- Njuki said Gachagua should hold the political fort as President William Ruto runs the economy.
- The governor said the DP has their support as they will rally behind him in that quest.
Tharaka Nithi Governor Muthomi Njuki has asked Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua to sustain pressure on Azimio leader Raila Odinga to ensure the Kenya Kwanza development agenda is not derailed.
He said that if the Opposition leader is allowed to run amok, Kenya Kwanza risks being a one term regime as it nearly happened to the late President Mwai Kibaki.
"If the political element is not taken charge of, we will end up being like Hon Kibaki who did so much for this country but almost lost his second bid because they were no taking care of the politics," he said.
He was speaking at Kianyaga Boys High School when the DP visited his former school.
Njuki said Gachagua should hold the political fort as President William Ruto runs the economy.
The governor said the DP has their support as they will rally behind him in that quest.
"We are proud of you and we are behind you and we want to tell you that hapo ndio tuko. So as the president is taking care of the economy, do not shy to take of care of politics. It is that politics that defends that economy," he said.
On Wednesday, Gachagua said it was about time the ODM leader was dealt with over his incessant rattling of governments through demonstrations.
"We shall face that Mzee. That Mzee has troubled Kenya for the last 60 years together with his father, the time to finish with him is now, he will go for good," he said.
Njuki condemned Monday's mass action and Raila's call for his supporters to storm State House.
He said the antics the ODM leader seeks to engage in cannot be acceptable in a democratic country like Kenya.
"I have never heard in any democratically elected government where somebody decides to be and live in his own banana republic and even conceive the thought that you can walk to the highest seat of power, just walk in and storm and invade it as if you are invading a football match."
Raila has called for mass action on Monday to protest against the high cost living and the alleged theft of elections.
Speaking on Thursday in Nakuru, he maintained that the demonstrations were going to be peaceful, in accordance with the law.
"I want Kikuyu businessmen not to be scared. Let them not be disturbed by the propaganda, we are going to protect everyone's business," he said.
