Gachagua's name has been in the news recently after it was reported that the DCI's office was compiling evidence against him after he was accused of various corrupt dealings totaling Sh 12 billion.
Gachagua maintained his innocence in an interview with Inooro TV on Monday morning, claiming that he is being persecuted because of his close friendship with Deputy President William Ruto, who appears to have fallen out with President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Gachagua also warned DCI boss George Kinoti to stop slandering his name by publishing corruption allegations against him in newspapers, instead requesting that the DCI boss come and arrest him if he (Kinoti) has any evidence against him.
"In the last two years, I've been accused of corruption scandals in the press."
"I want to tell Kinoti that if you have any evidence that I have committed a crime, arrest me and bring me to court," the lawmaker said.
