Miguna To Ruto On Resignation: You Stole Elections Together Make Sure You Sink With Him



Pressure continue to pile up on the DP Ruto to resign in what proponents say is cultivation of his track record. In a statement issued today by legislators allied to the President and Raila, they’ve accused the DP of undermining the presidency through his reckless statements that they deem disrespectful.

“The Deputy President William Ruto has declared war against established state institutions some of them which are creatures of the Constitution, just like his high office. The police (which includes DCI), and the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions are constitutional bodies. The Deputy President is the second highest ranking member of the National Security Council which exercises supervisory control over national security organs and ipso facto he is well placed to deal with questions or challenges that may arise concerning the operations of security organs.

The Deputy President should therefore be the last person to complain against government institutions in funerals and roadside pronouncements with a loud megaphone. That can only undermine the authority and mandate of government institutions and may well constitute an offence against public order.

The Deputy President has questioned the capacity and mandate of the investigatory and prosecutorial organs of state. These persistent attacks have targeted numerous public officers including Fred Matiangi, Karanja Kibicho, George Kinoti and Noordin Haji who serve at the core of public service functions and operations.

He has claimed that the system has been mobilized “to bring him down” and persistently alleged that his life is in danger. In recent attacks he has not spared the Head of State either with a crude and sinister reference to the purported existence of a deep state. These attacks have now peaked with the creation of a team, directly loyal to William Ruto, within the ruling party, with the objective of insidiously eroding the prestige and honour of the President of the Republic and the Leader of his Party and to fight the government from within. This is unacceptable and ultimately renders the government dysfunctional and divided.

With the drums for Ruto to resign getting louder, Lawyer Miguna Miguna has warned Ruto against succumbing to pressure telling him to stay put. “Don’t make the mistake Jaramogi Oginga Odinga made in 1966. Make sure you sink with Despot Uhuru Kenyatta to the bottom of the abyss. You stole elections and public resources together. You must not allow Uhuru Kenyatta to swim to safety after destroying Kenya.” He told Ruto.
