Nyeri Governor Mutahi Kahiga has taken the fight to Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua with the blessings of Deputy President William, can now report.
There are reports Kahiga on Saturday, February 18 deposited Kshs 200 million to William Ruto via an aide for the governor to get direct United Democratic Alliance (UDA0 ticket for Nyeri county governor ticket.
Rigathi, who has been pushed off further as Tharaka Nithi senator Kindiki Kithure is being propped up in case ODM leader Raila Odinga alias Baba picks Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Peter Munya as his running mate.
Gachagua was shocked on learning that Ruto prefers Kindiki and in case his ICC case is reopened would prefer to have the senator as his deputy.
The Mathira MP was shocked to learn through allies of this move at Wilson Airport on Saturday morning.
What followed were attempts to get clarification of the matter from Ruto, resulting in a commotion of sorts for a few minutes as a deranged Rigathi expressed his concern and anger.
Gachagua is currently cornered and has been edged out of the Nyeri county politics using Kahiga who is working closely with Chinga MCA Kiruga Thuku under the pleasure and with the blessings of the Deputy President.
Insiders revealed that the Deputy President trusts Kahiga as a trustworthy man and with whom he, Ruto, was able to make a crucial act on his race for State House.
Kahiga took over from the late Nyeri governor Wahome Gakuru, Uhuru's heir apparent in Mt Kenya at the time of his death.
Ruto has proposed Wahome Wamatinga vies for Senator this time, a proposal Rigathi has refused to commit to until now. 
Also, Laikipia woman representative Cate Waruguru has told a friend she had not left the hustler nation and had been in Kieleweke as a spy to leak information to Dennis Itumbi and the Deputy president.
Waruguru, who will be facing former Agriculuture Cabinet Secretary Mwangi Kiunjuri in Laikipia East parliamentary race has expressed disappointment that the Deputy President has refused to readmit her back into the Tangatanga inner circle despite her having been in Kieleweke on instructions from him.
