Jubilee MPs call for DP Ruto's ouster, threaten to impeach him and send him home [Video]
Jubilee MPs breathing fire on DP Ruto as wrangles get nasty
Speaking on Saturday at Kathiani Constituency, the MPs under the movement identifying itself as #TeamKenya led by Nyeri Town MP Ngunjiri Wambugu veteran politician Maina Kamanda and Kathiani MP Robert Mbui threatened that they may soon explore Article 150 on the 'Removal of Deputy President'.
“The coming together of President Kenyatta, Raila,Kalonzo and Mudavadi has exposed the thief and now we are all shaming the thief publicly and that’s why you hear the thief saying that he is being targeted unfairly. Who mentioned you (the thief)” Kamanda declared.
The MPs alleged that previously there was confusion in identifying the corrupt who were looting billions from the public but this is no longer the case.
According to Wambugu the thief is known to everyone following the handshake deal between President Kenyatta, Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka and Musalia Mudavadi.
"This war against corruption will not stop! It will be messy and untidy... but it will be done. Period. #Kitaeleweka," Nyeri Town MP Ngunjiri asserted.
The MP asserted that while the President is not a thief, the real thief is close to the president and hinted at putting in place measures to send DP Ruto home.
According to article 149, a sitting Deputy President can be removed on the grounds of physical or mental incapacity to perform the functions of the office or through an impeachment.

MPs back Uhuru's remarks as DP Ruto’s convenes meeting with allies
The team of legislators also threw their weight behind President Uhuru Kenyatta’s remarks that nobody -not even his “closest political ally” - would stand in the way of the anti-graft fight.
The statement caused tension in Jubilee with some analyst opining that the “closest political ally” referred to the DP.
In the wake of the public clash that saw the President and his deputy reading from different scripts, reports indicate that Ruto convened a meeting with his closest allies at his Karen home to deliberate on the scathing remarks.
