Gachagua finally breaks silence after Azimio’s Wednesday demonstration

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has expressed his disappointment and described Wednesday’s protests by Azimio as “shameful.”

During the launch of a Parliamentary Conservation and Climate Change Caucus in Nairobi on Thursday, Gachagua lamented the loss of lives and the damage to property that occurred during the violent demonstrations that took place in various parts of the country.

Preferring not to dwell on the details of the events, Gachagua simply stated, “It is a shame and does not deserve my comment.”

Instead, he urged elected leaders to stay focused on their responsibilities, emphasizing that they have a contract with the electorate, and they must fulfill their obligations until the end of their five-year term.

Gachagua highlighted the contractual nature of the relationship between elected leaders and the people, drawing a parallel between his partnership with President William Ruto and the commitment they have to the Kenyan people, subject to renewal or termination. He encouraged other leaders to reflect on their own agreements with their constituents.

Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki placed blame on the organizers of the protests for the widespread destruction of property and looting.

In a statement released on Wednesday evening, Kindiki announced that the government had mobilized all law enforcement agencies and the institutions of the criminal justice system to swiftly investigate the events and apprehend and prosecute all those involved in planning and carrying out the crimes, including those who funded or assisted the offenders.
