Raila dares Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua over the remarks he made on Sunday to “handle” him (Raila).
Speaking at the Kamukunji Grounds on Monday, January 23, shortly after jetting back from his trip to South Africa, the former Prime Minister told an ecstatic crowd that he had heard Deputy President Gachagua’s remarks criticizing him.
Raila expressed his surprise at the way the Deputy President told President William Ruto to let him handle the Azimio leader.
‘I was surprised to hear Gachagua bragging that Ruto should let him handle me. He also keeps telling Kenyans that he is the son of Mau Mau, I have news for him,” Raila remarked amidst cheers from the charged crowd.
DP Gachagua should quit aligning himself with the liberation warriors for political reasons because, according to Raila, he was not alive when Mau Mau was fighting for independence.
“I want to educate Gachagua that it was my father Jaramogi Oginga Odinga who represented Mau Mau freedom fighters and took them out of jail,” Raila responded to Gachagua.
The Azimio Leader further cautioned the Deputy President to exercise caution when making political remarks.
“Gachagua should learn about political history and appreciate where we have come as a nation.
“I have sacrificed a lot for this country even spending years in jail for this country, we are not equal agewise or politically and he should respect me,” the Azimio leader warned.
DP Gachagua on Sunday, January 20, while attending the Interdenominational Thanksgiving Prayer in Kirinyaga County asked President Ruto to let him “handle” Raila.
“One of my duties is to defend the President and as a son of Maumau, let me be allowed to deal with him,” Gachagua pleaded with President William Ruto.
