You are so mannerless! James Orengo blasts DP Gachagua

Siaya Governor James Orengo has called out Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua saying he has lacked manners. This was after his push and pull with Nairobi governor Johnson Sakaja that involved his move to ban matatus from Nairobi Central Business District (CBD).

The Governor, who was speaking during the memorial service of Roots Party leader George Wajackoyah’s late father Mzee Tito Jakoya in Indangalasia, Kakamega county, told the Deputy President to keep off the affairs of Nairobi.

“Deputy President amekosa adabu… Amekosa adabu kabisa! (The Deputy is so mannerless). I’m saying this because the head of Nairobi County Government is my brother Sakaja. A tough leader who got votes from everywhere within Nairobi. So if there is a problem in Nairobi, Sakaja can only talk with the president Dr Ruto and not through his deputy. That is per the constitution,” Orengo said.

“Nobody can be called to account for the affairs of Nairobi except Governor Sakaja and this is as per the constitution,” he said.

The difference between Gachagu and Sakaja has kicked off a storm with the Kenya Kwanza Alliance with political leaders taking openly sides on the matter.
