According to Ichungwa, he never does anything on his own but always consults because it is the right thing to do as a leader. He further stated that he is a sober leader who is ready to listen to everyone.
In his first Days in the office, there were reports that a number of lawmakers had claimed that the majority leader in the Parliament was not leading them as required as he was Arrogant, they also claimed that the Kikuyu lawmaker was untouchable.
On the challenges he faces in his position, Ichungwa revealed that it is always not easy to satisfy everyone,for instance, during the selection of committee members, the majority leader revealed that he recieved requests from 155 members of Parliament who wanted to be members of the Transport and Infrastructure Committee but only 15 members were needed, however, he noted that he has since learnt that patience with the members is always the key.
The Kikuyu lawmaker further revealed that his position has come responsibilities as it requires commitment. He revealed that the meetings are so many as they are the only ways to succeed.
The United Democratic Alliance party member of Parliament was named the majority leader after National Assembly Speaker Moses Wetangula ruled that the Kenya Kwanza Alliance had the majority in the Parliament. This was after a turf battle with Raila's Azimio La Umoja-One Kenya coalition party.
