In a wide-ranging interview with several journalists at his Karen home, Gachagua complained about the media, singling out The Standard and Citizen TV whom he acxcused of being openly biased.

“The media should also be held to account as well. The Standard ranm a story saying that Gachagua and his wife demanded Shs 1.5 Billion which is a lie” he said in answer to a question on what he meant when he recently said that “wataona huko mbele.”

Gachagua also complained that during the presidential campaigns, the media had ganged up against him and the then Deputy President William Ruto.

“I accept and welcome criticism from media and social media… I will never change who I am… I know who matters to me and my leadership is the Kenyan.”

He added the Ruto administration is also not bitter with anyone.

“We are not bitter with anybody,” Gachagua said.

Gachagua says he will not change how he speaks.

During a joint interview with television stations in the country, Rigathi was faced with a question regarding how he addresses the public from one of the journalists.

“To some they say you appear to be always in a combative mode. Some say at any opportunity with the microphone you lecture Kenyans. Is the truthful man a bitter man?”

The DP said he will not change how he speaks.

“Kenyans just like I said have a right to say what they want. This is democracy. Kenyans have every right to describe my character. I am a person and you should have known me by now.

I speak from my heart; I say what is in my heart. I am a truthful man, I am an honest man. Kenyans are not used to honesty and many people have a problem with that,” said Mr Gachagua.
