Friday May 29, 2020 – Mathira MP, Rigathi Gachagua’s bank accounts have been frozen for one week following an ongoing criminal investigation by the Assets and Recovery Agency (ARA).
According to ARA, Gachagua has been engaging in acts of money laundering and siphoning of Nyeri county funds.
ARA lawyer, Stephen Githinji, alleged that Gachagua was colluding with Nyeri County Government officials and public officers at the Irrigation docket to embezzle funds through his companies.
Gachagua has dismissed these claims and said that he is being targeted by President Uhuru Kenyatta’s men over his support for Deputy President William Ruto‘s presidential bid in 2022.
