The wrangles within the Kenya Kwanza camp have been the subject of discussion recently after Chama Cha Kazi’s leader Moses Kuria and his Tujibebe counterpart William Kabogo complained that DP William Ruto’s running mate, Rigathi Gachagua was a ‘dictator’.
According to the two Kiambu gubernatorial candidates, Gachagua has been discriminating against other parties within the coalition, specifically from the Mt Kenya region, and blatantly refused to recognize aspirants who are not UDA’s.
However, DP Ruto has now come out strongly to defend his deputy from such attacks as he defended Gachagua over criticism of being unsuitable for the office of the Deputy President.
In the scathing attack on Gachagua’s critics, the DP stated that the perception of his running mate being unqualified was propagated by some jealous Kenya Kwanza politicians who were eyeing the running mate position.
He further praised Gachagua for his toughness as he sent the strongest signals that he was not willing to negotiate with other coalition partners over his stance on UDA’s strength within the Mt Kenya region.
Do you think these remarks by DP Ruto will eventually quell animosity within the Kenya Kwanza coalition in the Mt Kenya region?
