Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has voiced his concerns over the use of condescending language by government officials, breaking ranks with fellow leaders. Gachagua’s unexpected criticism has stirred public interest and raised questions about the tone and attitude of Kenya’s government representatives.
According to sources, the Deputy President, known for his outspoken nature, expressed his alarm over the trend of condescending language used by some government officials. Trade Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria and Presidential Economic Adviser David Ndii, both prominent figures in the government, were singled out for their recent remarks.
Gachagua’s criticism came as a surprise to many, considering his own history of using abrasive and divisive language in the past. His role as Deputy President involves promoting national unity, making his critique of government language all the more noteworthy.
Moses Kuria and David Ndii found themselves at the center of public outrage due to their recent comments. Kuria, in particular, used an arrogant tone when addressing questions about the economy. According to reports, he warned Kenyans that things could get even worse, sparking anger among citizens.
David Ndii, the President’s economic advisor, faced backlash for downplaying political promises and suggesting a lack of a clear plan to improve Kenya’s economic situation. In response to questions from the public, he expressed uncertainty about the future state of the economy under the Kenya Kwanzaa Administration.
Both Kuria and Ndii’s comments triggered strong reactions from the public, who were offended by their tone and apparent lack of empathy. Kuria even dared Kenyans to throw stones at him, while Ndii emphasized his commitment to speaking truth to power.
