2027 will be a walkover – Gachagua brags as Ruto warns Raila

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has exuded confidence that 2027 elections will be a walk in the park for his boss, President William Ruto who will be eyeing a second term in office.

Gachagua averred that Ruto will sweep to victory just as he did in 2022 due to his solid credentials

''I can see that you have some network, if our president defeated Uhuru who was with the chiefs and police in 2022, do you think he can lose in 2027? It will be a walkover.

''The future of this country is in Ruto, the other side is full of darkness.'' Gachagua stated at a roadside rally in Busia County on Saturday, August 26, 2023.

He urged leaders from the region to learn from the experience of Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi and National Assembly speaker Moses Wetang'ula who “saw the light” and dumped Raila for Ruto and are now in government.

''We thank Musalia and Wetang'ula for seeing light and crossing over to work with Ruto. Now Musalia is the Prime Cabinet Secretary and Wetang'ula the Speaker of the National Assembly,'' Gachagua added.

On his part, President William Ruto who is on a tour of Busia County assured Kenyans that his government will deliver on the promises made and urged all leaders to work with his administration in making life better for Kenyans.

The Head of State warned the opposition against returning to mass protests, noting that it is not the solution to the challenges that the nation is facing.

''I have heard some people talking about protests again, who told you that the only solution is on protests?

''On street protests and burning roads, destroying businesses and public property, let us forget that.” Ruto stated.

''I want us to work together, avoid chaos and build our country,'' he added.

Azimio la Umoja and Kenya Kwanza are currently involved in talks to address challenges and concerns raised by either side, with the opposition maintaining that returning to the streets is also an option should the talks flop or fail to yield the desired results.
