"Take it From Here in The Slopes of Mt Kenya," Gachagua Warns Ruto on Doing a Handshake With Raila

Rigathi Gachagua, DP Rigathi

On the Sunday after Gratitude, on December 4th, a number of influential people went with President William Ruto to Embu university for an interdenominational prayer and thanksgiving ceremony. The Deputy Prime Minister Rigathi Gachagua, the Attorney General Justin Muturi, Governor Cecily Mbarire, Governor Kawira Mwangaza, Governor Muthomi Njuki, and Governor Kimani Ichung'wa were among those who were present. Other attendees included Governor Muthomi Njuki.

The leaders expressed their gratitude to the people of Embu for their massive turnout at the election to support the Kenya Kwanza government. The leaders of Kenya have given their word that they will work for the people of Kenya.

During the course of his speech, the Deputy President cautioned the President not to shake hands with Raila Odinga, who had previously served in the position of Prime Minister. According to Gachagua, the handshake is the single worst event that has ever taken place in the annals of Kenyan history.

The second in command made a veiled reference to the fact that Raila Odinga is encouraging people to demonstrate in the hopes that a handshake would take place once more, as it did during the administration of the previous president, Uhuru Kenyatta.

"We in the Mount Kenya region gave you an overwhelming majority of the vote, Mr. President. We are an integral part of your governing structure. We are pleading with you not to give in to the pressure of the handshake. Avoid going in that direction. The handshake is the single most disastrous cultural development that has ever taken place in this country. Please bring it down from the summit of the mountain to where I am "alluded Gachagua. (The video starts at the 2 minute mark.)

Raila Odinga, the DP said, "I want to inform you that you can demonstrate in the morning, demonstrate at lunch time, and demonstrate in the evening but you should know that there will be no handshake this time around."

Gachagua extended his gratitude to the president for bestowing a number of appointments upon the Mt. Kenya region. He went on to say that the people of the region will continue to have faith in the government of Kenya Kwanza.
