Gachagua revealed that the two met in Mombasa in the presence of former Nigeria president Olesegun Obasanjo where the two struck a deal
While dismissing the ongoing bipartisan talks, the second in command further claimed that Raila demanded a handshake, three ambassadors and half of the government.
“Raila asked for half of the government, we said no, he asked for a handshake we said no, he asked for three ambassadors and we said no. We said yes if he wants some money to eat, we can discuss it,” Gachagua said.
However, addressing the funeral of a Mamau Veteran John Njigoya Kagwe, alias Brigadier Kiboko, which was attended by DP Gachagua, Raila wondered when he met the Head of State.
“Mimi nilikutana na Ruto lini? (You’re saying that I met Ruto), when did I met him? Raila wondered.
He further said that he has not asked for a share of the Kenya Kwanza government adding that he was contended for serving as the Prime Minister during the grand coalition government.
“I do not want to share government. I have already served as the Prime Minister,” he added.
The opposition leader further urged the second in command to stay away from the ongoing bipartisan talks and let the team come up with solutions to problems facing the nation.
“Let Kalonzo Musyoka and Kimani Ichung’wah have the talks. You(Rigathi Gachagua), President William Ruto, and I should stay out of the ongoing talks. There is nothing wrong with engaging in talks,” Raila said.
