Recently, Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja announced plans to remove all matatu from the city's central business district to ease traffic. Geoffrey Rigathi Gachagua, the vice president, warned Governor Sakaja to slow down because his proposal would disrupt the livelihoods of many people in the city. He was also informed by Vice President Geoffrey Rigathi Gachagua that he had persuaded Kikuyus to support him in his bid to become governor of Nairobi.
DP Gachagua's comments were criticized by many national leaders who labeled them tribal and polarizing. While Governor Sakaja was urged to respect people's affairs, other leaders supported DP Gachagua. At present, DP Gachagua is under fire from Senator Edwin Sifuna of Nairobi, who has urged him not to interfere in Nairobi county affairs. In response to Sifuna, Mathira Congressman Eric Mwangi Wambua said, "Senator Sifuna, in our community men don't fight with uncircumcised boys; they are left to the discipline of their mothers."
Attorney Wahome Thuku posted the following message in response to a message from Mathira MP Eric Mwangi.
