Mathira Member of Parliament Hon Rigathi Gachagua has opened up on claims that he is planning to overthrow Deputy President William Ruto out of power once they win in the August polls, defending himself on the allegation of planning to block DP Ruto's winning a second term.
According to the Mathira Member of Parliament, he has said he has received the reports that a section of leaders are not happy with him being chosen as DP Ruto's running mate on claims that he is planning to cause trouble.
Rubbishing the allegations, MP Gachagua has said that he was brought up in a God-fearing family where he was taught to respect his seniors.
"People said that if Ruto picks me as his deputy I will cause trouble but that is not true. If you are brought up in a united family like I was, you cannot change when you are old. I am a man who has been in uniform (referring to his service as a DO) and the language I know is to say Yes Sir to my boss,” Mr. Gachagua said.
There have been allegations that MP Gachagua is an impatient and over-ambitious leader who might start early campaigns for his Presidency should the Kenya Kwanza win.
