Gachagua Makes Passionate Appeal to Uhuru

  • Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua on Sunday, March 19, pleaded with retired President Uhuru Kenyatta to speak to Azimio leader Raila Odinga to call off the planned mass action.

    Speaking during an interdenominational service in Nandi County, Gachagua argued that Uhuru owed it to Kenyans given that he was the alleged cause of the high cost of living.

    He remarked that Kenyans made the ex-head of state a king by electing him twice as president when he was not ripe for the job and asked him to return a favor.

    “I know you demean us and think that we are nothing, which is okay. But please, I am begging you, within the few remaining hours, to look for your brother and tell him to stop that nonsense of telling people to come and destroy property.

    “It is ungodly and cannot be acceptable in a normal society. We are asking this will all due respect and if he grants this request, we will have no problem with him,” Gachagua remarked.

    The outspoken DP further dragged Uhuru’s family into the tiff between the Kenya Kwanza government and Azimio.

    “How ungrateful can you be with your brother to fund Azimio to create chaos in Nairobi yet you have so much property? What do you have against poor people and the little that they have?” Gachagua claimed.

    Meanwhile, he warned President Ruto against succumbing to Odinga’s demands stating that if he entered into any handshake, then the Head of State would be answerable to him.

    On his part, the Head of State maintained that he would not bend backward to negotiate with leaders who resorted to using blackmail to have issues addressed.

    Ruto clarified that for him to have a sit down with any leader, he would have to do it within the confines of the Constitution. Nonetheless, he maintained that the police will do their work on March 20.

    Earlier, Nairobi County Police Commander Adamson Bungei declared the planned mass action illegal, maintaining that Azimio did not follow due process.

    However, Odinga rubbished the claims and shared a letter the coalition wrote to the police boss notifying him of peaceful protests in the Nairobi Metropolitan area.
