Kenyan MP Gachagua Throws Musalia Under the Bus As He Reveals Ruto's Running Mate

Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua could have thrown ANC Party Leader Musalia Mudavadi under the bus when he revealed that Kenya Kwanza has already settled on Deputy President William Ruto as its presidential candidate.

Speaking on Citizen TV Morning Break show on Monday morning, Gachagua said Ruto's candidature is already confirmed and the two leaders are all aware of the plans.

He went ahead to reveal that the running mate position had been set aside for the mountain region and that Wetangula and Musalia are very much aware of this since they were well informed before the pact.

According to Gachagua, the three leaders had already reached a consensus and that the two will have various slots set aside for them and their people in the next government.

"We already have a consensus, Ruto will be our presidential candidate and the running mate will come from the mountain. As for Musalia's position in Kenya Kwanza, that is subject to discussion, when they came for discussion, we were very straightforward for Wetangula and Musalia, they were told we already have their own discussions, they came with full knowledge. They will not even go for running mate position, that I can confirm to you" stated Gachagua.

This comes at a time speculations surrounding Ruto's running mate position had landed Musalia at the middle of the parable.

It is now evident that either Gachagua, Ndindi Nyoro, Alice Wahome or any other UDA allied leader from the mountain could land the running mate position.
