"I have not esponded to Murathe's comments in Kenya and I will not do so on this platform.

"Let me also add that Murathe is free to pursue any course of action he deems fit and I am ready to address any accusations brought against me concerning my present and any future ventures," DP Ruto's brief response stated.

Proposed changes in Government

DP Ruto's address to the institute entailed a proposal to effect changes to the government.

He voiced his support for a parliamentary system of government that would have an executive President, a prime minister, and an official leader of opposition.

Dr Ruto, however, did not express any commitment to having a referendum in Kenya saying that the decision for a referendum before the next General Election is a topic worth discussing.
