There was drama in Mathira when angry residents blocked the motorcade of their area MP Rigathi Gachagua, to heckle and chase him for constantly disrespecting President Uhuru Kenyatta. Gachagua, who is a staunch DP Ruto supporter and one of the Tanga Tanga point men in Mt Kenya region has been going around the country with DP Ruto, hurling insults and expletives at President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga.
However, his constituents have had enough of his absenteeism and accused him of spending too much time in Tanga Tanga rallies instead of working for his people.
The MP, who was a former Moi era District Commissioner has been trying to position himself as one of the leading crusaders for a DP Ruto presidency in 2022. Over the weekend, he was among MPs from the Mt Kenya region who accompanied the DP to a church service at various churches in Nairobi, where they attacked the BBI, terming it a political tool against DP Ruto.
”This BBI thing is a hoax. We know what their intention is and we shall not allow a few people to be given positions when Kenyans are suffering. Kenyans are already united, they do not need to be told what to do by the BBI,” MP Gachagua said. Other MPs who accompanied the DP were Ndindi Nyoro, Alice Wahome among others.
