Orengo supports Murathe

2022 politics heating up

Orengo supports Murathe on Ruto's retirement in 2022

Senate Minority Leader James Orengo has supported ex-Jubilee Vice Chairman in calling for the retirement of Deputy President William Ruto in 2022.

Orengo said the DP should retire alongside President Kenyatta and throw aside his 2022 ambitions,

"I want to tell Ruto not to be misled by selfish political interests and retire with Uhuru in 2022,” the Siaya Senator said.

Senior Counsel

The Senior Counsel said Ruto was not qualified to contest the Presidency having served in the Presidency as DP for two terms.

He spoke in his home county of Siaya during the burial of politician Okello Gunda.

Orengo’s argument was similar to a similar one advanced by Murathe who said the DP and the President were a pair who should not serve for more than two terms.

The former Jubilee Vice Chairman had on Saturday said he would seek Orengo’s services and move to the Supreme to obtain an advisory opinion that will bar Ruto from contesting the Presidency in 2022.
