Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has asked Azimio leader Raila Odinga to treat former President Uhuru Kenyatta with respect.
Speaking Sunday during a church service in Mpeketoni, Lamu County, the deputy president accused Raila of “downgrading” the former president by engaging him in public rallies.
“We forgive him for many things, but not for misleading Uhuru Kenyatta,” he said.
Gachagua cited an incident where Uhuru accompanied Raila in a public rally in Nyanza, after the burial of former Education CS George Magoha.
“Please respect our former President. Even if he (Uhuru) was misled and the economy was ruined, he is our respected leader. We want his respect to be upheld, he should not be taken to rallies. It ruins our respect as Kenyans,” Gachagua said.
