Senator Cherargei warns state agencies against correcting DP Gachagua in public
Nandi Senator Samson Kiprotich Cherargei has warned state agencies against correcting Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua in public.
He termed it as "bad manners and insubordination towards the presidency".
This comes after Kenya Airways (KQ) on Wednesday dismissed claims by DP Gachagua that it is under ‘state capture'.
"Kenya kwanza manifesto of revamping KQ highlighted leadership problems and high operational costs the govt should do institutional audit of KQ without Chair Michael Joseph and his team, Dp Gachagua was right state capture is real," says the Senator.
Senator Cherargei also revisited Central Bank of Kenya's statement which contradicted Gachagua's allegation that the country lacks enough foreign exchange reserves.
"State agencies stop correcting Dp in public! From Central Bank of Kenya, Director of Criminal Investigation to now KQ."
KQ and CBK statements
KQ chairman Michael Joseph said that it is a publicly listed company with the government as the biggest shareholder.
He dismissed claims that they pay above market rate for services procured by the airline. He added that KQ Board and Management is in the process of engaging with lessors to reduce the overall costs of aircraft lease rentals.
DP Gachagua also alleged in an interview with Citizen TV that CBK was short of forex to buy oil from foreign countries.
CBK later dismissed this claims in a statement saying, "CBK does not supply foreign exchange for transactions other than for the National Government (i.e., government's own imports or debt service payments) or CBK's operations. Oil importers, therefore, obtain their requisite foreign exchange from the commercial banks and not CBK."
