Gachagua’s Stance in Politics to Top Agenda in Ruto’s Meeting

Kenya Kwanza Coalition’s members of Parliament vowed to castigate Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua in a meeting that is scheduled to be held on Tuesday morning, Majority Chief Whip Sylvanus Osoro revealed.

The meeting is expected to take place at State House and will involve the Head of State and all Kenya Kwanza legislators on Tuesday morning, ahead of a parliamentary session.

On Monday, Osoro disclosed that part of the agenda for tomorrow’s meeting between Ruto and the UDA MPs will be to reprimand Gachagua.

Speaking to journalists, Osoro stated that Gachagua had been tribal in his politics particularly demonstrated through his stance on the “Mountain’s Politics”.

“We also expect him to tell his deputy to stop being tribal and focus on his national agenda. If the President doesn’t, then the members will tell the DP that he is a bit too tribal in his politics,” stated Osoro

Additionally, Osoro stated that Gachagua’s stance on the One Man One Shilling One Vote debate had been divisive arguing that it aimed at marginalising certain communities.

Speculations are also rife that the Deputy President has absconded duty on several occasions where the President is involved.

Media reports detailed that the DP failed to pick up the President at the airport upon his return from Switzerland on Monday.

However, despite the growing tensions within the UDA Camp, there have been speculations that the President convened the meeting to garner support for the 2024 Finance Bill.

Media reports on Monday evening revealed that UDA MPs had been invited to the meeting alongside their counterparts referred to as Azimio rebels, and independent MPs who have been working with the Ruto administration and supporting the Kenya Kwanza agenda.

This meeting falls on the backdrop of the tabling of a report from the Finance Committee to the Parliament on Tuesday following the conclusion of public participation exercises on the Finance Bill.

The Committee is expected to present the bill despite the growing opposition from Kenyans across the country.
