‘Polisi wasome wapate kazi’ Ruto’s running mate blunders in public again

by Amos Khaemba

Since Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua was named as presidential running mate to William Ruto, has been dominating headlines over controversial statements.

His loose tongue had become a darling of the Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya coalition party team, who has been using his remarks to incriminate Ruto.

In the recent past, the Mathira MP had become a little bit careful with the choice of his word forcing ODM Secretary General Edwin Sifuna to call on the UDA presidential flag bearer to stop hiding his running mate.

Edwin Sifuna’s prayer has been answered as William Ruto’s 2022 presidential running mate has blundered again.

Speaking in Uthiru on Sunday, June 5, Gachagua left Kenyans talking after he suggested that police officers deserve a better job than what they are doing currently.

The vocal legislator said that if the Kenya Kwanza alliance forms the next government, they will increase the salaries of police officers and take the police officers back to school to pursue degrees to secure better jobs.

“Hawa polisi tutaangalia mambo tap, tunataka kuwatengenezea mshahara na marupurupu na wasome wapate Kazi (For police officers we shall look into their issues, we plan to increase their salaries and allowances so that they pursue degrees for them to get a job)” Rigathi said in the presence of DP Ruto.

This is not the first controversial remark by the Mathira MP since his nomination as Ruto’s running mate.

At one point Gachagua left many Kenyans talking after insinuating that big companies such as Safaricom and Kenya Airways should be done away with and proceeds given to smaller traders.

In an interview on Inooro TV on Tuesday, May 24, Rigathi explained that small businesses stand a better of contributing more taxes than a few corporate entities.

“There is no need for a few corporate entities like Safaricom paying taxes. Just sell them and give the money to small traders. Because their impact will be thirty times more than from just one big corporate.” Gachagua said.

Recently a video that has since gone viral, the vocal Mathira MP is captured downplaying the importance of the Ukambani voting bloc in Ruto’s quest for the presidency.

“Makueni, Machakos, and Kitui counties have 1.5 million votes. Surely can those votes account for anything?” Gachagua said.
