How Ruto Shielded Gachagua From Attacks from kk Mps



President William Ruto reportedly shot down attempts by a section of Kenya Kwanza MPs to discuss the conduct of his deputy, Mr Rigathi Gachagua, during the ruling alliance’s parliamentary group meeting at State House yesterday.

“I want to advise our leaders with tremendous respect, please our leaders, all politics is local, listen to your people, listen to the ground. Align your thinking and your utterances with the people, that is what I do all the time. I listen to the ground,” said the DP.

Last weekend, he also accused Dr Ruto’s close associates of trying to “order him around”.

“There are some people who are friends with the President who want to be my boss. Just because you are the President’s friend you want to become my boss. PAs [personal assistants] want to order me on how to work. Is that possible? Even [President Ruto’s] bloggers want to tell me what to do ,” the DP lamented.

At the PG, Dr Ruto reportedly told the MPs not to engage in the politics of ethnicity.

“The President downplayed the talks about the DP. He told people not to be distracted and wait for the right time to politic.”

At the press briefing after the meeting yesterday, only Mr Kimani and Mr Ichung’wah addressed journalists while flanked by Dr Ruto, Mr Gachagua, Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi and other leaders.

President Ruto and Mr Mudavadi took time chatting with the MPs before the briefing even as the DP, whose allies have been opposed to the Finance Bill 2024, maintained a studious silence.
