    ‘He Is An Embarrassment To The Presidency!’ Raila Tears Into DP Gachagua


    Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition party leader Raila Odinga has launched a bare-knuckled attack against Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua over his often controversial public remarks.

    Mr. Odinga spoke on Wednesday night in reference to DP Gachagua’s August remarks that the ongoing bipartisan talks that have brought together leaders from both the opposition Azimio as well as the ruling Kenya Kwanza political outfits are nothing but as a waste of time.

    He also called out the country’s second-in-command over his February sentiments in which he likened the government to a company with shareholders, intimating that the administration would reward those who voted for it and give least consideration to opposition supporters.

    The former premier went ahead to state that such remarks are not presidential, further expressing his displeasure at the fact that they came from a political leader of the stature of a deputy president.

    Mr. Odinga termed Gachagua as “an embarrassment” to the nation owing to the office he holds, adding that he does not possess the moral acumen to sit in the office of a country’s deputy president.

    He also censured the DP for allegedly discriminating against other parts of the country and only working for the region from which he comes; something the opposition boss opined could lead to serious conflicts.

    “Huyo bwana Gachagua nimesema ni mtu ambaye hastahili awe naibu wa rais wa taifa, maanake mdomo yake ni chafu; anatoa maneno ambayo inaweza kuleta mapigano katika taifa. Yeye inasemekana ni naibu wa rais wa taifa la Kenya, lakini anajifanya kama yeye ni naibu wa rais wa mlima Kenya, upande zingine za Kenya ni kigeni kwake,” the Azimio chief said in an interview on KTN News.

    “Akiongea anasema wao na sisi…na tena anasema Kenya ni kampuni ambayo ina hisa; kuna wengine wana hisa zaidi, wengine wana hisa chache, wengine hawana chochote. Hiyo inaweza kugawanya nchi.”

    He added: “Serikali inatakikana itoe huduma kwa watu wote na usawa, maanake pesa ya serikali inatoka kwa ushuru ya wananchi, na hakuna eneo ambayo inasemekana ni eneo ya wafuasi wa serikali, na ingine ni eneo ya maadui wa serikali; Wakenya wote wanatoa ushuru sawa. Sasa yeye akisema ‘wao na sisi,’ hiyo ni nchi gani? Kwa hivyo bwana Gachagua anatakikana asiwe naibu wa rais wa taifa ya Kenya, ni aibu kubwa sana kuwa mtu kama huyo anaweza kuwa naibu wa rais wa taifa chochote, sio Kenya pekee yake.
