Fallout of Ruto and Gachagua

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has disclosed that himself and President William Ruto talk every day, an indication of their closeness.

The Second in Command has made the revelation while claiming that there have been attempts to drive them apart by painting them as having fallen out.

But he has noted that there is no fallout between them, and they are still intact, dispelling speculations pointing to strained relations.

“President William Ruto and I are joined at the hip. We talk on a daily basis. My relationship with the President is top-notch,” he said on Inooro FM on Friday.

He added that the people spreading rumours about their supposed fallout are basing their claims on the recent changes in cabinet.

The changes have been seen by some as Ruto stripping him of his powers by promoting Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi.

But Gachagua has said that Kenyans are reading too much into the changes, adding that Ruto has mandated him with a great responsibility.

He claimed that Ruto has given him one of the hardest jobs the country currently has; initiating reforms in the coffee and tea sector.

“The President knew the assignment ahead, and that is the reason he gave me the mandate. The reforms on the coffee are in earnest,” he said.

He added that he has been doing his job wholeheartedly, assuring farmers that things will soon be back to how they used to be before.

“I will look for more markets until we break even. I am now heading to Germany to look for the coffee market, and I can assure you that we aren’t losing on this one,” added Gachagua, the immediate former Mathira Member of Parliament.
