Defiant pro-Ruto MPs reveal chilling warning and visit by state operatives as war in Jubilee escalate
DP Ruto yesterday warned Jubilee party officials as his allies demanded for Tuju’s resignation over leaked audio
Nation quoted the vocal lawmaker alleging threats and intimidation and stating that she was visited by emissaries.
“The State operatives have sent emissaries warning me to either keep quite or I face them” Ngirici stated.
She claimed that undisclosed powerful individuals have resorted to using Kenya Revenue Authority to frustrate them and implicate them in tax evasion scandals.
"They are using the Kenya Revenue Authority to target us by claiming that we don’t pay taxes but we are ready and waiting for them,” said Ms Ngirici.
Ngirici who is a loyal supporter of DP Ruto asserted that she will be at the forefront in opposing any bid to extend President Uhuru Kenyatta’s bid.
“The plan by a section of leaders is to have the constitution changed and extend the term limit for the President but we shall oppose it,” she said.
Her remarks were echoed by Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro who also alleged that he received visitors from the Auditor General’s office in what they allege is a scheme targeting them for supporting DP Ruto’s 2022 bid and his political activities.
Nyoro stated that ‘guests from the Auditor General’s office’ visited him to inspect books of accounts relating to the Kiharu National Government Constituency Development Fund (NGCDF).
Pressure mounts on Tuju to resign
The developments come at a time when tension is high in Jubilee party with a section of MPs demanding for the resignation of party Secretary General Raphael Tuju over a leaked audio recording of a telephomne conversation.
The MPs led by Alice Wahome (Kandara), Laikipia Woman Rep Catharine Waruguru and Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika faulted Tuju for causing confusion that has rocked the party and demanded that he resigns.
The legislators who were speaking at the Kitale ASK Showground singled him out as the person responsible for the continued wrangles within the party, saying he should quit the party and pave the way for new leadership that will steer the party to greater heights.
"He has betrayed a government we founded. There is a lot of confusion and division in Jubilee and the person responsible is Tuju. Let him resign," said Wahome.
