Raila meets Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua on Friday morning at Moi Airport VIP Lounge in Mombasa.
Azimio leader Raila Odinga has met Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua in Mombasa County, the first time the duo met since the August elections.
Gachagua confirmed the meeting in a Facebook post after posting photos of them together.
However, he declined to reveal details of their meeting.
“We have tremendous respect for our senior citizens. I was delighted this morning to have a tete-a-tete with our senior citizen, former Prime Minister Rt Hon Raila Amolo Odinga in Mombasa,” Gachagua stated.
An insider privy to the meeting further revealed that the two did not share the minutes of their meeting.
“I can confirm that the two leaders met in Mombasa where DP Gachagua addressed the governor’s induction while Raila celebrated Governor Abdulswamad Nassir’s swearing-in ceremony.
“However, we are not aware of what we discussed,” the source close to Raila stated.
Raila was said to be heading to Machakos for the Azimio Parliamentary Group and Gachagua was heading back to Nairobi after officially opening the Governors’ induction workshop.
Raila-Gachagua meeting comes after the Azimio leader arrived in the country from Zanzibar where he went for a holiday to recuperate after the ruling by the Supreme Court which upheld President William Ruto’s victory.
“I have been out of the country; I went to recuperate in the spice Island of Zanzibar. I took my wife, children and grandchildren also to go heal after the shock they got as a family,” he said.
