The quest to impeach Deputy President William Ruto is not a walk in the park as it involves marshalling numbers and could require an endorsement by the National Security Committee.

Governance experts say President Uhuru Kenyatta must first approve any motion seeking to remove the Deputy President since such an action comes with both national security and political consequences.

The Constitution says the Deputy President can be removed from office on grounds of physical or mental incapacity to perform his functions, gross violation of a provision of the Constitution or any other law and where there is serious reason to believe the DP has committed a crime under national or international law. He can also be impeached on any form of gross violation.
