,2018) between NLC and the parties on the matter the Deputy President defended himself claiming he acquired the property legally contrally to claims he grabbed it.
That following the completion tenure of National Land Commission it emerged they were unable to concussively to solve the issue due to a clear manifestation of interference from the Deputy President office.
That since the land stand his Weston Hotel was grabbed during the Constitution transitional period, its prudent to point out that since the facility stands within the National Flight Path, the hotel, customers, the workforce, the suppliers and taxi operators working within it tend to be exposed to gravious environmental harm due to disembarking flight fumes and smoke, exposure to flight risks of crashing into the building.
That in January 19,2015 the Langata Primary School childrens, teachers and Civil Society Members embarked on demolishing the Weston Hotel perimeter wall which had encroached the entire school playground. A campaign which came to be known as #OCCUPY PLAYGROUND.
That following the demolitions of the said perimeter wall, over 35 school children’s were injured as a result of being clobbered and teargased several people were arrested and charged with trumped up court cases.
That the National Youth Service (NYS) workforce and machineries were engaged to cater away the demolished assets at a tax payers cost in November that year Pope in his visit to Kenya held a session with slum dwellers and he singled out against land grabbing ,especially on school spaces .
That as a presequite to contest for i.e Presidential or Deputy President position a candidate must declare his wealth to Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission, which to my knowledge the Deputy President has not submitted ,that during BBC HARDTalk Show while Abroad he refused to reveal his net worth nor participate/undergo the Presidential Order No.1,2018, for all state officer to undergo Lifestyle Audit.
That in around February this year during the BBC HARDTalk show Deputy President Claimed to have submitted list of his assets and liabilities to the speaker of National Assembly .
That during the National Team- Harambee Stars, Africa Cup Of Nations (AFCON) qualifications matches the Deputy President promised to award the National Team Ksh 50 Million which to date despite the team having qualified, he has not honored his pledge.
Efforts by bloggers and online active citizens to request that Depurty President to honour his Ksh 50 Million pledge to Harambee Stars have not been settled.
That since he assumed office in 2013 and after reelection he has perfected abusive, degrading and demeaning sentiments in print and online media especially targeting his purported political foes, granted that our mainstream media reports this, such abusive language is being embraced and mimicked by our childrens, thus undermining our childrens and families values .
THAT Here confirm that the issues in respect of which the petition is made are not pending before any court of law, or constitutional or legal body.
HEREFORE, your humble petitioner Pray–
That this petition be dealt with immediately in view of the urgency and gravity of the issues raised.
The Parliament to spearhead the removal of Depurty President Hon.Dr.William S Ruto as stipulated under Article 150 (1)(b) i,ii,iii.And any other laws as stipulated in the Kenya constitution.
Do pray Deputy President be directed to settle the pledge he promised National Football Team Harambee Stars.
That the management of the grabbed Weston Hotel be compelled to compensate financially families ,civil society members, school and childrens whom were injured during the skirmishes, those whom inhaled teargas exposing them to health hazards.
That the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) be granted back their land and ensure the demolition of the facility which risks lives of flight passengers for planes embarking the Airport.
That regal action be instituted against the Deputy President and his business partners in situations contravening constitution and laws of Kenya .
That Deputy President and his entire office staff be investigated for gross misconduct and corrupt activities done since 2013 to date..
