Ruto's running mate, Rigathi Gachagua, has made another contentious statement that could cost him votes in the Mt Kenya and Ukambani areas. According to the Taifa Leo Newspaper, the Mathira MP stated that people from Ukambani had fewer votes than those from other regions of Kenya, and that people from Mt Kenya should listen to him since he is the only one who can bring government resources to the region
People from Ukambani should join together and support the United Democratic Alliance, rather than following Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka, according to Rigathi Gachagua. On the other side, he came to the conclusion that Mt Kenya should vote for the United Democratic Alliance (UDA).
This comes after Gachagua made another divisive declaration about how the government would use public funds. According to him, taxpayer money would be invested in small and medium businesses under a 'bottom up strategy.' Deputy President Gachagua, on the other hand, backed Gachagua's words, claiming that corporations must return profits in order to create more jobs for Kenyan youths.
