Gachagua Alleges One of The First Things That Would've Happened if Raila Won in August

A President William Ruto defeat to Azimio La Umoja leader Raila Odinga in the August general election would have brought undesired outcomes, Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has claimed.

Gachagua alleges that among the first things that would have happened would be the loss of the contested prime land owned by Kenyatta University.

He claims that a plan was in the making to hive off the land had Raila won, and the fact that it is Ruto that won should come as good news for the institution and it's students.

The DP has alleged that the land would be lost to grabbers, after the previous regime tried to have the institution surrender a section of its land to the state for the purposes of setting up a logistics hub.

"Had thing's gone wrong, and William Ruto was not elected as president, your land had already been grabbed. We have hence instructed the Ministry of Lands to cancel those allocations and reinstate the land to Kenyatta University," he said at KU on Friday.

He added that with Ruto in power, the land that was to be used to put up the logistics hub and a Regional Centre for Disease Control and Prevention will be returned to the university.

Gachagua stated that only a small portion will be taken away and used to settle the Kamae squatters who have been claiming ownership of part of the land.
