Former Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama has dared President Uhuru Kenyatta to break his silence on Deputy President William Ruto being accused of corruption.
Muthama said the President should come out and confirm or deny claims against his deputy.
He said there is a need for the President to give his position on the claims since they have been together for a long period of time.
"Ruto ni naibu rais wako, Rais tuelezee msimamo wako kuliko kuimba wimbo moja hadi mwaka uishe (Ruto is your deputy. President, tell us your position instead of singing the same song until the year ends, "said Muthama.
Muthama spoke during a church service at AIC Kyamutheke in Mua, Mavoko Sub-county on Sunday.
He stated that the Parliament should have a vote of no confidence against Ruto if the President confirms that the former is corrupt.
"Kama ni mwizi aite bunge impatie kura ya kwenda nyumbani (President should call on Parliament to vote Ruto out if he is a thief), it's simple. We also want to solve other things," Muthama added.
Muthama said the President's silence over corruption claims on Ruto is questionable.
He urged Uhuru to 'tighten the rope' on the fight against corruption to ensure public funds are not embezzled.
"It's not that time when we would fight the government whenever it pursued graft suspects. So, the President should not relent on this fight," he said.
Muthama added that the government should ensure accountability in the fight against corruption.
He said it is then that Kenyans will believe things are going well.
