The Senator cited a statement made on Wednesday by Kenya Airways (KQ), in which the airline denied being "state captured" as the Deputy President claimed.
Cherargei concurred with DP Gachagua's assertion that the institution has a leadership issue.
In a tweet, he stated that "Dp Gachagua was right state capture is real" and that "Kenya kwanza manifesto of revamping KQ highlighted leadership problems & high operational costs the govt should do institutional audit of KQ without Chair Michael Joseph & his team."
The Nandi lawmaker also brought up a situation in which the Central Bank of Kenya (CBK) refuted DP Gachagua's assertion that there weren't enough foreign exchange reserves in the nation.
"State agencies must cease publicly reprimanding DP! It is impolite and disrespectful to the presidency. From the Director of Criminal Investigation at the Central Bank of Kenya to KQ now," Cherargei continued.
Following a Sunday interview on Citizen TV, the institutions in both cases issued statements correcting the Deputy President.
The majority shareholder of KQ, according to the airline's chairman Michael Joseph, is the Kenyan government. KQ is a publicly traded company.
In addition, KQ Board and Management have been working with the lessors to lower the overall costs of aircraft lease rentals, so Joseph dismissed claims that they were paying above market rate fees for services provided to the airline.
According to CBK DP Gachagua, the country doesn't have enough foreign exchange reserves to buy oil.
"We have run out of foreign currency; the Central Bank did not have enough yesterday to purchase oil from other countries, "said he.
Later, the bank would amend the statement, adding; "Other than for the National Government (such as government-owned imports or debt service payments) or CBK's operations, CBK does not provide foreign exchange for transactions. In order to obtain the necessary foreign currency, oil importers therefore turn to commercial banks rather than CBK."
