- The details of the meeting at Gachagua's Harambee Annex office were not immediately disclosed.
- The two leaders have roles separated by a razor-thin line.
Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua on Tuesday held private talks with Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi.
The details of the meeting at Gachagua's Harambee Annex office were not immediately disclosed.
“This afternoon, I held a consultative meeting with the Prime Cabinet Secretary Hon. @MusaliaMudavadi at Harambee House Annex Office,” Tweeted Gachagua.
On his Tweet, Musalia did not divulge details of their meeting with Gachagua.
“I met with H.E. Deputy @rigathi this afternoon at his Harambee Annex office where we held consultations on matters of the State,” Musalia twitted.
This was the first face to face meeting between Gachagua and Musalia since the latter was sworn in as the Prime Cabinet Secretary last month.
While Gachagua's office is constitutionally recognised, the one of Musalia is seen as a political one crafted to honour a political debt.
Gachagua is the President's principal deputy and takes charge when Ruto is away.
Musalia's roles include coordinating and supervising Government Ministries and State Departments.
Mudavai also facilitates inter-ministerial coordination of cross-functional initiatives and programs, a role that requires close working relationship with Gachagua.
Tuesday's talks came after weeks of speculations of a perceived cold war over the razor thin line that separates their roles.
The two leaders have previously affirmed their cordial relationship to deliver on the Kenya Kwanza manifesto and rubbished the suggestions sheer imagination.
Musalia made a political comeback after decades in the cold following his failed presidential bid in 2013.
The Amani National Congress boss was handed the PCS portfolio as part of his political agreement with President William Ruto.
