Gachagua tasks Gov Waiguru with the responsibility to poach Martha Karua from Azimio to Kenya Kwanza.
While addressing mourners in Kiambu on Monday, January 23, Gachagua directed Waiguru to make sure that Karua joined the Kenya Kwanza administration, where she belonged.
He felt she was the puzzle’s missing piece, but Azimio party leader, Raila Odinga was holding her political hostage.
The DP voiced concern that the NARC-Kenya Party Leader would share Uhuru Kenyatta’s fate as a result of her allegiance to Odinga.
“Waiguru, I do not know what you can do to help because there is something a miss; she has been brainwashed. The same thing that happened to Uhuru is repeating itself with her,” he stated.
In addition, Gachagua laughed off claims by Odinga that he floored President William Ruto in the Central region during the 2022 August General Elections terming it a fallacy.
“Raila now claims that he won the election in Mount Kenya. I listened to him and I think he may need some help,” he chided.
He maintained that the Azimio party leader listened to misguided counsel on where the people of the Mountain stood, and particularly lashed out at some of the musicians from the region.
“It was you, Ben Githae, who lied to him that he could climb the mountain yet you know the real situation on the ground. You need to apologize for that,” the DP stated.
Meanwhile, the task could prove to be difficult for Waiguru as she and Karua have never spoken from the same side of the microphone politically.
In 2017, the two faced each other in the Kirinyaga gubernatorial election which the incumbent won. Karua unsuccessfully challenged the victory to the Supreme Court.
While the Narc-Kenya party leader opted not to challenge Waiguru in her re-election, a second showdown would have occurred if the county boss was selected to be Ruto’s running mate.
