Sakaja Notices What Luhya Politicians Are Trying to do While Pretending to Defend Him From Gachagua

Nairobi governor Johnson Sakaja has now dismissed his allies from the Western Kenya region who have been attacking Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua.

The politicians, mostly Members of Parliament from Western, have been bashing Gachagua over his recent attack on the first term county chief.

One of them, Bumula lawmaker Jack Wamboka, has even threatened to bring an impeachment motion of Gachagua before the parliament.

But Sakaja has dismissed them as people trying to divide the country down tribal lines, also dismissing those attacking from Gachagua's Mt Kenya region.

He has said that there is no issue between him and the country's Second in Command, announcing that the two of them will continue working together.

“I respect the Deputy President and I would like to remind those speaking from different regions of Kenya trying to cause a rift between the county and national government and Nairobians on tribal lines that they will not succeed," he said in Nairobi on Sunday, as is reported by The Standard.

"There are duties for the county and national government and we will work together,” Sakaja, who has also been threatened with impeachment, is further quoted as saying after attending a church service as PEFA in South B.

Their perceived fight has followed Gachagua's remarks that Sakaja is being hasty in some of his decisions, like the plan to kick out a section of long distance matatus from the Nairobi CBD.

Following up on the matter, Mt Kenya leaders from Nyeri, led by governor Mutahi Kahiga, accused the county chief of disrespecting the DP.

Area senator Wahome Wamatinga warned that they have what it takes to send the governor home through an impeachment, while dismissing Wamboka's threat as something undoable.
