    DP Gachagua: Raila is jealous and should stop advising our government.

    Published on

    Gachagua:

    The government of President William Ruto has no time for Raila Odinga, according to Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua.

    The DP was responding to a remark by Odinga in which he called Ruto a “puppet of the West” and accused him of advocating for foreign biotechnology.

    On Monday, Gachagua spoke while leading more than 100 officials in launching the “drought flash appeal” initiative in Lagdera subcounty, Garissa.

    Raila:

    Odinga called on Kenyans to fight the introduction of genetically modified (GMO) maize at a press briefing on Sunday.

    He said that since the proper procedures for making such a decision were not followed, and the will of the people was not taken into account, abolishing the ban was unconstitutional.

    Gachagua:

    Although he did not address the GMO controversy head-on, Gachagua did say that the government was heading in the right direction in terms of providing for the people.

    Raila should quit instructing us on what to do and what not to do,” since the last time he offered advice to the government led by Uhuru Kenyatta, the nation was in debt to the tune of Sh2 trillion.

    Gachagua mentioned

    Raila is merely envious that Ruto has had high-level conversations with development partners twice in less than 100 days in office. which are bearing fruit for our people right now.

    Gachagua added

    Gachagua said the government is moving quickly to build the first 30 dams planned as part of a public-private partnership in response to the drought.

    To this purpose, he requested ASAL governors to propose sites for dam construction to the ASAL and Regional Developments CS.

    Governor Nathif Jama:

    Rigathi made this remark in response to an appeal made by Governor Nathif Jama of Garissa to national and development partners, pleading with them to help the ASAL construct giant dams in order to capture water for dryland farming and as a long-term drought intervention measure.

    Gachagua:

    Further, the DP stressed the need of developing renewable energy sources like solar and wind among governors.

    He said that measures for financial transfer are being formulated by the government and that each household impacted by the drought would get Sh2,700 per month.

    At this moment, cash transfer is the most effective intervention strategy for drought,

    He stated.
