Gachagua says Salaries to delay.The second in command, DP Gachagua explains salary delays for civil servants, this comes after uproar from the likes of Opiyo Wandayi who highlighted that only the security personnel have received their march salaries.
In his statement, the deputy president stated that the Treasury did not have enough money left to pay all civil servants after clearing the wage bill for March.
He stated,”What we collected the last two weeks was sufficient to pay the loans. What we are collecting this week will pay salaries and other requirements.”
The second in command once again pointed fingers towards Uhuru Kenyatta for leaving them in a financial turmoil. He stated that Kenya kwanza is not to blame because they are not the ones who borrowed the loans.
He stated,”We are not the ones who borrowed that money, but we have to pay because this money is owned by Kenya. William Ruto is the President, and he cannot run away from those debts.”
Gachagua further told off Azimio la umoja leader, Raila Odinga, for calling for mass action, knowing very well they left the country at an economic shutdown.
He posed,”Just how foolish does Odinga think Kenyans are? Where was he when the prices of these commodities were on the rise during Kenyatta’s time?”
Hon. Rigathi Gachagua was speaking in a church service at PCEA Ngorano Centre Church in Mathira Nyeri County, he pleaded with the spiritual leaders to pray for the country Kenya because it is struggling.
