Let no advisor ask us to negotiate with Odinga- DP Gachagua.
Speaking after officially opening the Nakuru Agricultural Society of Kenya national show, The second in command outlined that the government has no time to hold talks with the opposition leader.
He pointed fingers towards the opposition stating that he has caused mayhem in the country, for his own selfish gains.
He further outlined that Kenya kwanza will not tolerate anymore riots and protests led by Azimio la umoja, serious action will be taken against him.
He stated,”Raila is destroying Nairobi and causing chaos to get a share of the government. We shall not give in to blackmail. Let nobody try to advise us to give in to blackmail. Let no advisor ask us to negotiate with Odinga so that he can be controlled and call off the demonstrations. This is a trend that he has formed,”
Notably, The deputy president stated that Raila has been fighting Kenya for over 40 years through post-election violence and eventually gets a power-sharing deal. He however stood his ground saying nothing of the sort will happen in president William Ruto’s government.
Gachagua stated,”As a government, we have said enough is enough and Raila will not be allowed, under any arrangements again to cause violence, deaths and destroy property. It will not happen. We have a responsibility as a government to protect lives and property.”
“As a government, we want to assure you, though we were silent even if we knew his demonstrations cannot be peaceful, any violent demonstrations will not be allowed to take place,” he added.
