In the recent Cabinet change, President William Ruto demoted Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua and elevated Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi.
On Wednesday, Ruto relocated the Ministry of Foreign Affairs from Gachagua’s office to Mudavadi, sparking concerns about the power dynamics within Kenya Kwanza.
However, in an interview yesterday, Gachagua stated that there is no power struggle between him and Mudavadi, implying that they converse and share ideas on a daily basis.
Following the recent Cabinet rearrangement, he justified his relationship with President William Ruto, stating he consulted him beforehand.
He also stated that his connection with his employer has not changed because he has been given substantial tasks in the administration.
“Ruto and I are always talking, and if you look at the work he has given me, it’s a lot, so there’s no power play between Mudavadi and me.” “If I notice a problem area, I approach him and we talk about it,” he explained.
“President William Ruto and I are practically inseparable.” We communicate on a daily basis. My rapport with the President is excellent. He has entrusted me with considerable responsibility because he is aware of my abilities. We will continue to work for Kenyans until our tenure expires.”
