2 min read

Mau Mau fighters from the Central region have moved to court seeking the removal of Deputy President William Ruto from office.

The leaders, led by Michael Kurungia, accused Ruto of failing to fulfill his responsibilities as DP.

Kurungia also accused DP Ruto of severe misconduct in an urgent application, alleging that he was criticizing the administration in which he serves.

“The Deputy President William Ruto has failed to perform the functions conferred to him by the Constitution,” Kurungia said.

Ruto was also accused by the Mau Mau fighters of illegally exploiting state funds and resources to campaign ahead of the August 9 poll.

According to Kurungia, the DP has been doing several responsibilities in violation of the pledge he signed before taking office.

The Mau Mau combatants want the court to declare Ruto guilty of violating the Kenyan Constitution’s Oaths and Statutory Declaration Act, Cap 15(ii).

Ruto has also been accused of violating Article 147(1) (2) of the Constitution by not acting as their principal aide to the President, according to the organization.

They said Ruto is, instead, performing his own functions.

“Unless the orders sought are granted, the public is going to suffer irreparable loss and damage,” the court documents read.

Kurungia wants the court to restrain the DP from using his office and his residential home in conducting meetings of the United Democratic Alliance until the case is heard and determined.

The case will be heard on April 28.
