The contents of Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua’s new international travel agreement with President William Ruto have been released.
This is after they abruptly left the country, leaving no one in command; a mistake he conceded was too serious since Raila Odinga might easily have used it to overthrow them.
Gachagua revealed during the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) women’s congress that the two Kenya Kwanza leaders decided not to leave the country on overseas tours again at the same time.
“You want me to take over (while Ruto is away).” When we were away, several of the persons we left behind misbehaved. We have now agreed that when he goes on a foreign tour, I will stay in the nation, and when he returns, I will go. And there is no problem,” he said, much to the pleasure of the delegates.
He also claimed that he and Ruto share similar views, as he has often said in previous public appearances since news of his feud with Ruto arose.
“President William Ruto and I have known each other for over 20 years.” “Our friendship transcends the presidency,” he contended. “Prophets of doom cannot create a wedge in this government,” he went on to say.
In response to allegations that he was feuding with Ruto, Gachagua revealed that he had attended a National Security Council meeting with Ruto that morning. He attended a Cabinet meeting on Thursday and presented measures, which Ruto approved on Friday.
According to Gachagua, Ruto will leave him in command of the administration until his return, as required by the Constitution.
