Ex-Kiambu Govenor William Kabogo now wants president Uhuru Kenyatta to come out clear on whether former Jubilee vice chair David Murathe was speaking on his behalf.
For two weeks, Murathe opened fire against the DP, insisting that he's unfit to succeed Uhuru, even though he dismissed claims that he was working under instructions from State House.
"I don't hold brief for the president. I have a right to speak what I feel is right. This has got nothing to do with the president," argued Murathe in an interview.
A number of MPs allied to Ruto openly demanded that Uhuru comes out clean on the remarks, with Murathe's close relationship with presidency put into question.
And Mr Kabogo said the president should come out clean on the matter so that he could regulate temperatures within the ruling party.
"Yes, many people know Murathe as a close ally to the president. Maybe the big boss should come out openly and disown him. This can maybe quell tension."
Although Murathe has since resigned, the president has however kept mum over the ongoing wrangles within his own party.
Murathe said he was ready to move to the Supreme Court to block Ruto and should the option fail, he'd have no option other than to lead troops out of Jubilee Party.
