What The Governor Gachagua Recently Attacked Has Allegedly Began Doing

A section of Nairobi MCAs are now accusing their governor Johnson Sakaja of beginning to show signs of being partisan and leaning towards one side.

Sakaja hails from the minority Kenya Kwanza side, and was elected through the President William Ruto-led United Democratic Alliance (UDA).

But UDA ward representatives now claim that he has began favouring the majority Azimio side, and is sending most county appointments that way.

Minority Whip Mark Mugambi claims that the first term county chief is now more friendly to the rival side than he is to the side that made him governor.

“ We don't have a problem with him working with Azimio but It will be unfair for the assembly to pass the chief officer where some of them have integrity issues,” he is quoted by The Star.

This comes only days after Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua attacked the governor, accusing him of going against the people who elected him.

He took issue with Sakaja's plans to push matatus out of the city center, terming this a plan to victimise members of the Kikuyu community.

Gachagua suggested that Kikuyus almost singlehandedly made Sakaja governor, landing him in trouble for showing tribalism tendencies.
