William Ruto dismisses Gachagua ‘government shareholding’ remarks assuring there are no opposition people in Kenya.
President William Ruto has differed from his deputy Rigathi Gachagua over the shareholding remarks the latter has been making in public.
While speaking in his development tour of Nyanza region, that every Kenyan has a right to the government despite their divergent political preferences.
Ruto said there are no opposition citizens in the country adding that everyone is a Kenyan.
“For a long time, because of politics, there has been a suggestion that the people of Nyanza belong to the Opposition, I want to make it clear that there are no opposition people in Kenya, everyone is a Kenyan,” said President Ruto.
In a remark seemed to target DP Gachagua over his remarks that government is a shareholding company, President Ruto said everyone is entittled to development and government service.
“No one should tell you that you are out of government; this is your government, you all pay taxes, and you are Kenyans, and this your government. We will make sure no part of the country will be discriminated against on matters of development because of political differences. We want to ensure Kenya is one that Kenya is united so that we make progress. It is primitive and backward for anyone to imagine that any region of Kenya cannot get development on account of how they voted. That is not right, that is not correct, and I want to assure Kenyans that we will move together as one nation,” he said in Urenga, Siaya county.
The Head of State vowed to make sure the Nyanza residents receive the same treatment as other Kenyans from other regions.
“People of Nyanza, I want you to know that just like other Kenyans, you will be taken care of by the Kenyan government. No part of Kenya will be discriminated against based on party politics or politics in general. Kenya is one, and we will work for all Kenyans without discrimination,” Ruto stated.
Rigathi caused ripples with his shareholding remarks regarding those with the right to claim government.
He is on record insisting that the Kenya Kwanza regime will give priority to those who voted for its leaders.
