Suna East Member of Parliament Junet Mohammed has reacted to Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua’s remarks that the government is like a company where only stakeholders’ benefit.
Junet wondered how logic will work when it comes to matters of tax collection.

DP Gachagua while speaking in Kericho on Saturday, February 18 noted that not all Kenyans are bound to benefit from the Kenya Kwanza regime since not all voted for its leaders.
“Hii serikali ni kampuni na ni ya shares. Kuna wenye kampuni, wale wako na shares mingi wale wako na chache na wale hawana,” Gachagua said.
Which loosely translates to;This government is a company. There are those who own it, those with many shares, those with fewer shares and those without.

Moreover, as the second in command helped distribute subsidized fertilizer to farmers in Kericho, he stated that they were getting the fertilizer because they invested in the ‘company’ by way of voting for him and President William Ruto.
According to the deputy president, there was nothing wrong with having those who ‘invested’ first benefiting first from the government.
“Hata hao watavuna lakini wangoje. Wale walipande wavune kwanza, wakishavuna ile itabaki kidogo wale hawakupanda waingie watafute huko ile itapatikana wachukue,” the DP said.
Furthermore, Gachagua said that is how the national cake will be shared so that people will learn the value of their votes in the next elections.
