On Sunday, Vice President Rigathi Gachagua reflected on his conversation with US Senator Chris Coons and revealed that he declined an invitation to speak with opposition leader Raila Odinga.
Speaking to Inooro TV’s Kisirimi, DP Gachagua claimed that Senator Coons, who advocated dialogue as a way to resolve the crisis in Kenya, could not explain why Trump did not speak to President Joe Biden following the last US election. .
According to Gachagua, who dismissed the possibility of a handshake between Raila and the Kwanza government, the United States studied a different situation to solve its political problem.
“I told him yes, I would also like peace to exist in Kenya… but in the United States after Trump’s defeat and there was a lot of chaos, why didn’t you invite him and you told him that you were not given half of the government. ?” asked the second chief.
“I told him to tell Raila that we will not sit down for discussion…. that if he wants to talk to us, he should talk to his MPs and talk to our MPs.
The former Member of Parliament for Mathira claimed that handshakes can reduce the benefits of democratic elections.
“Why should we hold an election then, if some people will come with a protest and demand that we give them a part of the government?” he asked himself.
Regarding the anti-government protests that are expected to resume in the coming weeks, the DP said they will be banned in all areas of the capital.
This is happening while the opposition leader is threatening to file a complaint against Gachagua at the International Criminal Court (ICC).
The former prime minister said in a meeting at Kamukunji Stadium on Sunday that they will charge the DP with an assassination attempt a few weeks ago.
He claimed that the police officers who shot at his car during the protest had received instructions from DP Gachagua.
