Gachagua Settles Squabbles In Kericho County Assembly

19 100

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has mended the division within leaders in the Kericho County Assembly following a disagreement over house leadership.

This follows squabbles witnessed in the County Assembly last week, where a viral video showed some of the Members of the County Assembly (MCAs) engaging in a physical brawl, prompting President William Ruto to issue a stern warning to the leaders. 

The positions that brought contention were those of the majority leader, deputy leader of majority, majority chief whip and deputy majority chief whip.

At a press briefing on Thursday, DP Gachagua noted that he has held discussions with leaders in the County Assembly and has arrived at an amicable decision to settle the rift.

Acting at the behest of President Ruto’s request to settle the matter, DP Gachagua noted that it was important to solve the issues since the county ranks highly in the political matrix and service delivery will be crippled.

“The president tasked me with the responsibility of inviting the leadership of this country for a meeting to sort out the issues causing the conflict with a view of restoring normalcy,” said Gachagua.

“After consultations, we have zeroed down that the conflict stems from a struggle for people to lead and misunderstandings on the house leadership. The leaders have unanimously agreed that we amicably resolve all standing issues and we restore peace.”
