Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua and National Assembly Majority Leader Kimani Ichung’wah are now claiming that former President Uhuru Kenyatta is behind Monday's planned demonstrations by Azimio la Umoja One Kenya leader Raila Odinga.

The Kenya Kwanza Alliance leaders spoke on Saturday in Kirinyaga County where a section of Members of Parliament from Mount Kenya recognized DP Gachagua as the top-ranked leader in the region.

These people who are sponsoring this mzee should stop living in denial...this mzee lost...there is nothing they can do,” said the DP.

Ichung’wa stated: “Uhuru Kenyatta because you are the principal sponsor of the demonstrations...Raila Odinga is a mercinary sponsored by Uhuru Kenyatta.”

DP Gachagua, while calling security agencies to protect property of civilians before, during and after the demonstrations, stated that President William Ruto will not be cowed by the planned mass action.

“I want to assure the people of Kenya that adequate plans have been made to protect the lives and property of Kenyans. We want Kenyans to go about their businesses. Ruto hapana mtoto wa cerelac, ni chuma wa zamani...huyo si mtu wa kuuziwa uwoga...uwoga uliuzia yule mtu wa cerelac,” said the DP.

Senate Majority Leader Aaron Cheruiyot said: “On Monday, the Kenyans that want to go about their business wapatiwe nafasi yao waendelee na kazi yao bila kusumbuliwa na mtu yeyote...because there should be a time when we say enough is enough.”

In Bungoma County, Governor Kenneth Lusaka and Senator David Wakoli Wafula led the Kenya Kwanza alliance onslaught against Odinga, stating that the government will not allow loss of life and property come Monday.

“A government that has been legitimately sworn in is not something to joke with...na hakuma mtu atakubalia kwenda hiyo State House,” said Governor Lusaka.

The leaders spoke at the funeral ceremony of the late former Director General of the Communications Authority (CA) Eng. Francis Wangusi.
