The no nonsense Deputy president Rigathi Gachagua on Tuesday stamped his authority further on Musalia Mudavadi as he took over the office at the Harambee Annex.
Rigathi through his official social media handles shared photos where he had met a number of dignitaries from the United Nation.
“I was happy to receive Ms Hanna Tetteh the Special Envoy of the UN Secretary General to the Horn of Africa who called on me at my office in Harambee Annex . I assured her together with the delegation that accompanied her of Kenya’s commitment to peace and stability in the region.” Said Rigathi.
From the above post, it was evident that the deputy president was communicating to Mudavadi to forget about stepping his foot at Harambee Annex.
Words had been going round that Mr. Rigathi Gachagua had been allocated two floors at the office of the president and he would have to let go Ruto’s former office to Musalia Mudavadi who is likely to be the prime minister (chief cabinet secretary).
Prior to the election of Uhuruto, the Harambee Annex was used by former prime minister Raila Odinga during the Nusu Mkate government before it was occupied by Ruto in his capacity as the deputy president.
As a result, most people believe that the decision to lock Mr. Gachagua from the building was informed by the fact that the building was originally being used by Mr. Odinga and it was only okay for the same to be given to Mudavadi because their positions of prime minister may somehow be similar.
A day earlier, Rigathi Gachagua had killed Mudavadi’s hopes of ever setting his foot near Ruto’s former office as he revealed that he will make it his office.
“We are now ready to work and change our country’s trajectory towards recovery. I have settled at my new office at Harambee House Annex and it’s all systems go,” He said.
