In a surprising turn of events, Deputy President Gachagua has openly criticized Azimio leader Raila Odinga’s recent move to collect signatures in an attempt to remove President William Ruto from office.
Gachagua argues that the entire endeavor lacks constitutional backing and is a clear violation of democratic principles.
The political landscape in the country has been increasingly tense as various factions jostle for power and influence.

Raila Odinga’s Azimio party has been at the forefront of this power struggle, presenting itself as a viable alternative to the ruling administration.
However, Gachagua has wasted no time in pointing out what he perceives as the party’s faults.
Gachagua contends that any attempt to remove a democratically elected president must be carried out within the boundaries of the constitution.
He argues that the proposed signature collection exercise is nothing more than a political maneuver lacking any legal or constitutional legitimacy.
According to him, it sets a dangerous precedent that undermines the democratic process and the will of the people.

Furthermore, Gachagua emphasizes the importance of respecting the mandate given to President Ruto by the citizens during the last election.
He believes that it is only through free and fair elections that leaders can be chosen or removed from office, and any other method is tantamount to subverting the will of the people.
While Raila Odinga and his supporters may argue that their actions are necessary to hold the president accountable, Gachagua’s critique highlights the need for adherence to constitutional processes and the rule of law.
As the political landscape continues to evolve, it remains to be seen how this clash of ideologies will shape the future of the nation and its leadership.
