Uhuru kicked me out of his office like a dog - Jubilee MP reveals

Uhuru's rare moment of anger

Rigathi Gachagua, who served as President Kenyatta's P.A for seven years, revealed that the head of state was extremely impatient with anyone who would propose improper use of public resources.

Gachagua, who is currently Mathira MP on a Jubilee ticket, narrated an incident during the 2002 election where he had asked his boss to intervene so that one of Uhuru's campaigners would get payment for some services rendered to the government.

He recalled that upon suggesting the idea, the then Local Government Minister strongly opposed the idea before kicking him out of his office "like an offensive dog".

"When he was a minister at Jogoo house, there was one campaigner who kept asking for money but he (the campaigner) told me to ask Uhuru to make some calls so he could be paid for a job he had done for the government".

"He told me that once he was paid, he would be able to campaign without coming to Uhuru for money so I thought that was a good idea. When I proposed it to my boss, he chased me out of his office like an offensive dog," Gachagua narrated.

The Mathira MP added that the campaigner was later charged in court over corruption-related charges at which point Uhuru called him to remind him the danger of dealing with corrupt people.
