As the recent tiff between Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua and Nairobi County governor Johnson Sakaja rages on, undertones have suggested that at the heart of the matter is a much larger contest pitting Amani National Congress party leader Musalia Mudavadi against the DP, and now the president’s camp is speaking out.

Self-confessed Hustler Movement spokesperson Pastor Gerald Bitok was speaking while making an appearance on Radio Jambo’s weekly political show Mazungumzo Wazi Wazi which was hosted by the station’s presenter Bramwell Mwololo. Alongside him In the studio were KANU Political Affairs Director Fred Okang’o, former Jubilee Party nominated senator Isaac Mwaura and self-confessed Hustler Movement spokesperson Chris Bitok. Nairobi County Executive Committee Member Talent, Skills, Development and Care Brian Mulama who is also the Amani National Congress party Nairobi Chapter Chairman was also in on the action. Lawyer and activist Brian Weke connected with them through the phone.

Bitok claimed that by virtue of the fact that Gachagua had been elected as part of the presidency while Sakaja had been elected governor of Nairobi obviously meant that wrangles over the running of the county and National government would arise due to perceived overlapping of roles of the two in several grey areas.
Bitok went ahead to claim that the only reason behind the perceived huge animosity between the two, accompanied by screaming headlines, was nothing but a simple case of media sensationalism purely for ratings.

An apparent rift between Mudavadi and Rigathi first came to the fore in April last year when the then Mathira MP insisted that William Ruto’s running for the August 9 presidential election must come from the Mount Kenya region.
Rigathi said the leaders from the region agreed with the Ruto to pick his deputy from Mount Kenya before Amani National Congress party leader Musalia Mudavadi and Ford-K’s Moses Wetangula joined their camp.
“Ruto’s running mate must come from the mountain. Before we were joined by the other people, we had our own arrangements that we had discussed and my position has been, whatever had been agreed upon earlier cannot change drastically to the disadvantage of the Mount Kenya region,” Rigathi said when he appeared at a local television station on a Sunday evening.
