'I Speak For Mathira People, You Speak For Your Boss Raila,' Rigathi Tells Paul Mwangi On Live Tv

On Sunday evening viewers of vernercular television show Kiririmbi were treated to a heated debate between Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua and BBI lawyer Paul Mwangi.

These two leaders went on each other during the live show hosted by Francis Gachuri. Rigathi Gachagua and Paul Mwangi differed on a number of issues concerning the BBI, handshake and the 2022 succession plan.

However tables turned when Rigathi Gachagua told lawyer Paul Mwangi that when he speaks he speaks for his employer Raila Odinga while Rigathi Gachagua spoke for his electorates from Mathira.

'I speak for Mathira people on the high table with Ruto while you speak for Raila Odinga', Rigathi told Mwangi. Paul Mwangi however didn't take this lightly as he asked Gachagua to stop making it a personal thing.

Mwangi went ahead to tell Gachagua to only speak on himself when it comes to DP Ruto. He further went on to tell Gachuri and the viewers that it was wrong for Rigathi to say he was speaking for his people yet he was speaking for himself and what he would gain.

The matter didn't stop there as Rigathi Gachagua went on to say that whatever he was speaking with Ruto was on the behalf of his people. He reminded Paul Mwangi that he was an elected leader.
