Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has spoken out in response to allegations that he has a feud with his boss, President William Ruto.
Gachagua disputed rumors of a rift with Ruto caused by the recent cabinet change and a statement in which the Head of State chastised the second in command for his infamous’shareholders’ insult during a church service in Nandi County.
“Our government led by William Ruto is steady and very stable, there is no problem and there will be none.”
“The president and I are not foolish, we are great friends and even if you hear us talking differently, it is still the same thing,” he said.
The DP also pledged his support for Ruto in the 2027 General Elections, saying he will mobilise Mt Kenya locals to vote for President William Ruto to the death.
“I want to tell these people (opposition), straight in the face, please don’t waste your time, there will be no division in this government, President William Ruto and I talk the same language, we consult, we agree and we move on and the President is taking us in the right direction,” Gachagua said in a statement.
Despite criticism for his’shareholders’ stance,’ the Deputy President insisted that he is unapologetic in his demand for additional resources and development for regions that overwhelmingly supported President Ruto.
“I am unapologetic and demand those who believed in William Ruto and supported him to a man have every right to benefit immensely from his government, and if that can bring a problem so be it,” he went on to say.
