Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has stated that he will continue to defend the interests of the Mt Kenya electorate, noting that they are the government’s greatest stakeholder.
Gachagua stated during a burial in Tigania East, Meru County, on Saturday that he will continue to campaign for an increase in the Mt Kenya residents’ government shares.
This is due to the investment they made by voting overwhelmingly for President William Ruto in last year’s presidential election.
“We intend to increase our stake in this government from 47% to nearly 60%.” Many individuals are concerned about our shareholding, yet we only have 47%. “We will expand until we have enough,” Gachagua stated.
Gachagua believes Mt Kenya people should receive a disproportionate share of government positions since they are the true proprietors of the government.
