Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua and Nairobi County Governor Johnson Sakaja got into a fight, according to Githunguri constituency member of parliament Gathoni Wamuchomba.
Wamuchomba claimed in an interview with Inooro TV that she reported Sakaja to the DP after he refused to pay attention to her.
The senator argued against Sakaja's order to bar matatus from the CBD and described how she was compelled to speak to the Nairobi county executive on behalf of her constituents.
"I paid Sakaja a visit in his office, and we had tea together. I let him know that I objected to him keeping our matatus away from CBD.
He needs to quit lying. He advised me to allow him two weeks, and he even told those in charge of the matatu stages that I had a court order for the return of the matatus, she said.
The MP said how she was forced to inform Gachagua of the situation since she had no other option.
Even the few matatus who were still on stage were told to leave when I left the office.
I went to DP Gachagua at that point after realizing Sakaja was not listening to me. You've seen how they've been fighting among themselves," she said.
Wamuchomba stated that she would no longer agree with Sakaja because of the way he made decisions without considering how they would affect the people.
She said that because Nairobi is a city where every Kenyan can conduct business, she was prepared to fight for her people in every way.
"We'll battle. He shouldn't substitute other matatus if he has chosen to remove Githunguri matatus from CBD. Are we really this nave? He does not own Nairobi; it is a capital city for everyone, she said.
Gachagua made it obvious that he could not permit him to carry out his plan in accordance with Sakaja's request.
The William Ruto and Rigathi Gachagua government won't permit anyone to damage any enterprises, he said, therefore we must respect all firms. He urged all businesspeople to keep working.
