President Ruto Invokes Uhuru Kenyatta’s Name While Publicly Reprimanding Gachagua Amid Fallout Claims

In a public display of political tension, President William Ruto rebuked his deputy, Rigathi Gachagua, over the latter’s push for Mt. Kenya unity, a move perceived by some as fostering tribalism.

The disagreement unfolded during a speech in Nakuru County, where Gachagua defended his call for regional unity, clarifying it was not an exclusionary tactic against other communities.

“The unity we call for is not against anybody. It is the unity of purpose so that people with unique challenges and peculiar interests that are specific to themselves so that once we do that, we have one united country,” Gachagua stated, standing firm on his position.

However, President Ruto, addressing the gathering after Gachagua, underscored the need for national unity, dismissing any form of divisive politics.

“I want to ask you leaders, all of whom have leadership positions, that please my friends and brothers, let us unite and work together, let us not divide Kenyans, let us work together for the unity of this nation,” Ruto urged.

Emphasizing his commitment to eradicating tribalism, Ruto invoked the legacy of his collaboration with former President Uhuru Kenyatta.

“I came here with Mheshimiwa Uhuru Kenyatta in 2013 when this country had a great challenge and told you that we wanted to do away with the demons of tribalism from Kenyan politics,” he reminded the audience.

The exchange highlighted a rift within the Kenya Kwanza Alliance, raising concerns about the coalition’s internal coherence and its implications for national unity.
