Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has found fault in the display of flamboyance by a section of politicians from Rift Valley.

Lately, the leaders have been spotted flying in hired choppers and splurging monies in fundraisers and other gatherings.

Speaking in Kesses, Uasin Gishu county, on Saturday, May 25, Gachagua seemed to question the sources of the resources being dished out by the politicians.He accused them of putting the region in a full-time political mood at a time when they should be helping President William Ruto to deliver.

“If we put this country on the political mood of 2032, when will we work for the people? And where are all these resources coming from? When Kenyans are suffering? Millions of shillings are being dished while Kenyans are suffering,” said Gachagua.

He pointed out that it was wrong for elected members allied to the government to waste time moving from one county to another politicking instead of serving those who elected them and helping implement the Kenya Kwanza Administration’s agenda.

Gachagua said political tourism is causing the lawmakers to lose focus.

“I urge the MPs to stay in their Constituency and serve their people. The habit of political tourism must stop. This is what is giving us trouble,” he said at the event held at Seiyo Secondary School in the Constituency.

The DP also said his resolve to support the President is firm and will not be shaken.

“We said we would support the President fully. We support the President 100%. We will be behind the President because we have a 10-year debt. And we will pay the debt. We are working well with the President,” he said.

“As I lead as Deputy President together with Cabinet Secretaries, Governors, senators, MPs, our focus should only be to help the President succeed. Period. Everything else can wait. 2032 succession politics must stop,” he added.
