Rigathi Gachagua reacts to President Uhuru Kenyatta's speech in Kirinyaga.

Talking to his Facebook account, the legislator said the curfew which was put in place as one of the measures to curb the spread of Covid 19 was unnecessary and was just an avenue for police officers to make money from Kenyans.

" I shall continue exercising my representation role in talking behalf of the people.... the curfew was unnecessary and was an avenue for the police to make money from struggling Kenyans", the legislature said.

He further thanked the head of state for listening to the will of the people and focus on reviving the economy and completing the ongoing projects instead of spending his time planning his own succession.

On Wednesday, during the 58th Mashujaa day celebration at the Wanguru stadium in Kirinyaga county ,he lifted the nationwide dusk-to-dawn curfew effective immediately.
