Popular Alliance (AP) party leader Dan Ojowa has waded into the ongoing spat between Nairobi governor Johnson Sakaja and Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua.

The conflict between the two senior UDA leaders started after the DP faulted Sakaja over the move to relocate long-distance Matatus from CBD to Greenpatk terminus.

Gachagua argued the move would hurt businesspersons particularly from his Mt Kenya backyard who have invested heavily in the thriving transport sector.

The DP claimed he is the one who led Kikuyus into voting for Sakaja as the county boss saying he must protect the interests of the community in the capital city.

"I shall sit down with Sakaja because we are the ones who elected him. We must first discuss anything which can disrupt business in Nairobi. We do not need a lot of speed, go slow," Gachagua said.

Ojowa, a politician from Nyanza who has already declared his presidential bid, accused Gachagua of engaging in tribal politics saying instead of fighting Sakaja he and his boss President William Ruto should focus on fulfilling Kenya Kwanza manifesto.

"To Rigathi Gachagua, let Johnson Sakaja do his job. Stop the tribal mentality and deal with the fake promises you and Ruto made to Kenyans," he tweeted on wednesday morning.

Similar sentiments were echoed by Busia Woman Representative Catherine Omanyo who hit out at the DP for neglecting his duties assigned by Ruto and instead becoming a tribal leader.

"Why is Gachagua only talking and defending his Kikuyu tribe? He should be reminded that he's not a Kikuyu Deputy President," Omanyo stated
