Gachagua: Anyone planning something against Ruto should prepare to face me

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has vowed that he will not allow any individual planning ill against President William Ruto to triumph.

Speaking during an interdenominational church service at Kapsabet showground in Nandi County on Sunday, DP Gachgua stressed his commitment to shun away those planning to sabotage the president claiming that he will defend him at whatever cost.

He further noted that the respective individuals should be ready to first face him before going to his boss.

"Whoever is planning something against president Ruto should be prepared to face me because that is my job. My work is to protect him," he said.

The Second-in-Command further went on to pour cold water on the nationwide protests championed by Azimio la Umoja coalition leader Raila Odinga, arguing that they are only aiming to force a handshake with the government.

DP Gachagua was definite to note that he will not allow Raila the advantage to achieve a handshake, noting that he will be the one to blame if it happens.

"This man is trying to force a handshake. And I have placed traps around State House so wherever he is seen he is grasped because if we allow him into our government he will destroy it," he said.

"Also Mr.President if you might be having plans to have a handshake with him I will not accept that."

He further claimed that former President Uhuru Kenyatta is sponsoring the protests, particularly the one set to be held in Nairobi on Monday.

"I urge you my brother Uhuru Kenyatta, please this country was very nice to you they made you a king. You left us with nothing and the little that is remaining for poor people you are giving Raila Odinga and his people to come and destroy it. How ungrateful can you be to us to fund Azimio and create chaos in Nairobi to come and destroy property?" he posed.
