Jubilee Party Secretary General Jeremiah Kioni chides DP Gachagua over his plan to hold peace talks with former President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Speaking in an interview, Kioni said the plan by the Deputy President is disrespectful to the former president.
“I’ve heard Gachagua express his desire to engage in dialogue with Uhuru, but Uhuru doesn’t require such discussions. He has already led Kenya, completed his term, and stepped down. If you’ve obtained your position, lead in your own unique way,” Kioni stated.
He added “You have insulted people since 2017, planting the seed of hatred. You stole sheep at Northlands. Now you want Uhuru for dialogue?”
Remarks by Jubilee Party Secretary General come after Gachagua in an interview said he would reach out to Uhuru to bury the hatchet for the sake of Mt Kenya unity.
The deputy president also disclosed that he directed leaders from the Mt Kenya region to respect Uhuru and his family.
“Kenyatta was fronting Raila Odinga for the presidency and he lost. We have now decided to embrace him as our respectable son and statesman despite everything. As Mt Kenya leaders, we have agreed not to be fighting him and I’m planning to hold talks with him. I have ordered everyone to respect him and he is also doing good to keep his peace,” Gachagua stated.
