The party warned the two top leaders to keep off the feud between the lawmakers and the embattled governor arguing that the MCAs must be allowed to exercise their rights.
Speaking to a local daily through a phone call, Devolution Empowerment Party secretary-general Alhaji Mwendia stated that it was wrong for the two to get involved in the row pitting the governor against the lawmakers who have vowed to impeach him.
She was reacting to Gachagua's earlier promise that President Ruto would soon convened a meeting to reconcile the embattled governor and the lawmakers. This was after Governor Mwangaza urged the president to intervene.
Gachagua had noted that Meru is an important county that can't be left to undergo underdevelopment due to political fights.
The DEP Secretary-General maintained that the MCAs must be allowed to fully exercise their rights without any interference.
The MCAs have already renewed bid to oust the governor whom they accuse of nepotism and arrogance among other issues.
