Africa-Press – Kenya. Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has affirmed that his relationship with President William Ruto is strong and they are collaborating effectively.

Gachagua emphasized that the government remains robust and is making significant strides in fulfilling its promises to Kenyans.

Speaking on Sunday during a Church Service in Kesses, Gachagua said that the President has given him a lot of roles to oversee.

“Tupendane tuungane tuishi kwa amani, sisi sote ni wa Kenya na tukifanya namna hio tutaishi vizuri. Hio ndio Rais ametuongoza. Mimi na Rais tunafanya kazi nzuri, tunapendana tunapanga kazi yetu. Amenipatia kazi mingi hata ingine inanishinda, ameniwezesha kuendelea na kazi yangu kwa hivyo serikali yetu iko imara tunaendelea na kazi,” Gachagua said.

(Let us love each other, unite and live in peace, we are all Kenyans and if we are like that, we shall live happily. That is what our President has taught us. President Ruto and I are doing a great job, we love each other and we are planing our work accordingly. He has given me a lot of work to deliver and some even become overwhelming, but he has enabled me to work effectively. The government is solid and we are progressing well.)

There were speculations that Gachagua and Ruto were not on good terms. He was also among leaders who saw Ruto off on his US tour.

State House spokesperson Hussein Mohammed also dismissed the reports saying the two leaders have no issue.

Hussein cleared the air when he was responding to questions during a media briefing on Ruto’s trip to the US.

“To the best of my knowledge, there is no issue between the President and his Deputy,” Hussein said.

“The Deputy President’s office is an office with all capabilities and competencies. If you want to ask any question or find out anything about the Deputy President, you can get it there.”

On May 21, Gachagua revealed that he had taken seven days at the heart of Mt Kenya forest for prayers, fasting and meditation.

“I had taken seven days away for prayers, fasting, meditation, and no phones and nobody could disturb me. I had to meditate for the state of the nation and welfare of this region,” Gachagua said.
