A section of Kenya Kwanza leaders warn Gachagua

A section of Kenya Kwanza leaders have issued a stern warning to Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua and his allies, calling on them to desist from divisive politics

Speaking during a Sunday service on June 9, 2024 in Laikipia, they accused Gachagua allies of blackmailing other leaders who disagreed with him.

Led by National Assembly Speaker Moses Wetangula, they emphasized their strong demand for unity of purpose and the need to embrace cohesion.

They added that they will not permit anyone who takes the lead to divide the nation along tribal and ethnic lines.

Instead of engaging in outdated politics that would further polarize the nation and exacerbate ethnic tensions, Wetangula challenged elected officials to concentrate on providing services to the Kenyan people. 

He emphasized the necessity for leaders to search for a potential revenue sharing formula that would work well with all Kenyans in mind.

According to Wetangula, there are numerous elements, including challenges of marginalization, infrastructure development, education, and services that need to be considered during allocation of national resources.

The leaders made the remarks during a Sunday service and fundraiser for the building of the church’s multipurpose hall at Mary Mother of Graces Catholic Parish in Marmanet, Laikipia West Constituency.

Other leaders present during the Sunday service include National Assembly Leader of Majority Kimani Ichung’wa, Cabinet Secretary for Investment, Trade, and Industrialization, Rebecca Miano, Senator John Kinyua of Laikipia, County Women Representative Jane Kagiri, Laikipia West Member of Parliament, among others.

The leaders objected to what they perceived to be outbursts from Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua during his pardon in the Mount Kenya leadership dispute.

Meanwhile, they urged lawmakers and government employees to follow President Ruto’s recent order for leaders to refrain from engaging in tribal and ethnic politics.

Additionally, the Kenya Kwanza leaders disagreed on the One-Man-One Vote-One-Shilling calls in the revenue allocation discussion.

Ichung’wah instructed Senators to draft a bill that will establish the revenue division process in compliance with the necessary requirements and forward their recommendations to the Commission of Revenue Allocation (CRA).
