  • Lugari MP Ayub Savula, who is leading an impeachment motion against Deputy President William Ruto, on Saturday, January 30, addressed the DP when they attended the same event.

    Speaking at an event in Matungu, Savula who is ANC deputy party leader made his remarks in response to a statement by former CS Rashid Echesa who dared him over his impeachment plans.

    "You cannot dare remove Ruto from office, he is the president of the hustlers," Echesa declared.

    On his part, the Lugari MP stated that he would not be threatened to back down on his plans as he had higher political aspirations in 2022.

    He further stated that the DP had gained support from the Western region and it was time to return the favour by supporting a Luhya for the Presidency.

    "I am planning on running for governor of Kakamega and It is time for Ruto to support Mudavadi for the presidency of Kenya," Savula maintained.

    At the same event, DP Ruto steered clear of the debate opting to speak about development in the area and national politics.

    He called out the community for reaching out to him when they needed development projects but they abandoned him when it came to votes.

    "When you want to build schools, churches and other projects, you call me but when it comes to supporting me, the script is flipped," he stated.

    Ruto added that he was involved with the progress of the area, more than other local leaders who were asking for their support.

    Savula had earlier in January 2021 asked Deputy President William Ruto to resign or face impeachment over his remarks which he stated were against President Uhuru Kenyatta.

    ANC deputy party leader stated that the DP's attack on President Uhuru Kenyatta warranted calls for his resignation.

    "He called the President a tribalist. How can you say your boss is a tribalist?" he posed.
