MP threatens to table motion to oust Ruto

12 May 2015, 13:28 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi – Homa Bay Town MP, Peter Kaluma has threaten to file a motion when National Assembly resumes from recess to have Deputy President, William Ruto removed from office over a myriad of corruption allegations against him.

Kaluma said the government’s silence on reported mega-corruption allegations against Ruto is an abuse to leadership and integrity provisions envisaged in the Constitution’s Chapter 6 despite the Jubilee administration’s pronounced commitment to fight corruption.

The Homa Bay Town MP therefore vowed to push for Ruto’s ouster next month when the House resumes its business if he doesn’t voluntarily step aside to allow for investigations by the anti-corruption commission.

“It cannot be that the higher you go in leadership, the more you may engage in corruption without consequence. This ugly trend makes the people of Kenya, more so our vulnerable children, to associate leadership with corruption contrary to the constitutional provisions on leadership and integrity,” said Kaluma.

He said it is ironical for the Jubilee administration to ask public officers implicated in some flimsiest corruption claims to step aside for investigation yet no action is taken against Ruto whose name ‘blazes the trail of every conceivable scandal.’

“We lose more than one half of our national budget to corruption each year. On behalf of the people of this country, I will be bringing a petition under Article 95 (5) as read together with Article 10 and Chapter 6 of the Constitution to House to have our Parliament review the conduct of Deputy President William Ruto and resolve on his removal from office if he does not comply and leave office on his own volition,” warned Kaluma.

Corruption claims against Ruto include; the controversial “Hustler’s Jet” trip that cost millions of the taxpayer’s money, the 124-acre Karen land and the Lang’ata Primary School children’s playground grab saga, private land grab of an Eldoret resident who won the case in court against Ruto, and the latest KES 28 billion upgrade tender for Moi Referral Hospital.
