Kieni Member of Parliament (MP) Kanini Kega has hit out at his Mathira counterpart Rigathi Gachagua over constant attacks against President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Speaking at Thiba Grounds in Kirinyaga Count, the Mathira MP accused Uhuru of abandoning the people of Mt Kenya region and joined forces with ODM leader Raila Odinga.
“Uhuru, you said you will come to Mt. Kenya and explain to sell Raila as your preferred choice and reveal why you fell out with Ruto. We welcome you, we are waiting for you on the ground
“Don’t take long. We have missed you. Since we elected you, you deserted us and joined hands with Raila. Come home and explain what went wrong,” Gachagua said.
Following the remarks, Kanini Kega has come to the rescue of the Head of State taking issue with Gachagua, accusing him of attacking Uhuru despite developmental changes he has made in his constituency.
“We want to single out the neighbouring MP here, Hon. Rigathi Gachagua who has been leading the battalion of attacking President Uhuru Kenyatta. Trying to say that President Uhuru has done nothing and if you go to Mathira, his constituency, you will see a lot of road networks that have been undertaken by this government
“However, due to personal interests you want to guen a blind eye and say that the President has not done anything,” the Kieni MP told journalists.
