Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has told ODM leader Raila Odinga to treat former President Uhuru Kenyatta with respect and stop dragging him to rallies.
The Deputy President blamed Odinga for “downgrading” the 4th Kenyan president by engaging him in public rallies.
Gachagua was speaking at a church service in Mpeketoni, Lamu County which was also attended by President William Ruto.
“Please respect our former President. Even if he (Uhuru) was misled and the economy was ruined, he is our respected leader. We want his respect to be upheld, he should not be taken to rallies. It ruins our respect as Kenyans,” said the Deputy President.
Gachagua cited an incident where Uhuru accompanied Raila in a public rally in Nyanza, after the burial of former Education CS George Magoha. and said they forgive Raila for many things but not for misleading Uhuru Kenyatta.
