Aldai Mp Corneli Serem has urged leaders allied to Deputy President William Ruto to remain unbowed against trumped up charges and intimidation unleashed by the government.
Claiming that the powerful state officers in the office President Uhuru Kenyatta are blatantly misusing the independent institutions to manage politics, Mp Serem faulted urging to be clawback to the hard earned democracy the country enjoys since the inception of multiparty state.
In an exclusive interview with North Rift Mirror, the lawmaker accused Interior CS Fred Matiangi and Security PS Karanja Kibicho of ill-using their positions to intimidate the politicians supporting Dp Ruto’s presidential candidacy.
“I want to tell them that we will not be intimidated even if they chase us around day and night. All will be in vein and we will be vindicated in courts against trumped up flimsy charges they implicated amongst some of us,” he said.
Mp Serem statements came in the backdrop of Mathira Mp Rigathi Gachagua arrest and put in the police custody over the alleged Sh. 12 Billion he swindled from the state agencies and the county governments.
Mp Gachagua is one of the deputy president’s lieutenants from central that led Tangatanga troops, who campaigned for UDA candidate John Wanjiku against the runner up Jubilee flag bearer Kariri Njama in the recently ended Kiambaa parliamentary by-elections.
“The powerful government officials should know that power is temporary and no one is above the law. It will come a time when individuals will account for the impunities and chaos meted to the citizens,” Mp Serem, one of Ruto’s political foot soldiers in the North Rift region.
Amid the boiling succession politics in the country, the outspoken legislator called upon the Mps affiliated to the UDA party to stay calm to avert unnecessary political sideshows that would compromise with peace and coexistence.
