Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua’s recent absence from public events has been noticeable and is raising questions. Several factors might contribute to his reduced visibility:

  1. Political and Budget Issues: Gachagua has been embroiled in controversies regarding the substantial budget allocations for his office, particularly the Sh2.6 billion earmarked for office refurbishments and the purchase of medals and vehicles. These issues have likely required his attention and may have contributed to his lower public profile.
  2. Interpersonal Conflicts: There have been reports of tensions between Gachagua and Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja. Despite both parties publicly downplaying any discord, their differing visions for Nairobi and political maneuvers within the UDA party could be causing behind-the-scenes friction.
  3. Security Concerns: Enhancing security at his offices and residences has also been a priority, which might have led to a more cautious approach in his public engagements.

These factors combined suggest that Gachagua’s absence from the public eye may be a strategic response to both internal political dynamics and pressing administrative matters.
