"Stop living in denial" - DP Gachagua accuses Uhuru of financing Raila mass action
- Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua assures Kenyans of their security, asking them to continue with their businesses without fear, saying the government will protect them and their property.
- Gachagua says the government would firmly follow the law to ensure no one breaks it in the guise of protests.
The Government has made sufficient plans to secure Nairobi ahead of the planned demonstrations on March 20, 2023, Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has said.
Gachagua assured Kenyans of their security, asking them to continue with their businesses without fear, saying the government will protect them and their property.
Speaking at Kianyaga Boys High School Alumni Day - where he is an old boy, Gachagua said the government would firmly follow the law to ensure no one breaks it in the guise of protests.
“Adequate arrangements have been made to protect lives and property on Monday and I would like to ask the people to carry on with their business,” he said.
'Uhuru should come out'
He accused the opposition leader Raila Odinga who has called the protests of having colluded with former President Uhuru Kenyatta and his regime in destroying the economy, almost bringing it to its knees, only to turn around with intentions of destroying “the little that there is” to leave the country destitute.
He described the protests that Raila and his people are spearheading as an old script complete with a financier, which will not succeed in the Kenya Kwanza Administration.
“Kenya is stable; and the President is firmly in control,” the deputy president said at the event which brought together political leaders from different parts of the county and attended by Cabinet Secretary for Education Ezekiel Machogu, who is also a former boy of Kianyaga High School among other high-profile alumni.
National Assembly Majority Leader Kimani Ichung’wa, his Senate counterpart Aaron Cheruiyot and Naivasha MP Jayne Kihara accused Uhuru of being behind the protests and challenged him to come out clean.
The Deputy President returned to the school, which he left after his Form 6 in 1983 to give back to the institution, which he credits for his success in life.
He has mobilised the old boys to give the institution a facelift based on the needs assessment carried out during a tour. They will start with removal of asbestos roofs from all buildings. An ultra-modern multi-purpose hall will also be built alongside a Olympic size swimming pool for the school which has been nicknamed ‘Kalahari’ for being as hot as Kalahari Desert.
