Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi and Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua seem to be reading from different scripts on who is culpable for the challenges Kenyans are experiencing currently.
According to the former ANC leader, the Kenya Kwanza administration should stop apportioning blame and instead focus on service delivery as he indicated that the electioneering period was over and that Kenyans’ problems needed to be solved quickly.
Mudavadi, in what seemed like a veiled attack on DP Gachagua, argued that if the leaders in power continue with the blame game, they will not be able to help Kenyans who have given them the mandate and power to serve them.
This follows sustained attacks by Gachagua against former President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga, whom he has severally accused of the failed economy and the hunger Kenyans are currently facing.
Gachagua has also severally attributed the failures of Uhuru’s administration to Raila.
Do you think Mudavadi’s remarks over the weekend were targeted at DP Gachagua? Should the DP keep on blaming the opposition for the woes Kenyans are currently facing?
