Rigathi Gachagua Asks William Ruto To Give Him 50% Share Of His Government

Kenya Kwanza presidential candidate Rigathi Gachagua challenged Deputy President William Ruto late Friday to give 50% of his administration to the Mount Kenya area if he gets the presidency.

Speaking at the county economic forum in Embu late Friday, Gachagua asked Mount Kenya residents to support Ruto to maintain a competitive advantage with such a large portion of the administration.

"I am applying for a 50% stake in Ruto's administration," Gachagua remarked.

However, asking for government stock is one matter, and receiving the stock is quite another. We must vote in vast numbers if we are to receive a significant share. "

A Mathira MP stated that because ANC Party head Musalia Mudavadi and his Ford Kenya colleague Moses Wetangula registered for and strived for just a 30% portion, the Mount Kenya territory should give more votes to increase their share.

"The percentage of votes we put in support of Ruto shall define our control of the next administration." As a result, we must ensure that many people vote for Ruto, "Gachagua elaborated.

Mudavadi and Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang'ula agreed to give 70% of Western votes in exchange for a 30% share in the administration.

Mudavadi will also be named a chief cabinet member, whereas Wetangula will be elected speaker of the National Assembly.

Gachagua also took advantage of the occasion to advocate for the concerns of the region's police personnel.

He asked Ruto to construct institutions to meet the demands of the region's police officers.

He said that the force's frequent deployments hamper the kids' schooling.

"They demanded this in the spirit of bottoms up because the only current boarding schools are for the kids of top commanders," he noted.
