Nairobi - Machakos Senator Johnstone Muthama has told off Deputy President William Ruto for dismissing the proposed opposition team that will dialogue over the electoral body.
Ruto during the national prayer breakfast on Friday made fun of the five-member CORD team that was proposed by the coalition to lead negotiations.
The Deputy President singled out Muthama and Mombasa Women MP Mishi Mboko, noting that they are people who cannot engage in serious talks.
But reacting to Ruto's sentiments, Senator Muthama termed the remarks as 'very unfortunate'.

"It is sad and unfortunate that Ruto belittles other leaders who were elected just like him. It shows that he believes he has monopoly of opinions," said the vocal Senator.
"Kenyans should know that the Deputy President is the stumbling block to reforms in the country," he added at a press briefing Saturday at CORD headquarters in Nairobi.
Other members of the opposition team for negotiations include Siaya Senator James Orengo and MPs Eseli Simiyu (Tongaren) and Junet Mohamed (Suna East)
