Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa has been one of the first lawmakers to respond to claims of a looming attempt to oust parliamentary leaders engaging themselves in early politics.
This follows reports that President Uhuru Kenyatta's supporters in the Jubilee Party are seeking to expel DP Ruto's allies holding top positions.
Barasa, a close Ruto ally and a member of the Tanga-tanga team has dared the people plotting such motived to bring it on, saying that they have enough numbers in both houses to shoot it down.
“That could be a plot by a few individuals with self-entitlement. But we are telling them to bring it on," he told the Monday Standard.
This comes only hours after Tiaty lawmaker William Kamket who is opposed to the DP warned of the same, hinting that only the DP might remain since he cannot be sacked.
“Time for talk is over. For those who are not following what the President is saying, they should begin their journey out of Government.
Since the Deputy President is protected by the Constitution and cannot be sacked, his generals, beginning with the Leader of Majority in the Senate, Leader of Majority in the National Assembly and some committee chairpersons, should leave immediately,” he said.
This comes amid a said widening rift between the President and his Deputy, though Uhuru has remained silent on the party's turbulences while Ruto insists that all is well.
It is not yet clear who will be entrusted with the role of leading the ouster motions, at a time when Uhuru seems to have pulled members of the opposition to his side.
