DP Gachagua asks Maa community to abandon Raila Odinga

May 3, 2023


Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has asked the Maasai Community to withdraw their support to Azimio leader Raila Odinga because he is anti-development.

Speaking in Narok West, Narok County, when he distributed over 6,000 title deeds to residents of Naikarra Ward, the Deputy President said Mr Odinga likes anarchy and violence, which cannot allow for development.

“During the August 2022 General Election, you gave us half of your votes. Some of you voted for him(Mr Odinga);  he is now leading violence. I urge you to abandon him;  he is destructive,” Mr Gachagua said.

Mr Gachagua said the opposition, which has resumed violent protests despite President William  Ruto inviting them for talks under the bi-partisan approach, is pursuing selfish interest disguised in the public agenda.

“When you elected us, we promised to deliver. Seven months into office, we have delivered 6,000 title deeds. President William Ruto also promised to revive the agriculture sector. He has delivered subsidised fertiliser for farmers across the country and am glad to know it was received here at Sh3,500 instead of Sh7,000. With the ongoing rains, you will harvest more. Our competitor has done nothing. Join President Ruto to benefit more,” he said.

The Deputy President added that Mr Odinga has been defeated five times and it is time for him to retire.

Speaking earlier in Sagoo, Narok South when he launched the upgrading of 18km of Bokoiyot-Marinwak-Kipkurkuret Sogoo-Tengecha  Road  in Narok South Constituency, Mr Gachagua asked Mr Odinga to wait for 2027, when he can seek the people’s mandate to lead Kenya.

While in Narok South, the Deputy President said the government is keen on protecting the water towers across the country, including the Mau forest.

The government will avail money to help in relocating those who are inside the forest in a humane manner.
