Mathira Member of Parliament and DP William Ruto number one confidant Rigathi Gachagua has been apprehended.
On Friday, 23rd of July 2021, hundreds of police officers from the directorate of Criminal investigation made their way into Gachagua’s home with over 50 cars.
Confirming the incident, Rigathi posted on his social media account saying it’s something that had already been predicted.
“As predicted two dozens of DCI officers raided my Nyeri home and arrested me to face trumped up charges of money laundering. I am being driven to Nairobi at reckless speed to spend the weekend in the cells,” his post read in part.
The Mathira law maker exposed that, his arrested is closely connected to the last by-election that saw the ruling party (Jubilee) get nailed by Ruto’s UDA party in Kiambaa.
“I appreciate, it is their bitterness with the loss of the Kiambaa by-election. Though I played a minimal role, I had no vote. Will you arrest all voters of Kiambaa? Kiambaa was just a tip of the iceberg, the handshake state faces a humiliating defeat in 2022,” he added.
Few hours ago, hustler nation intelligent bureau chair Dennis Itumbi exposed that, police would start arresting DP Ruto allies that took part in Kiambaa by-election.
“Tonight, Deep State and Jubilee Re-Loaded has started arresting everyone who financed, campaigned or helped campaign for UDA in Kiambaa…1.
“By Noon tomorrow they will have arrested a friend who I will name after he is arraigned in court. They will arrest him in Nairobi and transport him to Western. I have already informed him accordingly. He played a very key logistical role in Kiambaa. He ran for a parliamentary seat in Nairobi in 2017. He was a strong second,” Itumbi’s post read in part.
According to an initial statement issued by DCI Director George Kinoti, the Mathira legislator allegedly used 42 companies to disburse a cumulative total of Ksh12 billion. More
