Mambo Mseto has this evening learned that the relationship between Deputy President Hon Rigathi Gachagua and Nairobi Governor Hon Johnson Sakaja appears to have irreversibly soured, with the latest incident occurring when the city boss directly responded to the deputy regarding remarks made earlier in Lang’ata.

According to the latest reports, Nairobi Governor Hon Johnson Sakaja stated that people should refrain from creating issues where none exist, adding that he is certain Gachagua does not aspire to be Nairobi Governor and that he is not interested in the Deputy President position.

Responding to DP Gachagua’s criticism of Nairobi’s performance, Sakaja emphasized the importance of consulting Nairobians for accurate data on the city’s progress.

Earlier in the day, Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua explained his interest in Nairobi politics. Speaking during the Lang’ata Women Empowerment program on Saturday, April 27, Gachagua reiterated his commitment to safeguarding the city, a top destination for investors in Africa.

He pledged to involve President William Ruto in monitoring leadership and development progress in Nairobi, citing his various investments within the city.
Elsewhere, the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) commenced its grassroots elections on Friday, April 26.

However, the initial round encountered significant challenges, prompting calls for a redo. The grassroots elections, estimated to cost Ksh200 million, faced technological glitches resulting in some leaders being unable to cast their votes.

Furthermore, allegations surfaced of deceased individuals being on ballots and winning elections.

“How can one win an election after being deceased for a year?” questioned Catherine Wachira, expressing concern over the integrity of the process.

Aspirants from Embakasi South Constituency raised concerns over a purported scheme to manipulate the elections, calling for a fresh round of voting. They allege the installation of leaders without genuine participation.
