Gachagua Reveals He Constantly Has Meetings with Leaders At Night, Vows He'll Continue Doing So

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua was on Sunday, March 12 interviewed by journalists from the leading media houses at his private residence in Karen, Nairobi.

Gachagua talked about his hard stance of not letting the opposition anywhere near the government. He defended his sentiments saying that courting Azimio leaders will be setting the government up for failure as was the case with former President Uhuru Kenyatta in his second term.

Gachagua however revealed that he and President William Ruto have constantly had late-night meetings with leaders from the opposing factions. He says he shall continue conducting the meetings because he is not bitter with anyone and would talk to anyone willing to work with the government.

"I have no bitterness with anybody. Kanini Kega used all sorts of insults against me. He was instrumental in my problems. He was the one who worked with former President Uhuru Kenyatta to persecute me. But when he reached out, I am a leader and the elections are over. I told Kanini Kega to come so we work together.

I am willing to talk to anybody who wants to talk to us. We are talking to many people, some come during the day, and others come at night depending on how they look at things. I will continue talking to leaders at night. Those who are willing to talk to us, we are ready just come. President William Ruto and I are Christians we have no bitterness with anybody," he said during the heated interview. Source: NTV Twitter.

Gachagua also called out Azimio La Umoja One Kenya coalition leader Raila Odinga saying that he is hypocritical owing to the fact that he did not stage demonstrations when the price of maize flour was 230 but now wants to protest when it is 178.
