Legislators from ODM and the UDA party have vowed to team up and punish Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua whom they say is a neophyte and a greedy bigoted leader.
The Deputy President is accused of being a polarising figure not only in government where he pressed William Ruto to hand over a huge chunk of State appointments to his Mt Kenya friends but also nationally, making public remarks some of which have divided Kenyans even further.
UDA MPs from Mt Kenya counties say the former Mathira MP lacks the wisdom to bring the people of Mt Kenya together and they are not part of his constant wars with the Kenyatta family.
Yesterday in Kiambu, MPs from the county pledged their loyalty to William Ruto, as their leader and not Rigathi Gachgua who insists he is the region’s kingpin.
In Nairobi, ODM MPs and their UDA counterparts have resolved to rally behind Governor Johnson Sakaja in his efforts to decongest the CBD despite open resistance from DP Rigathi Gachagua. Already, Azimio MCAs in the Nairobi County Assembly have forged a good working relationship with the governor.
Speaking to this publication on condition of anonymity, a source from the ruling Kenya Kwanza Coalition says Kenyans should expect a huge shift in national politics in the coming days, something that will see President William Ruto and Raila Odinga troops join hands not only in Parliament but also nationally, on a number of issues of national concern.
