Lawmakers allied to Deputy President William Ruto have dared President Uhuru Kenyatta to dissolve Parliament and call for fresh election.

The Jubilee MPs want the president to heed to Chief Justice David Maraga’s advice after MPs failed to enact the two thirds gender rule.

They told Kenyatta to adhere to the requirements of the constitution, saying they are ready to seek a fresh mandate from Kenyan voters.

“The Chief justice said we have failed to enact the gender rule, so we should go home and seek a fresh mandate,” said Kuria West MP Mathias Robi.

The MPs spoke while attending an interdenominational prayer service in Bumula, Bungoma County, on Sunday, in the company of DP Ruto.

Mathira MP Gachagua Nderitu asked the Luhya community to back Ruto’s 2022 presidential bid instead of ODM leader Raila Odinga.

Mumias East legislator Benjamin Washiali said those plotting against the “king of hustlers” ahead of the 2022 election will fail.

Washiali repeated claims by the Ruto camp of a plot to rig the 2022 poll, an allegation which Interior CS Fred Matiang’i already refuted.

On his part, DP Ruto appealed to Kenyans to back his presidential bid, accusing Raila of trashing his “hustler” donations to the poor.

"Poor people are the voters. I have to befriend them to ensure they also succeed in future," said Ruto.
