Please respect our former President- Gachagua to Raila.
Deputy president, Rigathi Gachagua has stated that the opposition leader, Raila Odinga needs to reapect the former president, Uhuru Kenyatta.
Speaking at Lamu yesterday, Hon. Gachagua highlighted that even though Uhuru waa misled and Joined the Azimio la Umoja camp, he still needs to be respected.
He stated that the country forgives him for many things, but not misleading a former president and taking him to anti- government rallies.
He cited the incident where Raila held a rally immediately after the burial of Goerge Magoha, accompanied by Uhuru Kenyatta.
He stated,”We forgive him for many things, but not for misleading Uhuru Kenyatta.”
“Please respect our former President. Even if he (Uhuru) was misled and the economy was ruined, he is our respected leader. We want his respect to be upheld, he should not be taken to rallies. It ruins our respect as Kenyans,” Gachagua added.
In the Nyanza rally, Uhuru affirmed that Raila Odinga is still his party leader, and even though he had left active politics, he is still not tired.
He stated,”Even though I have left active politics, I am still a follower of Raila. I supported him that time (during campaigns), and I will still support him because I believe he is an honest person who wants to unite Kenyans. It is democratic and my right to support whoever I want.”
“I am retired but not tired. You know my party leader is Raila,” he added.
He however, challenged the ruling government to make sure their manifesto comes to light.
