On Saturday, Orengo hinted at sponsoring an impeachment motion against Ruto over investigations into Sh39 billion arms scandal and Sergent Kenei’s murder.
Daily Nation reported that Orengo, Raila’s close ally is considering a constitutional means in dealing with the DP.
“Watch this space. In two weeks we will start the process that will see us deal with him,” the daily publication quoted Orengo who was speaking in Siaya at the funerals of University of Nairobi’s Prof Gilbert Ogutu and politician Omolo Rading’s son.
Ruto on Saturday turned onto the government, accusing its leadership of elaborate scheme to finish him off.
The DP accused unnamed government officials of boasting that he will not be around for long.
He claimed that the murder of his aid Kenei was a double ploy to set him up against his community while also scandalizing his office.
Murkomen and other like-minded politicians have been accusing the ODM party of using BBI to undermine DP Ruto’s 2022 presidential bid.
