Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) legislators from Siaya County have challenged Deputy President William Ruto to resign “if he is tired of being part of the presidency.”

The legislators led by Rarieda Member of Parliament Otiende Amollo, accused Ruto of using his allies to constantly attack the institution of the presidency which he is part of.

“William Samoei Ruto has chosen to send his foot soldiers to attack the institution of the Presidency, in other words he is a pastor sending the congregation to attack the church,” Otiende said.

The Rarieda lawmaker argued that if the DP has lost trust in the presidency, then he should resign and pave way for another person.

Otiende Amollo made the remarks during an ODM campaign rally at Kolali trading center in Ugenya constituency where he also laughed off the Deputy President’s claims that ODM leader Raila Odinga was out to split the Jubilee party.

“Raila and the President Uhuru Kenyatta shook hands for the betterment of this nation, you cannot attack the handshake unless you do not mean well for this country,” Otiende said.

His sentiments were echoed by Siaya Senator James Orengo who said that it is high time the deputy president realised that he must respect the president as his boss.

“Just like Otiende has said, if Ruto has found the fire in the kitchen too hot the he better leave the kitchen,” Orengo said.

Gem MP Elisha Odhiambo on the other hand encouraged the President to stay firm in the war against graft.

“We are challenging the President, do not be intimidated by thieves, as the President you are a symbol of our national unity,” Odhiambo said adding that, “ you have to stand out so that the public can trust and have confidence in your leadership, we will support you.”
