Ainabkoi Member of Parliament William Chepkut has dismissed immediate former Jubilee Party vice-chairman David Murathe's threats to move to Supreme Court to bar Deputy President William Ruto from vying for the presidency in 2022.

In a post on his official Facebook page, Chepkut said nobody can stop DP Ruto from seeking to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta, not even the courts. 

"Which constitution is David Murathe reading? Someone remind him that the only way to stop this is by VOTING! William Samoei Ruto has a right to pursue his political ambitions legally, in one way or another, William Ruto will vie for the presidency, not David Murathe or any courts can stop him,” reads Chepkut's post.

Murathe has remained firm on his stand on the DP Ruto’s 2022 presidential ambitions insisting that he should retire from politics in 2022 at the time when president Uhuru Kenyatta will be leaving the office after serving for two terms.

He said that he is ready to move to the Supreme Court to bar the self-proclaimed hustler from vying for the country’s top seat in 2022. 

Murathe who has since resigned as the vice chairman for the Jubilee party is considered a close ally to President Kenyatta and his remarks has sparked a wave of divisions between DP Ruto’s allies and those allied to the head of state.
