Ndindi Nyoro on succession politics amid push to replace Gachagua

While declaring that he is solidly behind Kenya Kwanza leadership, headed by the President and his Deputy, the Kiharu lawmaker failed to clarify whether he is interested in replacing Gachagua after being fronted by a number of lawmakers.

"We as members of Kenya Kwanza, all of us, have given our President William Ruto and his deputy Rigathi Gachagua total and unconditional support as they lead our nation

"When the two are in front, all of us including me, are the foot soldiers for our leaders. Our work is to support them. We are committed because we have a vision and a plan to take the country's economy forward. After all, if Kenya succeeds, everyone else succeeds and that is why we support our leaders," Nyoro stated.

Nyoro did not however tell his backers to tone down on their criticism of the DP and stop backing him to replace Gachagua, at least for now.

His remarks come days after the President prevailed upon his troops to tone down politics and focus on delivering promises made by the Kenya Kwanza administration during campaigns.
