Deputy President Gachagua breaks silence over reports he is leaving UDA to form own political party

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has denied reports claiming he has formed a new political party.In his statement on Wednesday, Gachagua asserted that the report is false and malicious.

“This false, one-sided story is full of lies and malice,” the Deputy President stated.

Gachagua’s comments follow rumors suggesting he had established a new party. He argued that the post was created with ill intentions to attack his integrity.

“Associating the Honorable Deputy President with another political party can only be done with ill intent, with the sole purpose of undermining his role as the Deputy Leader of the United Democratic Alliance (UDA),” said Njeri Rugene, Head of the Deputy President’s Communications team, in a statement.

Rugene emphasized that the article violates journalistic principles of fairness, balance, and impartiality. She also demanded an apology from the newspaper that published the false information.

“In this matter, we seek the retraction of this defamatory article and an apology with equal prominence,” the statement read.
