Mutahi Ngunyi advises Gachagua not to fight with Ruto

Political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi has advised Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua to avoid fighting with his boss, President William Ruto.

In a statement on May 19, 2024, Ngunyi noted that it would be wrong for the deputy president to pick a fight against the President.

“Dear Riggy G: Resist the urge to fight William Ruto too early. Not over Military choppers or the size of sandwiches at the State House. Resist,” he said on X.

The political analyst added that the person behind the alleged disagreement between Gachagua and Ruto, was aiming at destroying Gachagua. 

“Trust me. I am wrong sometimes, and right sometimes,” Mutahi Ngunyi added.

Ngunyi’s remarks emerged a day after he had warned the deputy president against having a handshake with former President Uhuru Kenyatta.

According to Ngunyi, a reconciliation between Gachagua and Uhuru may lead to a bad relationship between Gachagua and President Ruto.

“Dear Riggy G. Handshake with Uhuru Kenyatta is a set up. He is the enemy of Ruto. You embrace him, Ruto becomes your enemy,” Ngunyi noted in a statement on May 18.

The political analyst added that Gachagua defeated Uhuru in the August 2022 general elections and should soldier on, without necessarily going back to Uhuru for whatever reasons.

“You defeated Uhuru in broad daylight. Soldier on. You “…Do NOT cross a river by constantly going back to the banks to rest”. Cross it. Kama Mbaya, Mbaya!,” he added.

His remarks came amid reports on allegations of a rift between president Ruto and his deputy.

The reports on the alleged differences were supported by the fact that Gachagua had been missing from key state functions in the country.

However, on May 19, State House spokesperson Hussein Mohamed dismissed the reports on the fallout.

“To the best of my knowledge, there is no issue between the President and his Deputy,” Hussein said.

Meanwhile, speaking on Sunday May 19, 2024 Sacred Heart Endarasha Catholic Church, Kieni Constituency, Nyeri County, the deputy president urged residents in the Mount Kenya region to unite and avoid divisive politics.
