Mathira constituency member of parliament and a close ally of Deputy President Dr. William Ruto, Hon. Rigathi Gachagua has caused a stir online after sending a strong message to leaders calling for the postponement of the 2022 general elections in a recent interview.
Speaking during an interview with Royal Media Servicesowned Citizen Television on Tueday night, Gathagua said that Kenyans were tired and fed up with the government of the day claiming the plan to postpone the 2022 poll was a scheme by the proponents of this BBI because they're stuck and that the political alliance the top leaders supporting the bill aimed to create was around the BBI, a deal which may not bear fruits as chances of the Bill being successful are few.
Gachagua went further to say that the proponents of the BBI were looking for an exit strategy to extend the term of the President and parliament so as to have time to craft another strategy through BBI, warning that the move to extend the terms of the President and parliament could lead to anarchy as Kenyans are fed up.
