We are under a lot of pressure to negotiate with Raila, DP reveals

The DP noted that the demonstrations have impacted Kibra and Kisumu noting that normalcy has returned to the rest of Nairobi.

Gachagua claimed the Azimio supremo used threats to get into former President Daniel Arap Moi's government, then Mwaki Kibaki and later, Uhuru Kenyatta's Jubilee government, but this will not be allowed in the Kenya Kwanza government.

"Raila has assembled people in the streets to cause violence for him to get into government. He will not get into this government," he vowed.

He applauded Coast residents for maintaining peace and their refusal to participate in Raila's demonstrations.

"I commend Coast residents for their decision not to participate in the demonstrations. I want to tell Raila that it is very unfair to this country to lead protests and destroy businesses. He has no respect for other people's property because he has a lot of wealth," Gachagua said.

Meanwhile, Mvurya said his Ministry will partner with county governments so that the recruitment of seafarers is done transparently by the licensed agencies.

"In the next six months, the Liwatoni fisheries processing ecosystem will be ready and will create 2,500 direct jobs," he said.
