"Riggy G Should be Respected as a National Leader, " Gachagua's Criticers Told by Cherargei

Nandi County Senator Samson Cherargei has slammed the Western Kenya Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance Members of Parliament for attacking the Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua.

Cherargei now says, the Azimio allies should focus more on castigating the Former Azimio La Umoja Presidential running mate Hon. Martha Karua, adding that, Gachagua is a national leader and should be respected.

The Lawmaker, noted that such attacks shows that the Legislators do not respect the second in command after they hinted at impeaching Gachagua over his tribal chauvinist anytime he is in public.

Cherargei feels it will be balanced if the Azimio wing direct their attacks and anger towards Karua, who has been silent ever since they lost the recent elections.

"Sad to note that some Luyha Azimio-OKA MPs have started attacking or reprimanding Deputy H.E Rigathi Gachagua they should stop ASAP instead they should focus on castigating their Azimio-OKA running mate Hon. Karua. Riggy G should be respected as a national leader," said the Lawmaker.

Gachagua, who has been on the receiving end of sharp criticism following his public utterances concerning the Kenya Kwanza government appointments of the Kikuyus only, went viral after he attacked the Nairobi County Governor Johnston Sakaja.

Gachagua, who has been termed tribal by a section of legislators, maintained that, the remaining appointments will only go to the Kikuyus, a public utterances that led to the MPs reminding him that he was not elected to represent the Kikuyus but the whole country.

In his feud with Sakaja, Gachagua told the public that, without him mobilising the Kikuyu votes, the Nairobi County Governor, Sakaja, could not have won the gubernatorial race, adding that he used cease his way of operating the City.
