Good morning Kenyans.
Deputy President William Ruto’s camp seems to be under siege after the latest move by the DPP.
Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa became the latest member of the group to be subjected to a court case.
DPP Noordin Haji gave the green light to prosecute Jumwa on murder charges.
The legislator was in 2019 involved in a fracas in Ganda where a man was shot dead.
The vocal politician for a second time this year will appear in court after just being let go in August after denying graft claims.

Major Hurdles in Uhuru, Ruto Reconciliation Bid
Vested interests within and outside the government are threatening to scuttle the frantic bid by clerics to reconcile President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto.
The Star has established influential state officers, political players, and power brokers from both sides of the political divide are out to scuttle the unity efforts urged by the international community.
Then there are the pro-handshake crusaders who believe Uhuru-Ruto reconciliation would deal a blow to their succession plan and the Building Bridges Initiative.
Rumours emerged that there was a plan in motion to see President Uhuru Kenyatta and Ruto settle their differences. Further reports claimed that if the deal is set to work, a second handshake may be sealed by the two warring leaders. The DP’s allies, however, came out and rubbished such claims.
