Raila Junior Odinga who is rarely involved in politics has aired his opinion on senior legal counsel James Orengo’s decision to present motion to impeach the Deputy President William Ruto.
He has stated that the minority leader is within his right to bring a motion of no confidence just like any other Kenyan can do stating that it doesn’t necessarily have to be a position of his party ODM.
Siaya Senator James Orengo pledged on Sunday to institute an impeachment motion against Deputy President William Ruto.
Orengo said a Deputy President can be kicked out of office if it’s found that he or she has violated the Constitution or any other law.
The Senator said the country cannot move forward with a Deputy President who is at the centre, any time a corruption case is mentioned.
Addressing Ugenya residents during campaigns for the Ugenya by-election, Orengo said Article 150 of the Constitution is enough to throw out DP Ruto. He was campaigning for Chris Karana.
None of the claims against Mr Ruto have been proven in court or elsewhere, and there has not been any official communication that he is under any investigation, but Mr Orengo said his move had the support of a good number of legislators across the political divide.
