The MPs had on Wednesday accused the DP of sabotaging President Uhuru Kenyatta and the Building Bridges Initiative report, which is yet to be made public.

"The President should have powers to sack the Deputy President because sometimes the DP can be a 'crook'. We can’t have a deputy that is sabotaging the President all the time. I hope this was captured in the BBI report," Borabu MP Ben Momanyi stated.

Budalangi MP Raphael Wanjala added: "There is a deliberate attempt by Tangatanga group to besmirch the characters of CS Matiang’i, PS Kibicho and the Inspector General Hillary Mutyambai and other senior government officers for political gain."

DP Ruto responds to resignation call

DP Ruto turned the heat on handshake partner Raila Odinga calling him the real saboteur and referring to him as a "conman".

"Waheshimiwa (Honourables), the real saboteur is your master the people's conman who uses deceit to divide/destroy parties even Uhuru's Jubilee; the master of chaos who factors violence in election equations; the one who never accepts defeat. We'll stand with Uhuru and Jubilee against such dictators," the DP tweeted.

The tweet came just a day after he had demanded for a public pronouncement by former Prime Minister Odinga against use of violence as a tool in politics.

"Tinga/his party's trail of political conmanship/deceit from Kanu through Cord to Nasa and now heading to Jubilee;and litany of violence from 82'coup to Kibra cannot be hidden behind BBI. As a Minimum must 1) PUBLICLY renounce violence as a political tool.2)UNDERTAKE to accept defeat," the DP posted.
