There is no room for any dialogue with political thuggery- Gachagua.
The second in command, Rigathi Gachagua has opined that Kenya has always been peaceful until recently when Raila launched his demonstrations.
He stated that the opposition leader, will not coerce them into any talks by use of violence with Kenyans in the streets.
To what he termed as political thuggery, Hon. Rigathi Gachagua has stood his ground saying Kenya kwanza will not engage in any dialogue.
He stated,”Kenya has been peaceful since the last elections; we remain so.The violence sponsored by Azimio leader Raila Odinga will not lure us to any imagined talks. There is no room for any dialogue with political thuggery since 1997.”
Gachagua further stated that what happened on Monday was not a peaceful demonstration as Raila had put it, it was violence, thuggery which includes looting and disturbance of businesses.
He highlighted that the church leaders are persuading them to hold talks for the sake of peace but he believes Kenya was peaceful until Raila started demonstrations.
He stated,”It is crystal clear there was no demonstration on Monday. It was pure thuggery and looting of people’s property.”
“The church leaders are encouraging us to hold talks for the sake of peace. But we have had peace until the chaos sponsored by the opposition on Monday,” he added.
He expressed that this political violence must come to an end because Kenyans are the ones suffering, Gachagua urged church leaders to talk to Raila Odinga.
He stated,”It can’t be that after every electoral cycle, we are focusing on talks after a streak of violence and destruction of property by known political criminals.”
“The church ought to summon the opposition leader for talks on how to stop causing violence after losing elections,” he added.
DP Gachagua was speaking this when he flagged off over 1000 of 90kg bags of maize donated by Uasin Gishu farmers, for the people who have been severely affected by famine and drought in Laikipia County.
