Amani National Congress leader Musalia Mudavadi has called on President Uhuru Kenyatta to keep his word and sack Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich.
Mudavadi used the President’s speech during this year’s state of the nation address as his point of reference.
President Kenyatta had said that any member of his cabinet secretary found to be involved in graft and arrested should willingly resign or he would fire them himself.
Mudavadi has now challenged Uhuru that the time to keep his word has come and he has no option but to let Rotich go.
He also urged the head of state to stop focussing on matters pertaining to his famous handshake with Raila Odinga and tackle the issue of corruption.
Mudavadi, however, applauded the Director of Public Prosecution and Directorate of Criminal Investigation for their effort in the war against graft.
The former minister of finance also said he will not take up any job offer from the President as he is focussed on leading the opposition faction.
“We cannot all be in the government. I am more focused on being the leader of the opposition as ANC has been playing that role,” he told NTV.
This comes hours after Treasury CS Henry Rotich and his Principal Secretary Kamau Thugge were placed behind bars over the alleged irregular advance payments for construction of Kimwarer and Arror dams.
