The fate of the heroes of our freedom struggle- DP Gachagua on deliberation of Mau.
Speaking during his visit at Nairobi hospital, the second in command affirmed that he is in talks with the president on the deliberation of Mau.
His sentiments were expressed, after he cleared a hospital bill for Mukami, who was a freedom fighter.
He stated,” The president and I are into this matter. A lot of consultations are going on to deliberate on the fate of the heroes of our freedom struggle.”
He further urged all Kenyans who collaborated with the colonizers to gain land, to return the land to its rightful owners.
He stated,”I want to urge all those Kenyans and collaborators who betrayed Mau Mau if God could touch their hearts for them to surrender the thousands of acres they hoard, all the idle lands, as our freedom fighters who fought for the freedom of this country are suffering we request them if they could agree to surrender even if it is a half of the land they hoard.”
Deputy president , Rigathi Gachagua also pointed fingers at the former president, Uhuru Kenyatta for not addressing this issue, when he was still the head of the government.
Gachagua stated,”This is just one of the many cases that face the heroes of our freedom struggle. The previous government has not been in a position to address this matter exclusively.”
Additionally, he addressed the health issue saying, The government is working to provide universal health coverage.
He stated,”One of our pillars is universal health coverage for we have made changes in the National Hospital Insurance Fund(NHIF) with a view of introducing a scheme where every Kenyan is covered so that such situations like the one we are having here today with Mukami Kimathi should not happen again.”
