Rigathi Gachagua speaks on DCI raiding his home over Ksh 5 billion

Mathira Member of Parliament Rigathi Gachagua has broken the silence regarding the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) raiding his home in Mathira and office in Nairobi on Saturday the 11th of July 2020 and recovering KSH 5 billion.

Rumors circulating on social media had it that the DCI and the EACC had raided Rigathi’s home and office. However, the vocal politician rubbished all these allegations.

According to the MP, he is ready to collaborate with relevant officials to clear his name.

“I do not know why the media relies on rumors. I slept at my house and came from there in the morning. My wife is there, and we had breakfast in the morning,” Rigathi said.

Further adding,

“Some fellows on social media are just pushing narratives that are nonsensical and meant to derail us in development.”

I am a focused leader.

Rigathi also explained that he is focusing on delivering on his work. He further invited the relevant authorities to investigate him.

“I am focused on what I was elected to do… I am not going to be distracted from my job. If you want to come and visit my home, you are welcome. There is plenty of food,” Rigathi stated.

The MP also refuted claims that he is worth ksh 5 billion. According to him, he is still aiming to cross the 1 billion mark.

Rigathi currently has frozen bank accounts for three months active from June after the Assets Recovery Agency (ARA) accused him of money laundering.

According to ARA, Rigathi amassed his wealth after government corporations and other companies paying him ksh 5.7 b. This made the courts freeze his bank accounts containing ksh 200 million for three months. Additionally, ARA claims that companies affiliated with Rigathi received this money, placing him at the center of a graft case.
