Its Payback Time for Supporting Azimio, DP Gachagua to Mathira Chiefs

2 mins read

Two Mathira Chiefs are now living in fear of uncertainty of their jobs following threatening night phone calls from Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua who is keen on punishing the two administrators for purportedly supporting the Azimio Coalition.

In an interview on Thursday, the two chiefs,  George Mukabi, Dadson Ithiru, and assistant chief Burton Chiuma revealed DP Gachagua called them between 8.00 pm and 9.30 pm telling them to start looking for something else to do as their sackings were nigh.

”It was around 9.20 pm when I received a call and being a resident of Mathira and having served the DP when he was the area MP, I still retain his contact. At first, I panicked and was a bit apprehensive because it is a very rare call and I didn’t know what he was up to,”one of the administrators said.

He continued, “When I finally picked the call, it was a familiar voice of his Excellency the deputy president. He started by informing me that he had information that I was among those who were supporting Azimio during the elections. The call was short, and he ended by asking me how many years are left before I retire…”

“He informed me that in the meantime, I should be looking for something else to do because I will be going home. I could not start arguing with such a senior person. However, I tried to explain myself, but he could hear none of it” he said.

In the run-up to last year’s General Election, Mr. Gachagua, the then Mathira MP was constantly engaged in public spats with the then CS for interior Dr. Fred Matiang’i, and his Principal Secretary Dr. Karanja Kibicho, accusing them of using the provincial administration to marshall support for Raila Odinga in Mt Kenya.
