DP Gachagua becoming too toxic, Azimio lawmaker claims

DP Gachagua is becoming too toxic and trying too hard to impress Kenyans according to Azimio lawmaker, Senator Maanzo.

Senator Dan Maanzo, an Azimio ally, has questioned recent public antics by Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua.

The legislator claims that the second-in-command is making an undue effort to win over Kenyans.

DP Gachagua’s recent actions and remarks have elicited varied reactions on social media.

The Senator suggested that Gachagua should be a reflection of his boss, a deputy president who is responsible.

“Rigathi Gachagua is already trying to impress Kenyans that he can be president one day but he is doing it the wrong way. He is becoming toxic,” Maanzo said on Tuesday.

“ As a country, we expect a responsible deputy president who will be speaking the mind of his boss,” Maanzo added.

During the 94th National Music Festival awards gala closing ceremony in Kisumu, in a move that raised eyebrows, Gachagua dangerously hung on the door of his vehicle while waving to the charged residents.

In another episode, Gachagua blamed some influential political leaders who had taken control of banks forcing oil importers to be surcharged while buying oil due to high foreign exchange rates.

However, the Central Bank of Kenya (CBK) on Monday denounced comments made by Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua insinuating that state capture had crippled their operations, especially in controlling Foreign Exchange Reserves in the country.

DP Rigathi Gachagua also faced backlash after hinting at re-introducing the outlawed Shamba System where people are allowed to grow crops in the forest.
