the text message DP Ruto wrote to MPs who defied his orders

President Uhuru Kenyatta has summoned four Jubilee MPs who defied Deputy President William Ruto’s directive to resign from committees of Parliament they were elected to chair.

The MPs are Nandi Hills’ Alfred Keter, Moiben’s Silas Tiren, Marakwet MP David Bowen and Emgwen’s Alex Kosgey.

The four were elected chairpersons of the Labour and Social Welfare,Agriculture, Environment and Natural Resources, and Trade, Industry and Cooperatives committees respectively, by Jubilee party legislators.

They were summoned through a text message sent by DP Ruto yesterday;

 “Mheshimiwa, This is to invite you for a consultative meeting of the Environment and Natural Resources, Agriculture and Livestock, Labour and Parliamentary Broadcasting Committee with the Party Leader HE President Uhuru Kenyatta tomorrow, Thursday, 18th January 2018 at 8.30am, at State House, Nairobi. Please be punctual,” the sms read.

Later in the afternoon, Ruto sent another message asking MPs to confirm their attendance.

“Mheshimiwa please confirm availability for the meeting at State House Nairobi Tomorrow (today) at 8.30am,” his second text message said.

Ruto had met and spoken to the four separately and even convened a meeting last Wednesday at his Weston Hotel with other Rift Valley MPs where he demanded that the four step down. But the MPs openly told him off and refused to resign.

It is understood the President and his deputy are planning to instruct the committee members who elected the four to pass votes of no-confidence resolutions in the four chairmen, to remove them.

The four chairmen told the Star, however, that they would not make it to the meeting because they had various commitments that could not be cancelled.
