Jubilee Vice-chairman David Murathe now says that the political differences between DP Ruto and President Kenyatta are irreconcilable.

Speaking to K24TV, Murathe claimed that DP Ruto had openly challenged the president during a recent Senate Parliamentary group meeting at State House.

Murathe claimed that Ruto was busy asking some senators to snub the said meeting in what was interpreted as an act of rebellion against his boss.

“It is not a secret, the DP was actively whipping Senators not to attend. That is the height of insolence, it is unheard of anywhere in the world. That actually is not only defiance but a threat to the President.,” Murathe said.

“It’s like asking the President ‘who do you think you are? You can call for a parliamentary group meeting and I can ask them not to come.’ Unfortunately, in this case, their numbers did not add up,”

At the same time, Murathe dismissed claims by the Ruto camp that Uhuru Kenyatta allies were planning to impeach the deputy president.

“This impeachment talk, I can tell you, is not on a card on the table. But as I had stated in an earlier interview, he should be careful with what he wishes for,” he added.

Murathe who has been a harsh critic of DP Ruto warned at the same time that should the current Jubilee clean up go to an impeachment, they have enough grounds to send the second-in-command packing.

“If they want us to go there, I believe there are enough grounds,” he added.
