Kenya Kwanza Deputy Presidential Debate Rigathi Gachagua has boasted of how he allegedly defeated Azimio la Umoja Deputy Presidential Candidate Martha Karua during the last Deputy Presidential Debate held on Tuesday last week.
Speaking on Saturday during Kenya Kwanza campaigns in Kajiado county, the self-confident Rigathi warned that his boss William Ruto is going to deconstruct Raila Odinga on Tuesday, just the same way he did to Karua.
According to Rigathi, he proved many people who had predicted his doom at the debate wrong, saying Ruto is also going to show Odinga dust during the main Presidential debate slated for Tuesday, July 26.
He, however, sensationally claimed that the former prime minister had written to the organizers asking to be allowed to seat down during the debate since he cannot stand for the whole 90 minutes.
"Si mliona nilikua pale debate na Martha Karua? ilikua sawa? Tulimnyorosha hatukumyorosha? This coming Tuesday (July 26), the real debate is coming. Hustler William Ruto will face off against Raila Odinga. Are you waiting for the debate? Raila Odinga has already started panicking. He will not manage to stand for a whole 90 minutes and has written to the organizers asking to be allowed to sit down during the debate,: Rigathi claimed.
Gachagua warned that nobody should be allowed to seat down since the debate will be used to measure whether the candidates are mentally and physically fit.
"We want to tell Raila that no debate will be done when you are seated down, you should stand up for 90 minutes. This debate will measure the fitness of one's brain and health. We ask our fifth President William Ruto not to allow anybody to seat down during the debate, we want to know who is mentally and physically fit to run the country when given the mandate," added Gachagua.
He, however, said Raila could be allowed to seat down if he will insist but Ruto should be left standing.
Among the leaders who accompanied Ruto and Gachagua to Kajiado include; Musalia Mudavadi, Moses Wetang’ula, Justin Muturi, Moses Kuria, Kithure Kindiki, Katoo Ole Metito, Mary Seneta, Ndindi Nyoro, Kipchumba Murkomen, among other leaders.
