Mathira Member of Parliament Rigathi Gachagua has now changed tune and is defending President Uhuru Kenyatta’s choice of endorsing the Orange Democratic Movement leader Raila Odinga for the country’s top seat in the 2022 polls.
As 2022 politics takes shape, top political bigwigs are now taking stands on political parties ahead of the long-awaited Electoral day.
Mathira Constituency member of Parliament Rigathi Gachagua has now supported President Kenyatta’s choice to endorse his handshake partner for the country’s top seat in 2022.
The outspoken lawmaker allied to Deputy President William Ruto shocked many after asserting that if the head of State has decided to endorse his long-term political enemy, he has a right to decide what he wants.
Gachagua also urged the Head of State and his outfit to let them popularize the Second in command whenever they want in peace, as he has been given space to market the former Prime Minister.
“Rais wetu amemua kuuza Raila na tunaheshimu uamuzi wake sisi kama Hustlers. Kama umeamua kusupport wale wapinzani wake wa kitambo akatusahau sisi wenye tulimsaidia kushinda Kitu ni sawa kabisa na tunaheshimu hivi. Lakini sasa tunaomba tu atuache tusukume Deputy President wetu na amani kwa sababu ni uamuzi wetu pia,” Gachagua has said.
