Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua claims former President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga looted public funds and stashed them in offshore accounts.
While dismissing calls for a dialogue with Odinga, the deputy president said the only discussion the Kenya Kwanza administration is ready to have is on how the ODM leader and Kenyatta will return the money allegedly hidden in Cayman Island.
Gachagua, who spoke on Thursday during the burial of Maragua MP Mary Waithera's mother in Murang'a County, maintained that the government would not be manipulated into sharing power.
“We want to have a discussion with Raila and Uhuru together so that they tell us when they will return the Kenyan money they took to Cayman Island…” he claimed.
“If it is about he (Odinga) coming and we divide the government into two, that is impossible and cannot happen. If they continue saying we are hardliners that is okay. If speaking the truth and saying we cannot be cowed is being hardliners, so be it! We are hardliners.”
Further to this, Gachagua accused Kenyatta and Odinga of importing cheap milk powder at a lower cost before adding water to form milk, then later selling at Sh120 per liter.
“Let them tell us when they will stop importing milk powder for Sh10 and later mixing it with water and selling it to the people for Sh120. If that is the discussion with Odinga and Uhuru, we will have it,” he said.
“We want the two of them to tell us when the Sh15 billion which Uhuru ordered to be paid in 26 minutes will be returned.”
Odinga, who has called for biweekly protests to compel the government to heed their demands among them lowering the cost of living, has insisted that he is not interested in sharing power with Ruto.
Odinga's single and sole purpose is to get a personal stake in the government regardless of what he rants about. His record speaks for itself and anything else he says is blatantly dishonest. If offered a chance he will very quickly change tune and abandon his current lieutenants. That's what he is, that's who he is, period. And for that he is willing and determined to bring the country down with him. He is a spoiled brat but he has now met his match. Ruto is no pushover.
Nothing changes the fact that,
Biggy G Rigathi & kalejinga Ruto has stolen more than ksh 45 Billion in less than 6 months.
& they too are beneficiaries of funds looted by Uhuru Kenyatta.
You act like a mad man in the market place. Is this what you call governing? Shut your mouth and start thinking like an adult, a VP and a mature person. This was a day of mourning and that’s what you said there! Did Uhuru or Raila kill the deceased? I am sorry to say, Kenyans threw their votes down a toilet.
Other than politicians contributing towards funeral expenses, I do not see another valid reason why they should be invited to a funeral unless they are family members. They can mess up a wet dream with their never-ending campaigns.
@Mlandizi, its easy, just pass a law prohibiting political speeches at funerals. It's obvious that politicals take advantage of the "inbuilt'crown" to spew their agenda.It was never like this...
It is even worse for politicians to use places of worship as political play grounds as they do nowdays.Preachers are ok with this so long as politicians sprinkle afew shilling in the collection jar.Nobody seems to stand up to politicians,and yet we elect them.We the voters should have the final word.
You are in power now bwana RG, go for the looted cash and bring it back to the rightful owners, arrest, prosecute and throw the thieves in prison for a long time and repossess their assets for restitution!!! Walk the talk!
Gachagua we are still waiting for the dollar to come down to 85sh.
Until then, could you please restrict your payukaring to the absolute minimum. Like telling your wife to give you githeri.
There goes Kenya’s Donald Trump again payukaring hovyo hovyo to look like you’re better than them while you got refunded tax payer’s money that you’d stolen before, you together with the others who were forgiven by Ruto admin for whatever reasons. Then here you are lecturing other thieves like you. Magi ya kuku bure kabisa.
Watu wa mlima, is this the best you could do? This guy is an embarrassment, please start investigations and prosecute uhuru and raila. Mwizi ni wewe na Ruto, na hiyo milioni 200, utarudisha, you won’t be in power forever.
Don't forget that you, Samoei, and Raila were able to run for an elective public office simply because Wafula Chebukati failed miserably as a result of his failure to read Chapter Six (6) of our New Kenyan Constitution.
Neither you or Samoei should be currently leading the nation as president and vice president simultaneously.
