He then went on to tell her to prepare herself to counter the planned protests.
“Rais wetu amempea kazi kubwa sana katika Wizara ya Utawala and Usalama. Ndiye mdogo ya Prof Kithure Kindiki atusaidie. (The president has appointed her to a very crucial role in the Ministry of Interior and National Administration. She is Kithure Kindiki’s assistant and she will help us.)
“Siku ya Juma Tatu uvae jeans na rubber shoes. Yule mzee wa maandamano akipanga kuharibu mali ya watu utoe makucha, tunakujua. (On Monday, I want you to get ready in jeans and rubber shoes. If Azimio protestors plan to destroy property I want you to show your claws, we know you),” Gachagua said.
Additionally, the deputy president said that if Odinga was afraid of facing Ruto, he would facilitate a meeting between the two.
In his speech, the DP also told the residents that President William Ruto had rewarded the region by appointing many of their leaders to his government.
He said that though the region largely voted for Azimio la Umoja leader Raila Odinga, President Ruto was keen to include Kenyans from all communities in his administration.
