Nairobi Senator Edwin Sifuna has announced that the Azimio coalition plans to move a motion in Parliament to censure Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua.
Sifuna criticized Gachagua’s conduct, stating that his recent statement that the national government is a limited company implied that they are running an exclusionist government.
Sifuna argued that the constitution requires a government formed after elections to serve all Kenyans, regardless of their affiliations.
Azimio intends to discuss Gachagua’s conduct, which they believe is causing division in the nation by implying that some individuals are more important than others.
Sifuna defended Azimio’s stalled leadership changes in the Senate, saying that the ouster of leaders sympathetic to the government was crucial to protect the coalition’s philosophy.
Without these changes, any effort by Azimio to censure Gachagua would have been futile.
Sifuna emphasized that a leader in Parliament must enforce their party’s agendas, explaining that the changes were necessary to align leaders with Azimio’s ideologies.
Jubilee has acknowledged their differences with Azimio, and Sifuna believes that they must have someone who can push their agendas forward.
Last Saturday, Gachagua’s comments on the government being a limited company sparked controversy.
He argued that those who voted for the government should be prioritized over those who supported Azimio, as in the case of company shareholding.
