"I Like People Like Gachagua" Manyora Now Says, Advises The Deputy President on What to Avoid

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has become a sensation across the webs two weeks in to office as President William Ruto's assistant, with a section of Kenyans lauding his 'honesty,' eloquence and courage.

In his recent TV interviews and public addresses, Gachagua has confessed that he does not speak lies, saying that his critics will get used it him.

In a video on his You Tube Channel on Monday, University of Nairobi lecturer and Political Expert Herman Manyora, lauded Gachagua for being himself despite holding the second most powerful position on the land.

Manyora however said that the deputy president should avoid making roadside declarations that might paint the Kenya Kwanza Alliance government in a bad way or make insensitive remarks that might cause tension in the country.

"I like people who speak their minds. I like Gachagua because of that, you could make a few mistakes in the process, look crude, village or uncultured but that does not matter."

"What he should do is avoid making some remarks like saying that 'the country has no money or no foreign exchange,' the implications of that statement are huge, otherwise I like his style," said Manyora.
