DP Gachagua alleges allies close to him are being threatened

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua says leaders backing him in his Mt Kenya unity quest are being intimidated and coerced to drop their support.

Speaking at the Jesus Compassionate Ministries Church in Ruiru while in the company of Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka and DAP-K leader Eugene Wamalwa, Gachagua maintained that his quest for a united Mt Kenya is unstoppable.

He maintained that his 'One Man One Shilling One Vote' Revenue sharing formula drive and the quest to unite Mt Kenya is unstoppable.

"The journey for uniting this region is complete. The ordinary wananchi, all of them are speaking one language... leaders who are with me in this journey are being intimidated and threatened that if you call for unity shall not get development or if you are seen with the DP things can be very bad...but those are normal things in politics," he said.

"This journey is unstoppable...what is important is not the unity around here at the leaders; the most important unity ni ile ya raia. Am a person who listens to the ground."

The deputy president called on other leaders including President William Ruto to unite his region.

"Kila mtu aunganishe watu wake Raila unganisha watu wako, rais Ruto unganisha watu wako pia," Gachagua added.

The DP while in Ruiru got unlikely allies, with Kalonzo and Wamalwa backing his unity quest.

"Kazi ya kuunganisha watu wako ni muhimu sana," Kalonzo said.

Wamalwa added, "Bwana Gachagua wasikutishe you have friends all over Kenya...you are not out of options."

Gachagua's allies who accompanied him in Ruiru, pushed for the Mt Kenya region to field a presidential candidate in 2027.

"Naibu rais, sisi kama mlima tumechoka na Ruto...we regret voting him as president. Sasa tunasema region hii yetu tunataka tukuwe na mtu mmoja wetu kwa debe ya rais 2027," Former Kiambu Governor Ferdinanard Waititu stated.

Gachagua added: "Kalonzo ni mtoto wetu he is our cousin as a mountain and we should start talking together tupangane."
