DP Gachagua: Ignore Raila’s Monday ‘Public Holiday’ Declaration

Despite Raila Odinga, the head of the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition party, declaring Monday to be a holiday, Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has urged Kenyans to carry on as usual.

DP Gachagua warned the business community and investors that security services are on high alert to oppose any acts of lawlessness committed by the opposition faction’s protestors on the aforementioned day.

Speaking at the Pan-African (Re)Insurance Journalism Awards on Friday in Nanyuki, Gachagua described Azimio’s protests and widespread action as a passing cloud and emphasized that the government is incredibly stable and fully in charge.

He criticized as unpatriotic any leader who incites Kenyans to fear an economy that is attempting to stabilize itself. He added that President William Ruto’s administration is dedicated to improving the lives of residents by luring investors.

This comes after Mr. Odinga and leaders allied to Azimio declared massive protests in Nairobi on Monday to voice their disapproval at, among other things, the high cost of living.
