Kieni MP Kanini Kega has hinted out at penalties that Deputy President William Ruto might face for missing the COVID-19 conference held at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC). Speaking to the press on Tuesday, September 29, Kanini, who is also the National budget and appropriation committee chair, detailed that the DP should be penalized for disregarding his duties.
“There is absolutely no reason why the deputy president would skip a state event, so we want to tell him, we cannot be appropriating funds to your office yet you are not ready to discharge the responsibilities that have been given to you by the constitution of assisting and deputizing the president,” Kega stated.
Jubilee vice Chair David Murathe took Ruto’s absence to mean that he did not care about the party’s welfare. “You are a lame duck, I am heeding the ground, I do not need you,” Murathe interpreted Ruto’s message. In addition, he said that the DP had gone on record saying that he did not have any work allocated to him, and that Interior CS Fred Matiang’i had taken over his obligations.Follow us in social media:
