Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has reassured Kenyans that his relationship with President William Ruto is top-notch.
On his X page, the DP said that the two are joined at the hip.
“He has mandated me with a great responsibility because he understands my output. We shall continue working for Kenyans until the end of our term,” he noted.
The sentiments come shortly after the Head of State reorganized his cabinet.
In his defense, Gachagua emphasized that it is the prerogative of the President to organize and reorganize his team at will.
“President just reorganized his team for effective delivery of the services. There is no one who was removed from office,” he said,
He further urged Kenyans not to read too much into the reshuffle as he asked those given new mandates to work with diligence and commitment and ensure that their work is visible to the public.
On unity of the mountain, Gachagua said that it is stable, peaceful, and united as before.
“It is the media that is trying to portray a rift between the leaders of the mountain. I will lead from the front in ensuring that the leadership of the mountain continues holding together and will bring on board every leader from the region.”
On police deployment in Haiti, the DP said that the people are like our own people.
“If you look at the people of Haiti, you will definitely see your sister or brother in trouble. Our policemen have a very good track record across the world,” he said.
He in addition noted that the UN Security Council, after thoroughly checking on the output of Kenyan police officers recommended them to join forces with other officers across the world to bring order in Haiti.
“The UN has given our officers affirmation that they can be entrusted as the best in calming chaos and bringing order.”
Meanwhile Gachagua has warned powers who are using their monopoly of power to sabotage the coffee farmers and millers.
“They have blocked the auction so that we can panic and fall for their tricks. We are not relenting. I will look for more markets until we break even,” he said.
In the coming week, the DP noted he will be headed to Germany to look for a new coffee market.
In conclusion, Gachagua noted that the Nation is doing very well on the war against drug abuse.
“We are currently 70% done. We are not relenting on this war,” he said.
The DP said that he will engage all religious leaders, political leaders, and influential people in the society to join his office in the war to enhance chances of coming out triumphant.
