Rigathi Gachagua, Deputy President, has hinted at the origins of his feud with Public Service Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria.
Gachagua, who is currently embroiled in a supremacy battle with CS Kuria over Mt Kenya kingpin status, stated at a church service in Kiambu County that he and Kuria fell out after he supported Kiambu Governor Kimani Wamatangi for the top county job in the run-up to the 2022 general elections.
Kuria was running for Kiambu Governor at the time, with Patrick ‘Jungle’ Wainaina, Tujibebe Party Leader William Kabogo, and immediate past Governor James Nyoro.
They were eventually defeated by Wamatangi.
“All those who vied against Wamatangi hate me to date for supporting him,” he said.
CS Kuria was accused by the Deputy President of building a mountain out of a molehill in order to create political upheaval.
“I don’t have time to wish for another office.” “I have a lot of work to do, and I don’t have time for that kingship nonsense,” he said.
Gachagua insisted that his present focus is on delivering for Kenyans alongside President William Ruto.
