Several political figures from the Mt. Kenya region, which overwhelmingly supported the Kenya Kwanza alliance, have spoken out in response to rumors that deputy president Rigathi Gachagua is the new political powerhouse in the area.
When asked if Gachagua is currently in charge of the Mt. Kenya region, the former governor of Nakuru County, Lee Kinyanjui, responded, "We'll have to wait and see." He suggested that if the DP stands up for the region's interests, he will be given the mantle. Gachagua will become the cartel's kingpin through trust, he claimed, adding that he has not been present at any meeting where that decision was made.
Amos Kimunya, a former majority leader, thinks Gachagua has some sway because he is the most senior leader in the Mount Kenya region.
Irungu Kang'ata, the governor of Murang'a county, stated that he prefers to concentrate on development-related issues and did not appreciate the discussion about Gachagua becoming the new ruler of the Mt. Kenya region.
