Kenyan senator Orengo Talks Tough, Plans to Impeach DP Ruto In Two Weeks
There has been an existence of details showing plans to impeach the Deputy President Williams Ruto in two weeks. This is coming in the wake of the murder of Sergeant Kipyegon Kenei and also Echesa’s Sh40 Billion fake arms deal scam which all took place in the deputy president’s office. A team of legislators led by Senator James Orengo while speaking in Siaya stated that they will by all means find constitutional means to deal with the deputy president basing their argument that an impeachment which will occur in two weeks will definitely serve him right. According to him, the public should watch because in two weeks’ time, they will start the process that will see the legislators deal with the deputy president. He stressed that the various scandals linked to the deputy president has brought dishonor to the office of the Deputy President which has become an office where crooks meet to plot and carry out their criminal activities. Oregon who happens to be the Senate minority leader also took issues with the deputy president over his reaction to the recent scandals saying that such demands a series of investigations.
On the other hand, the deputy president is showing a nonchalant attitude to the issue by making statements and comments about the whole issue and this is unbelievable. It looks as if he went into power without fully understanding the tenets of the law. According to Orengo, he hope the deputy president is being investigated as there is enough evidence to provide backings for the investigation. The deputy president has maintained a rigid stand saying that the scandals and investigations linked to his office are part of a scheme to tarnish his image.
After the burial of Sergeant Kipyegon Kenei, DP Ruto took to his Twitter page in an angry rant alleging of a scheme to put him out of office soon and when it did not work out, they resulted to killing. He referred to the individuals involved as the system. He also accused the Directorate of Criminal investigations of working and associating with individuals keen on bringing him down in order to discredit his office and eventually destroy it. According to him, the DCI has been deployed for political reasons and to write me down and as well destroy my office with all manner of nonsense. Those planning this will not succeed which is why they resulted to killing but there is a God in heaven.
Furthermore, Oregon has been on the forefront on the call to impeach the deputy president. It can be recalled that on 24th March, 2019, he made a similar remark calling for the sack of the deputy president in the wake of the multi-million scandals that rocked his office and individuals close to him as out of the sic corruption cases that have come to light in recent past, four of these cases are on ministries headed by those perceived to be allied to the deputy president.
