‘Ata mkisema hamtutambui, sisi ndio tuko!’ DP Gachagua fires back at Raila
Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has come out guns blazing to hit out at the opposition over remarks that they do not recognize the current government.
The DP, in a defiant tone, told off critics in the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition party camp emphasizing that the Kenya Kwanza government led by President William Ruto will continue to govern the country unapologetically.
Gachagua, who spoke at the home of the late former Education Cabinet Secretary Prof. George Magoha’s home in Nairobi on Saturday, insisted that he and his boss are duly elected leaders and will not be cowed as they traverse the country to work for all citizens across the political divide.
The DP further urged their political opponents to accept the outcome of the August 2022 general elections and accord the reigning government time to deliver for Kenyans.
“Ata mkisema hamtutambui, sisi tutakuja tu. Ni lazima tutakuja kwa sababu kazi lazima iendelee. If you say you don’t recognize us, how will you ask for help from the government…some of these things don’t make sense,” Gachagua said.
“Elections are over, this is time to work…and the President and I do not care where you voted, nobody should be left behind. We will develop this country for everybody. That is why we spent three days in Homa Bay, Siaya and Kisumu and we are planning to come to Migori.”
DP Gachagua also urged the Mr. Odinga-led opposition camp to focus on realigning themselves for the next polls in 2027.
“We are the government for now, let us work. Let everybody accept and move on. That is how life is. Tutapata nafasi hapo mbele 2027, we go back to the field to contest, but for now, President Ruto is the one responsible for the government that takes care of every Kenyan,” he stated.
The sentiments by the DP targeted Azimio chief Mr. Odinga and his camp who have been reiterating they do notrecognize President Ruto’s government.
“We do not, and will not recognise the Kenya Kwanza regime and we consider the Kenya Kwanza government illegitimate,” he said on Monday during a rally at the Kamukunji Grounds in Nairobi.
