Uhuru, Gachagua Expected to Share Podium in Muranga; Gachagua Reacts to Karua, Kioni Limuru Event & Crisis at KRA Over Jobs Freeze

Good morning,

On Monday, Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua apologized to former First Lady Mama Ngina Kenyatta raising speculation of a possible truce between him and retired President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Gachagua, while speaking in a roundtable interview with journalists from the Mt Kenya region, said that the political activities that swept the entire country ahead of the 2022 elections, led some of the politicians to lose respect for the former First Lady.

The DP Gachagua also stated that he is open to a potential meeting with Uhuru to end the political animosity that saw the two fall out in the buildup to the 2022 presidential election.

Gachagua revealed that he and the former Head of State had been friends for seventeen years but fell out for two years before the 2022 election when he started supporting President Ruto.

The Deputy President urged the Mount Kenya Region to embrace unity amidst disunity talks within the region.

Do you think Uhuru and Gachagua are likely to bury their hatchet ahead of the 2027 elections?
