ODM MPs want CS Macharia, Ruto’s aide Ki­bet and Muraguri to re­sign over graft

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics Parliament -

Seven ODM MPs yes­ter­day is­sued a seven-day ul­ti­ma­tum to Deputy Pres­i­dent Wil­liam Ruto’s aide Farouk Ki­bet, Trans­port CS James Macharia and PS Ni­cholas Muraguri to va­cate of­fice, fail­ing which they will lead na­tion­wide mass protests against them.

Ad­dress­ing a press con­fer­ence at Par­lia­ment Build­ing, An­drew To­boso (Butere), John Mbadi (Suba), Opiyo Wan­dayi (Ugunja), Oburu Oginga (Nom­i­nated), Peter Kaluma (Homa Bay Town), Ti­mothy Bosire (Ki­tutu Masaba) and TJ Ka­jwang’ (Ruaraka) de­manded Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta and Ruto apol­o­gise to Kenyans for “mis­lead­ing them on the Na­tional Youth Ser­vice scan­dal”.

“When the NYS scan­dal came to the pub­lic do­main, none other than Uhuru and Ruto came to the de­fence of Waig­uru when the op­po­si­tion raised ques­tions,” they said in a state­ment read by To­boso.

They said the scan­dal and Mafya House im­pli­cate Uhuru and Ruto’s close as­so­ci­ates and both should tell the na­tion what they know. “We de­mand ac­count­abil­ity,” the MPs said.
