Dp Gachagua Begs Mama Ngina for Forgiveness Over 2022 Campaigns

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has apologised to former President Uhuru Kenyatta’s mother, Mama Ngina Kenyatta, for the fallout in 2022.

During a roundtable interview with journalists from the Mt Kenya region on Monday morning, the DP revealed that the lawmakers were carried away by the political activities that were sweeping the country at the time.

He added that the current climate has caused some lawmakers to lose respect for the former First Lady.


“2022 politics had become so dirty. It had reached a point, where we had lacked respect, hurling insults to Mama Ngina,” the DP told the press.

“I wouldn’t again, like the Mt Kenya community, for us to get to that point again of lacking respect for our elders. I would like to ask for forgiveness from Mama Ngina.”

When asked if he would seek a peace meeting with former President Uhuru Kenyatta to outline the future of Mt Kenya politics, Gachagua replied, ‘These things settle themselves.’

A storm arose in the country in March 2022, a few months before the August general election, when some leaders criticised the former first lady.

Leaders close to Kenya Kwanza had encouraged Mama Ngina to stay out of politics after she advised her son’s supporters to follow in his political footsteps.

“He (Uhuru) didn’t have a problem (with DP Ruto), but if your deputy shows you disrespect, would you stick there? You will move on,” the former First Lady advised at the time.

Uhuru had bypassed his then-deputy William Ruto to endorse former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s presidential ambition.

“I wish she would keep off politics. If she decides to play politics when the field becomes crowded, stay in the firing line,” Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei fired off.

Women leaders later sought an apology from the Kenya Kwanza leaders, claiming that their words were disrespectful to the then-Head of State.

During his interview, Gachagua also stated that the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) between Uhuru and Raila failed owing to arrogance.

“BBI failed because its proponents were arrogant, beating their chests telling us it will be forced down our throats like medicine. If they approached the entire situation with respect, we would have considered passing it,” he stated.
