Kenyans were told by Vice President Rigathi Gachagua that he and former President Uhuru Kenyatta do not have bad feelings toward each other, which is what many people think. Gachagua worked as Uhuru's personal assistant from 2001 to 2006. He says that even though they have some political differences, they are still friends and nothing can change that. Even though many Kenyans think that Mr. Kenyatta and Uhuru don't get along, Rigathi says that he still thinks Uhuru is his friend and that he and Mr. Kenyatta will meet to put their differences behind them.
Before the 2017 elections, Uhuru and Rigathi were good friends. However, it seems that their different goals made it hard for them to work together. Rigathi says that if there is a problem, he wants to make up with the president because he thinks of him as a statesman who has worked hard for the country.
This goes against what Rigathi said when he took his oath of office, when he dragged the President's name through the mud. Rigathi said that Mr. Kenyatta had ruined the country during his time in office and left a broken economy behind.
"There is no bad blood between me and Uhuru Kenyatta, who was the president before me. I want to see him and get back in touch with him. When I go to see him, I'll give him a sheep while we drink, eat, and talk about politics to figure out how to get along. He was a good friend, so I can't say anything bad about him. Rigathi has said, "I will take most of his secrets to my grave with me."
