Rigathi Gachagua, the deputy president, has addressed the recent development of people in charge of government agencies publicly correcting him.
The officials were uneasy when Gachagua said he would not hesitate to tell the people the truth on Sunday, October 9, during a thanksgiving ceremony in Uasin Gishu County.
He said that as long as the criticism is supported by evidence to refute his statements, he is open to correction.
The DP did not retract his remarks about the National Police Service and Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) officers and how they ought to handle situations involving elected officials.
The DP said this immediately after Senator Samson Cherargei of Nandi reiterated his appeal for state businesses to stop openly criticizing the second in command since doing so amounts to mockery.
This follows a disagreement between Gachagua and Governor Patrick Njoroge of the Central Bank of Kenya (CBK) on purported efforts by the previous administration to manage the nation’s foreign exchange reserves.
