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.
