Kakamega deputy governor Ayub Savula says Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua is to blame for the problems the country is currently facing.
Speaking in his office Wednesday, Savula faulted Gachagua for abusing Opposton leader Raila Odinga and former President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“The problem in this country emanates from the DP who is busy abusing Azimio leader Raila Odinga and retired president Uhuru Kenyatta. The two leaders have their supporters whom he is annoying by abusing their leaders. After an election you unite the country,” Savula said.
According to Savula, DP Gachagua should stop chest-thumping and behaving like a bandit and instead focus on uniting the country.
“If you can’t tone down simply shut up. Your continued reckless utterances will burn the country and if the country burns we burn together. I’m happy that president William Ruto has tonned down his talk because he understands the unity of the country is paramount,” he said.
Savula further called for a national conversation on the rising cost of living, saying this can only be done without threats and intimidation from both sides of the political divide.
“We need as leaders to work around the clock to have a national conversation of how to lower the cost of living,” he said.
