Raila: 'It's a tragedy for Kenya to have Gachagua as DP'

He added; "It is as if he is the Deputy President of Mt Kenya only, other parts of the country do not matter as far as he is concerned."

Odinga further criticised Gachagua for remarking that the government was like a company where the majority shareholders benefit.

"He even says that Kenya is a shareholder company. That there are some communities with more shares and others with fewer shares, others with no shares. That those with no shares have nothing to expect from our government.

"He forgets that the same government collects tax from all over the country and then he tells them they are not shareholders. I would want to ask Mr Ruto publicly to censor his deputy because it is an insult to the country if he goes with Mr Gachagua to Western, Coast, Nyanza when he does not recognise these people as shareholders," said Odinga.

Speaking in Kericho County at a past event, Gachagua likened the government to a company with majority of its shareholders as its supporters.

"You invested in this government and you must reap. You sowed, tilled, put manure and irrigated, and now it is time to reap," the DP is quoted saying.
