"Be Bold & Tell Ruto NO on His Face" Manyora Tells Gachagua Over The President's Latest Decision

Political Analyst Herman Manyora has urged the Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua to face of his boss President William Ruto and express his concerns over the Executive Order No.1 of 2023.

The president in the Executive order tasked the deputy with overseeing the working relationship between the national government and the county government, while the Prime cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi was tasked with overseeing the working relationship between the Executive and the Legislature.

According to Manyora, Musalia's position is unconstitutional, and so Gachagua should be adamant in being included in such 'an awkward situation.'

"I would like to tell my friend Riggy-G to sit with the president and sort this thing out. Let the president get annoyed if he wants, but tell him that I am not going to be part of such an arrangement, it is not good for the country, we are setting a bad precedence to the country, something that was started by Uhuru Kenyatta," said Manyora.

He added, "Ruto should have chosen Musalia as a cabinet secretary, and then move to parliament and assign him extra responsibilities just a simple, smooth and constitutional process like it was for Fred Matiang'i. Let Gachagua tell the president that he is not going to be put in a competition with someone who is not guarded by the constitution."

The University of Nairobi lecturer further urged Gachagua to stop 'over-praising' the president saying that as the DP, he has powers to himself, further adding that the DP is the president's principal secretary and not the Prime CS, and thus Ruto should not have split responsibilities between Gachagua and Musalia.
