"They are your students" senator Sifuna hits out at Gachagua

Nairobi Senator Edwin Sifuna has hit out at Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua’s after he censured Trade Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria and President William Ruto’s economic advisor David Ndii.

In a tweet on Sunday, Gachagua told Cabinet Secretaries and Economic Advisors to stop talking down on the people, seemingly referring to Kuria and Ndii.

“Responsible leaders should be sensitive and inspire Hope to the People-the Hope for a Better tomorrow. Talking down on the people and demoralising those who look up to them for solutions and a way out of the difficult situation they find themselves in is not good leadership,” Gachagua wrote.

In a rebuttal, Senator Sifuna has accused Gachagua of leading by example in talking down to Kenyans.

Sifuna referred to incidences where Gachagua told citizens that Kenya Kwanza government has shareholders – those who supported Ruto’s presidency.

“Maybe you sit this one out. There is literally no one in the regime that comes close to you in terms of contempt for the people. You of the “shareholders” fame? No Sir. Sit down. You make Moses Kuria and Ndii sound like page boys in comparison. They are at best, your students,” Sifuna said.

Kuria and Ndii have lately been engaging Kenyans who are protesting the hike in fuel prices.

In their engagements, the two had no hope to give to electorates.

"I don’t believe politicians, and I don’t trust government. If you do either you are a sucker," said Ndii on the government's actions to increase fuel.

On his part, Kuria told Kenyans to brace for higher prices of fuel or “dig their wells.”

"If you keep saying fuel prices have hiked from morning to evening.... why not dig your own well? The whole world knows crude oil prices have hiked, if those noisy people have their well, I am ready to dig it so that fuel prices reduce," Kuria said on Saturday.
