Gachagua will cost Ruto Presidency as he’s a liability, Nyandarua gubernatorial aspirant, Kirika Mwangi remarks as Kenya Kwanza Wars Escalate.
Kenya kwanza coalition wars continue to escalate as United Democratic Alliance(UDA) affiliate parties accuse Dp Ruto of favouring UDA aspirants.
Aspirants from small parties in the Mt Kenya region now accuse Ruto’s running mate, Rigathi Gachagua of sidelining them during political rallies.
Speaking to the media on Wednesday, May 25, Kirika Mwangi warned Rigathi Gachagua is likely to cost Ruto in the August 9 polls.
Kirika Mwangi who is vying under Mwangi Kiunjuri’s The Service Party (TSP) stated that Gachagua was too overexcited with his nomination adding that his actions were undermining the influence of the DP in the Mt Kenya region.
He accused Gachagua of sidelining affiliate parties by calling on the voters to embrace the six-piece voting pattern.
Gachagua will cost Ruto Presidency
Kirika Mwangi cited an instance where he was almost denied an opportunity to speak at a Ruto function.
He revealed that he was given the microphone after the DP’s intervention.
“When I was invited to speak by the DP during the Nyandarua economic forum, there was a team that was refusing to hand over the microphone. There is a team who was inciting the DP not to give me the microphone.
“It is Gachagua who has been overly excited and that excitement may not assist the Deputy President in his campaigns around the Mt Kenya region,” he stated
Kirika cautioned Gachagua not to put too much faith in the Mt Kenya vote, noting that the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition party would be a tough competitor.
“Let him cool down because he thinks we have already won. It is still a journey as we have close to 70 days to the elections and many voters will cross the bridge before then. Let him assist the DP in looking for votes without discrimination. We need all the votes,” he stated.
