The people of Kenya have every reason to fear being the president of Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua, said ODM leader Raila Odinga's spokesman Dennis Onyango.
Gachagua is set to become the next Deputy President, following the appointment of DP William Ruto, a leading freshman.
Onyango says Gachagua's job as a manager is daunting, especially in a country where such people seem to be creating chaos.
He points out that former Minister Nicholas Biwott was also a district official like Gachagua and what happened under his rule was wrong.
For Onyango, it is possible that what was seen during Biwott's time, which included arrests and executions, may return to Gachagua, and Kenyans need to fear him more.
"The people of Kenya were very happy when arap Moi took over from Kenyatta. Everything went well until a former DO named Biwott appeared and took over. Arrest. Murder. Disappearance. It started to happen as Moi handed over his Bible to church every Sunday. there. DOs, "he said in a tweet.
His concern comes at a time when some leaders, including Ruto's supporters, have already opposed Gachagua, calling him a dictator.
However, he denied that, saying that he would not make Ruto successful if they won, which is one of the things his critics are promoting.
Biwott, prior to joining politics, worked as a South African official and Tharaka Dictict Officer.
Onyango's boss, Raila, is also in contention for the reins of President Uhuru Kenyatta, and is considered one of the main contenders in the race apart from Ruto.
