‘This Is Our King!’ DP Gachagua Lectures Hecklers At Ruto’s Meeting In Kiambu

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua addressed a gathering following their disruptive behavior at President William Ruto’s event in Kiambu on Wednesday.

A displeased Gachagua reprimanded the hecklers, asserting that heckling did not align with the conduct of the Mt. Kenya people; instead, he referred to it as ‘ODM behavior.’

“This behavior of heckling in front of the king is not the behavior of the Mt. Kenya people. That is ODM behavior, and as your leader, I do not want to see that again,” he said.

He suggested allowing Governor Kimani Wamatangi and Kikuyu Member of Parliament Kimani Ichung’wa to express their views, and if anyone disagreed, they were advised to remain silent.

“When the Governor stands to speak, listen to what he has to say, and when Kimani Ichung’wa speaks, listen. If you disagree with what was said, keep quiet,” said Gachagua.

During his tirade, Gachagua described President Ruto as ‘our sovereign’ and expressed that the audience had caused him humiliation.

“This is our King, the President of Kenya. He has come to bring development to our area. You are bringing shame in front of the President of the Republic of Kenya in an area where we are honorable people,” he stated

“I have been embarrassed as a leader of Mt. Kenya.”

The development tour of Mt. Kenya by President William Ruto faced challenges as political tensions arose among local leaders in Kiambu County, leading to conflicts between them.

While pacifying the turbulence, the President urged political leaders to focus on fulfilling their duties as elected representatives and ensuring the delivery of sufficient services to the public. Additionally, he reassured the nation that there were positive developments in the economic situation.

“Let’s calm down on political matters, particularly those of 2027. As your leader, I ask you to remain calm and patient as things progress. I want to assure you that I will hold a meeting to plan a peaceful approach to politics and end the fighting,” said Ruto.

During the discussion, Senator Karungo Wa Thangwa, Woman Representative Ann Wamuratha, and MP Alice Nganga from Thika Town questioned Kiambu Governor Kimani Wamatangi about his management of county matters.

Ruto and Gachagua expressed displeasure, urging the leaders to reduce their political disagreements and prioritize delivering public services.
