Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei has joined hands with leaders from Mt Kenya Region to defend the Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua from criticism by a section of Luhya leaders from the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance camp.
Gachagua has been on the receiving end from the leaders owing to his clash with Nairobi City governor Johnson Sakaja following his plan to kick out matatus from CBD.
Taking to his Twitter account, Cherargei said that the DP popularly nicknamed 'Riggy G' must be respected, and that the Azimio leaders should direct their attacks to their own running mate, Martha Karua.
"Sad to note that some Luhya Azimio-OKA Mps have started attacking or reprimanding DP 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."
The Western and a section of Nyanza leaders have stood firm to defend Sakaja, saying that the DP must leave the governor alone for him to deliver on his own agenda to the city dwellers.
