Mr. Rigathi has assured his government that they will do everything possible to ensure illicit wealth owned by former president allies is brought to the table to support the government. The deputy, while speaking on Inooro Television, made a correction to those who are shaming the current
government that they are thieves, he denied the fact and stated that the accusers are the thieves instead; he went ahead and mentioned that the former government had a corrupt cartel that comprised of about 10 people who stole billions from the economy in manipulated deals.
Mr. Gachagua further stated that the former government was very vocal in telling Kenyans not to vote for thieves, yet they were the real thieves.
"They had started subdividing public land among themselves in Galana Kulalu [in the Coast region] and in Kibiku in Ngong," he said on Inooro TV, adding that the thieves had even captured Kenya Airways, which charges the highest air travel rates in the world and whose aeroplanes operate at full capacity but would be said to be making losses.
He added that the cartels owned banks and controlled interest rates, and every public policy was designed to earn them handsome profits.
Mr. Gachagua said Mr. President is not keen on naming and shaming individuals in the cartel, "but, certainly, we will cancel their ill-gotten title deeds."
