Thursday, 24 February 2022 – Vocal blogger, Wahome Thuku, alleges that Mathira MP and Ruto’s ally, Rigathi Gachagua, had hired goons to disrupt President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Sagana meeting.
He narrates how the organizers of the meeting beat them at their own game.
Read his Facebook post.
I sat throughout the Sagana meeting, at the very back. Far from the VIP tent and behind all seated attendees. With Isaac Muragu, Lempaa Soyinka, and a whole lot of other people. Let me say, the number of people who came to shake my hand were well over 60.
I picked that side of the venue to observe the huge crowd. You don’t observe the mass well when you are seated on the red seats and red carpet.
Part of the crowd had been paid by Rigathi Gachagua to heckle speakers. They had thought it was a political rally like those sunroof ones.
Organisers beat them to the game.
First, they were all allowed in and for hours before Uhuru arrived, they were entertained to the best Kikuyu secular and gospel songs.
Then it happened that only four people spoke. Mutahi Kagwe, Andrew Wakahiu, Uhuru Kenyatta and the pastor who prayed.
Uhuru and Wakahiu were cheered throughout. The mob that was meant to heckle kept quiet or just slept on the lawns. Others left. The plan flopped.
I was very keen to see how they would execute their instructions. I wanted to see how Mt Kenya was going to heckle Uhuru in State lodge. Wapi.
Most left convinced that Rigathi was the biggest scam. And they left 1k or 2k richer. Those who arrived very early received the 5k fare.
