Deputy President Rigathi Gahagua said that subsidizing the cost of fuel and maize flour was not the best thing to do.

Gachagua said that the action taken by the preceding Jubilee government was a deception and that it had no bearing.

"Subsidizing UNGA was a fabrication. It can't continue for very long. We were wasting Sh8 billion in one month. We can't go on like that. And thanks to interventions, you've seen how the cost of Unga has begun to decline, gas has dropped from Sh1,600 to Sh1,000, and the price of edible oils is also decreasing, he said.

"We want to run a transparent administration that will be honest with Kenyans, and if there are problems, we will let Kenyans know about them."

He said that the Kenya Kwanza Alliance government can be looked into, and he urged the Azimio team to do a good job as the opposition.

Gachagua says that they are ready for constructive criticism, which is different from President Uhuru Kenyatta's administration, which had a "praise and worship" squad that gave them the praise that wasn't deserved.

He was addressing the Kenya Private Sector Alliance's inauguration of the Kenya Youth Employment & Entrepreneurship Accelerator Program (KEPSA).

"You are aware that Praise and Worship was a chorus under the previous administration. We dissolved the government choir because we wanted the truth. He said that the only time we want to see praise and worship teams are on Sundays in our churches.

The Deputy President emphasized that because of the ongoing consequences of the COVID-19 epidemic and the Russia-Ukraine conflict, administering the government would not be easy.


"We are welcoming people that are modest and not haughty. You are free to tell us anything you wish. Please don't cheat us if we are performing poorly," Gachagua said.

"Tell us off where we're doing poorly, and support us when we're doing well."

Gachagua told the group led by Raila Odinga, Azimio La Umoja One Kenya, to speak out against President Ruto's government.

"I urge the opposition, the adversaries that we vanquished, to assume their place. He remarked, "We would accept it favourably if you are honest with us about our areas of laziness and where we need to improve if you are honest with us about our areas of laziness and where we need to improve."
