Gachagua: Gov’t is a company; some Kenyans are majority shareholders, others have none

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has declared that government appointments and contracts are a preserve of those who voted for Kenya Kwanza government.

Gachagua says the Kenya Kwanza government will reward its staunch supporters and those who toiled to put the current government in office and give least consideration to members of the opposition.

“This government is a company that has shares. There are owners who have the majority of shares, and those with just a few, while others do not have any. You invested in this government and you must reap. You sowed, tilled, put manure and irrigated, and now it is time to reap,” the country’s second-in-command said on Sunday.

Gachagua who was speaking in Kericho said it is laughable that some members of the opposition had started trooping to State House seeking government positions.

He said even though the government will serve all Kenyans, it is prudent, fair and logical to reward its supporters with government appointments

“Some are criticising me for saying those who sowed reap first, but there is nothing wrong. Their time of reaping will come some day in what remains after those who sowed have finished reaping,” said Gachagua.

Gachagua insisted that that those who voted the other way must learn a lesson about elections.

“Elections have significance. You cannot make noise talking ill of Ruto and after he wins you get in line to get benefits before those who were with him.

Gachagua said he had appointed himself as the guardian of state house and will ensure that all those who did not support Kenya Kwanza are locked out of all Government plum positions.

“That is my work at State House; controlling that queue and deciding who is ahead of whom,” he added.

He was speaking during a tour of various projects in Kericho County.
