Sunday, January 30, 2022 – Mathira Member Parliament (MP), Rigathi Gachagua, has told President Uhuru Kenyatta to be ready to answer hard questions when he visits Mt Kenya in the coming days.
Speaking during a rally in Kirinyaga yesterday, the lawmaker, who was Uhuru’s personal assistant in the 2000s, also asked him to explain how he intends to make Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga the fifth president of Kenya.
“Mr. President, I want to say this, we were with you in 2002. We were with William Ruto and Musalia Mudavadi. We tried all ways but it could not work.
“How do you intend to force Raila on the people of Kenya. If it could not work 20 years ago, just how do you intend to go about it?
“I don’t understand,” Gachagua observed.
The vocal legislator added that the region was eagerly waiting for Uhuru’s visit because they need the Head of State to clarify some issues.
He noted that the president had been away from the region for a long time and that when he finally visits, he should explain to the region why he fell out with Deputy President William Ruto.
His sentiments were echoed by Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro, who observed that the president should also explain how Mt Kenya people wronged him that he decided to neglect them after being elected.
