Deputy President William Ruto's allies, on Saturday, November 30, reportedly made a secret plot against President Uhuru Kenyatta during their two-day retreat in Embu.
According to a report by People Daily Newspaper, the team, which comprised of some 29 members of the National Assembly and senators, vowed to snub Uhuru's meetings citing humiliation.
Quoting an MP who attended the event, the paper further detailed that the leaders demanded that a list of scheduled speakers of the presidential events must be availed to them in advance.
"I can assure you that today onward, you will see Central Kenyan MPs reacting differently. We have been humiliated for too long," stated the MP.
As part of their resolutions during a two-day retreat in Embu, the lawmakers demanded a separate referendum should not be pursued and if necessary, it should run alongside the 2022 general elections.
The leaders, led by Embu Senator Njeru Ndwiga, further expressed that the implementation of the report should be carried out by a parliamentary task force and that it should prioritise economic development instead of adding more executive positions.
They argued that a separate referendum would be a waste of task payers' money which would be channeled to help the youth as well as farmers.
Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen, who is a bonafide Ruto ally, lamented on Wednesday, November 27, during the launch of the Building Bridges Initiative at Bomas of Kenya that the list of speakers at the event was hand-selected to favour Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
"We must have an honest discussion, even the way Junet you are running the program, we must have an honest discussion about it. Your Excellency, it would be a lie for me to leave this stage without saying that this program has been skewed to leave out people with different opinions," stated the senator.
He was reacting to a statement by Suna East MP Junet Mohamed who had welcomed him on stage claiming that the event was meant to discuss the BBI report and not the problems of Jubilee.
