Moses Kuria, in a Facebook post on Sunday, May 17th, claimed that the recently elected Senate Majority Whip Senator Irungu Kang’ata had received instructions to initiate the removal of Tharaka-Nithi Senator Prof. Kithure Kindiki as Senate Deputy Speaker.
The removal of Kindiki, Moses Kuria said, is meant to lay the ground for the looming impeachment of DP Ruto.
Moses Kuria wrote: “The Jubilee Party Owner Occupier has given express instruction to Sen Irungu Kangata to initiate the removal of Prof Kithure Kindiki as Deputy Speaker in the Senate so as to pave way for the impeachment of William Ruto.”
“Like Job, we refuse to give up on our Living God. We shall overcome. God will not forsake the righteous to appease the evil.”
His allegations come barely a week after DP Ruto allies Senators Kipchumba Murkomen (Elgeyo-Marakwet) and Susan Kihika (Nakuru) were ousted as Senate Majority Leader and Whip respectively.
They were stripped of their positions during a meeting chaired by President Kenyatta at State House, Nairobi on Monday, May 11th and replaced with Senators Samuel Poghisio (West Pokot) and Kang’ata (Murang’a).
The constitution says the DP can be impeached on various grounds including a gross violation of a provision of this Constitution or any other law, the commission of a crime under national or international law, and gross misconduct.
