Siaya senator James Orengo has reminded Deputy President William Ruto of a controversial law he passed, which is now working against him.

The senate Minority Leader said Ruto and his allies supported the law that has come back to haunt them.

Orengo revealed that it was DP Ruto and his allies who passed the law that allows police to use teargas against people.

“If he sees teargas he should know that that was the law he passed,” Orengo said.

The Nasa Coalition strongly opposed the laws and even moved to court to have it struck out.

Only sections of the bill were declared unconstitutional.

Ruto’s supporters were teargassed in Kisii on Thursday and his rally dispersed by security officers.

Orengo was speaking in Kisii during the burial of the father of former TV Journalist Denis Onsarigo.

He also asked the second in command to table any differences he has with Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiangi before President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Orengo, a key ally of ODM leader Raila Odinga, said Ruto should table any such differences before the cabinet.

Orengo said he was aware that Ruto came under fire during a cabinet meeting on Thursday.

There have been claims that the meeting was stormy as the cabinet discussed resolutions on tough security measures to contain growing political animosity in the country.

“I want to tell Ruto that if you have any problems with Matiangi, table it in the cabinet. During the cabinet meeting, [on Thursday] people started asking questions and Ruto could not answer,” Orengo said.
