"Unatajwa wiki moja unaanza kulia" - Sakaja Goes Frothing At Rigathi Gachagua

“Unatajwa wiki moja unaanza kulia” – Sakaja Goes Frothing At Rigathi Gachagua

Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja has launched a stinging attack on Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua for what he describes as bullying and disrespect.

Speaking on Wednesday at a UDA Delegates Conference in Kenya’s Bomas, Sakaja slammed the Deputy President, accusing him of trampling on other elected officials while screaming foul when the same energy is directed at him.

The county head chastised the country’s second-in-command, ordering him to toughen up and stop tagging other leaders in his political fight.

He said: “Huwezi kuwa you are bullying people for two years, then unatajwa wiki moja unaanza kulia. Do you know bullies are the biggest cowards?”

“Mpaka unaenda sijui kwa msitu, sijui wapi…if you want respect, respect other leaders. If you don’t respect those leaders, then respect the people who put them there.”

Sakaja went on to challenge the DP to fight for the Nairobi County governorship seat in the 2027 elections if he did not respect his capacity.

“I’ve been through a lot and I’m not easily intimidated, nobody has the right to say I was given the seat. I was elected,” charged Sakaja.

“In 2027, you are free to run for any elective post, run and be Nairobi Governor.”

Sakaja’s comments come after a purported feud between the DP and his boss on allegations that some of the President’s allies in his Rift Valley backyard were undermining his (Gachagua) capabilities.

A visibly enraged Gachagua went bare-knuckles on Saturday at a gathering in Kesses, Uasin Gishu County, saying that Ruto’s allies were already having meetings in the Mt. Kenya region to create 2032 succession politics to his detriment.

“The problem is a few leaders here from this region who have proximity to the President ndio wanakoroga siasa ya huko kwetu kudanganya watu eti waaanze kupanga mambo ya 2032,” he said.

“The few people here wamefura wamekuwa na kiburi nyingi, wanafikiria ati sasa wamefika wanaweza kuja huko eti wapange viongozi wa mlima, ata sisi hatutakuja kuwapangia siasa yenu, lazima tuheshimiane.”

Sakaja denied any rift with Gachagua in April of this year, describing the DP as his superior and a good leader who should be respected.

Reports of ill blood between the two arose as a result of Sakaja’s ambition for the UDA party chairmanship in Nairobi during the upcoming elections.

“I have no differences with the Deputy President. He is a senior man who is respected, he has been in politics, and even though he got in politics after us, he came in and became popular. He is a good leader who should be respected,” he said.

“I’ve never spoken ill of him. I have never mentioned him. I respect him as our leader, vice president, and deputy party leader.”
