DP Ruto has threatened Moi's family - ODM

The MPs declared DP Ruto as Kenya's enemy number one.

"Ruto has openly threatened the family of President Daniel arap Moi if the family does not give him political support. He is holding that family hostage," the MPs said in a hard hitting statement.

The MPs went further to state that the DP was an angry and bitter man who has also taken the people of Rift Valley and President Uhuru Kenyatta hostage.

"They are blackmailing President Uhuru Kenyatta and the people of Kenya that if Ruto’s wish to be president is not granted, they will target and evict the Kikuyu, Luhya, Abagusii and Luo living in the Rift Valley. The DP and his team want their way by hostage holding. Give me the presidency or your people are not safe. Do not change the law or your people won’t be safe.” That is the hostage holding agenda the DP and his team are pursuing," the statement read in part.

The MPs led by Zulekha Juma Hassan (Women Rep. Kwale), Florence Mutua (Women Rep. Busia), Anthony Oluoch, (MP Mathare), Geoffrey Osotsi, (Nominated) and Gladys Wanga (Women Rep. Homa Bay), said that Ruto was the biggest threat to Kenya's democracy, progress and stability.

"Ruto is holding the Government of Kenya hostage. We are all aware that in the last term, the government was unable to move on anything because of Ruto’s hostage antics. Senior public officers and other civil servants are constantly living in fear of losing their jobs because of Ruto’s phone calls," the legislators added.

They reiterated their calls to constitutional changes maintaining that the laws will have to change to perfect Kenya's systems of governance to keep such men and women in check and to strengthen devolved units so that everyone can benefit from the fruits of the land regardless of who is President.
