Two weeks ago on June 12th Deputy President William Ruto’s residence witnessed high profile squabble between Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua and Kiambu gubernatorial aspirant Moses Kuria, forcing police officers manning the Karen residence to intervene.
According to corridors of power, Kuria, also the Chama Cha Kazi leader had borrowed 3 million shillings from DP Ruto only for his running mate Rigathi Gachagua to request he delivers the cash to the Gatundu South MP.
Gachagua, the corridors of power disclosed had hoped he would use the opportunity to convince Moses Kuria out of the Kiambu gubernatorial race in favor of the UDA candidate Kimani Wamatangi – a request Kuria not only rejected but the MP also demanded 100 million shillings and a CS position post-August. Leading to a bitter exchange between the two leaders.
”Kuria was particularly angry the DP had dispensed the funds but Gachagua did not deliver to him and instead tried to convince him to drop his bid in favor of Wamatangi who is a close business associate to Gachagua,” reads the brief in part.
Earlier on in the week, Moses Kuria and William Kabogo had rebuked Gachgaua for what they described as his ‘dictatorial tendencies’ in Kenya Kwanza that may cost William Ruto votes in Mt Kenya.
