Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja has slammed Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua after he claimed that a section of Rift Valley leaders were interfering with Mt Kenya politics.

Speaking on Wednesday, May 29 at the Bomas of Kenya, Sakaja wondered why the Deputy President was crying foul accusing him of intimidating other leaders in the past.

“Don’t try and intimidate us. we are unbwogable. You can’t be the one bullying people for two years and then, when you’re mentioned for one week, you disappear into the forest,” said Sakaja.The Nairobi Governor asked DP Gachagua to respect other leaders if he wanted to be respected equally.

Sakaja noted that the people of Nairobi elected him as the Governor and no one should claim he put him on the seat.“I have been through a lot and I am not easily intimidated nobody should say I was given the seat. I was elected by the people of Nairobi,” he stated.

Sakaja further claimed that Embakasi North MP James Gakuya is being sponsored as a project against his Nairobi County UDA chairperson bid.

“The person I am competing with is not a candidate, he is a project by some people,” Sakaja claimed.

DP Gachagua has been having a tense relationship with Governor Sakaja and has openly said he monitors how the Nairobi County affairs are being managed.

On April 27, DP Gachagua said he keeps tabs on Nairobi County to ensure it thrives.

“We have homes and families here. If Nairobi is not thriving we will not be happy. So nobody should question our interest in Nairobi because this is the capital city. We will continue working together with the county,” Gachagua said.
