Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, on Saturday, April 1, revealed that President William Ruto sent emissaries to his predecessor Uhuru Kenyatta following his family's intervention.
Speaking at an interdenominational service in Malava, Kakamega County, the second in command disclosed government plans to iron out contentious issues with Uhuru and the entire Kenyatta family.
According to the message sent to Kenyatta's family, the government expressed willingness to discuss working modalities and revenue remittance.
Additionally, Gachagua detailed that the government was ready to discuss property the family reportedly stashed abroad.
"I have sent you a message through your emissary, please, if you want to talk to us because you don't want to pay taxes, if you want to talk to us so that you do not return the property you put abroad," Gachagua stated.
"You can call us for an honest conversation, and then we can discuss whether you pay tax or you don't and how to do it. we can agree on that," Gachagua stated.
He, however, reprimanded the former Head of State, directing him to stop using Azimio leader Raila Amollo Odinga to stage anti-government protests.
"You don't have to cause violence through Raila Odinga," Gachagua appealed to Uhuru.
On Friday, March 31, Defence Cabinet Secretary Aden Duale revealed that Kenyatta's family had sent emissaries to President Ruto for a truce.
Duale further narrated that Kenyatta's family wanted immunity against attacks.
"They have sent emissaries that the former President and his family should be left alone. Nobody can guarantee them that. That guarantee given to them should also be given to ordinary Kenyans," Duale stated during an interview with Spice FM.
However, former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga, refuted claims that Uhuru was funding the protests, adding that the former head of state was held up with international duties.
He also condemned the attack on his Spectre gas firm and Uhuru's Northlands City.
