A section of Jubilee MP’s allied to DP William Ruto have threatened to impeach Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang’i.
The legislators led by Belgut MP Nelson Koech, Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei and Soi MP Caleb Kositany accused Matiang’i and PS Karanja Kibicho of playing partisan politics aimed at undermining DP Ruto.
“We want to tell Matiang’i that we went into an election and there was no separate election for Ruto and Uhuru,” said MP Caleb Kositany.
They further called on President Uhuru Kenyatta to fire Matiang’i for publicly disrespecting DP Ruto or else they will go ahead to impeach him if he fails to do so.
“We call upon the president to reign on some of his Cabinet Secretaries. It is high time we hear his voice. It is like we are in a kindergarten where children do what they want,” said the legislators.
The MP’s seem to have been angered by the Interior CS’s comment a few days ago during a fundraiser, where he claimed that he was only accountable to the president who is the appointing authority.
“A homestead can’t have two heads. I am only accountable to the president who is the appointing authority,” said Matiang’i.
