Activist Okiya Omtatah moved to court seeking DP William Ruto's resignation as he eyes the presidency.

In the petition on Monday, Omtatah says that any public officer, including a sitting deputy president, a sitting governor, a sitting deputy governor, a sitting MP, and a sitting MCA must vacate office before nomination as a presidential candidate.

"A declaration that a sitting president, a sitting deputy president, a sitting governor, and a sitting deputy governor cannot be elected to elective positions other than the ones they hold," he said in his petition.

According to Omtatah, a sitting deputy president, a sitting governor, a sitting deputy governor, a sitting MP, and a sitting MCA is not qualified for nomination as a presidential candidate.
