A section of politicians across the political divide have hit out at Deputy President William Ruto over his recent remarks that he is being targeted by the state.

Addressing the press at a Nairobi hotel, the leaders drawn from Jubilee, ODM, ANC, Wiper, Ford Kenya and KANU parties accused the DP of conducting himself in a manner in which borders on disrespect to the presidency.

In a bicameral statement read by Baringo County Woman representative Gladwell Cherioyot and Deputy Minority leader in the National Assembly and Kathiani constituency MP Mbui Robert, the legislators have called on Deputy President William Ruto to resign for allegedly disrespecting President Uhuru Kenyatta. They further accused the DP of declaring war against established State institutions.
