Gachagua said he was the one who rallied the Kikuyu community to vote for Sakaja in the August 9, General Election and that he should not make decisions that will hurt Mt Kenya, business owners.
The DP was reacting to governor Sakaja’s plan of restoring sanity and order in the city by kicking out matatus plying various upcountry routes out of the Central Business District.
However, on Tuesday, January 10, the county boss clapped back at the deputy president for advancing the interests of the Kikuyu community.
While appearing for an interview on Inooro TV on Tuesday, January 10, Sakaja said there is no community that is being targeted.
The UDA governor said Nairobi is a special county that cannot be governed from the lenses of tribe lines.
“There is something called Nairobi reality, which is about its cosmopolitan nature and the political party diversity therein,” Sakaja said.
While insisting that Nairobi is an international interest, the former Nairobi senator further stated that to have a working Nairobi government he must reach out to all, negotiate, enter into concessions and pursue the unity of purpose that will ease service delivery.
He revealed that he has been consulting both President William Ruto and Opposition leader Raila Odinga who he said was instrumental in the consensus that saw Azimio la Umoja land three CEC slots.
The governor instead faulted the deputy president for publicizing his differences with him adding that the DP should have reached out to him first instead of criticizing his work in public meetings.
“Maybe there are instances where we did not agree with each other or where he feels like things did not go well and it would have been good to sit down and talk rather than going to the public,” Governor Sakaja said.
