Kenya will have a new deputy president who will be taking from his predecessor and President-elect William Ruto. The former Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua has proved many wrong after his campaigns in the Mount Kenya region proved fruitful.
According to political analyst Ben Kinuthia, Gachagua will try to emulate his boss President-elect William Ruto as he plans to run for Presidency in either 2027 or 2032.
He further alleged that he will be the best deputy Kenya has ever had in the new constitution. He noted that he will try to prove the opposition wrong after allegations of corruption sprung up during the campaign season.
"Rigathi Gachagua will be the best deputy to William Ruto because he shall be exactly what Ruto was to Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta,” Kinuthia said in an interview with TV47 News on Wednesday, August 17.
The two are yet to be sworn in pending a petition that former Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition party presidential candidate Raila Odinga is likely to make at the Supreme Court of Kenya.
