President Uhuru Kenyatta delivered a scathing attack on William Ruto during the Sagana Three conference, characterizing him as dishonest and crooked. In response to the charges, Rigathi Gachagua stated that it was unwise to begin disclosing your relationship’s secrets after you disagreed with someone. Gachagua claimed that while working as Uhuru’s assistant, they did so many things that if they were revealed, the world would be shook.
Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua has chastised President Uhuru Kenyatta for leveling serious allegations against his estranged deputy William Ruto during the Sagana Three meeting.
Gachagua stated that it was long been planned that Ruto’s running mate would be from the Mt Kenya region, and that Amani National Congress leader Musalia Mudavadi was fully aware of this when he opted to join forces with the DP.
The Mathira lawmaker stated on Monday, February 28, that the United Democratic Alliance would conduct a National Delegates Conference on March 15, 2022, to reveal the second in command as the presidential aspirant.
Despite the fact that Mudavadi and Moses Wetang’ula have joined the UDA, he stated that there is a “wide consensus” that Ruto is the best presidential candidate.
As far as I’m concerned, there is widespread agreement that William Ruto is the best choice. “As agreed upon, the running buddy will return from the mountain at the appropriate time,” he stated. According to Gachagua, it is yet unclear how Mudavadi will benefit from his affiliation with the UDA.
“When they came for discussion, we were very forthright with Musalia and Wetang’ula because we are honest people. They were told that we had agreed already that the running mate is from the mountain and they came with that knowledge,” he said.
FUNDING UHURU’S CAMPAIGN
Gachagua also claimed in the same interview that he funded President Uhuru Kenyatta’s campaign in 2013.Gachagua claimed that as Uhuru’s assistant, he never questioned the source of Uhuru’s money until he sided with the DP. Gachagua questioned why the president did not dump Ruto ahead of the 2017 elections if he knew he was a thief, rather than using Ruto to ascend to the office. The legislator went on to say that he knows Uhuru better than anyone else in the current political context.
“I stayed with Uhuru Kenyatta as his personal assistant. I gave him money for his campaign in 2013. He knows am a businessman. He never asked me the source then. All those years I stayed with him his government did not have a problem with me until I said I can not leave Ruto,” said Gachagua.
