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

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has refuted claims that he has established a new political party.In a statement released on Wednesday, Gachagua described the reports as false and malicious.

“This baseless, one-sided story is riddled with lies and malice,” stated the Deputy President.

Gachagua’s response followed the circulation of reports alleging his formation of a new party.

He condemned the report as a deliberate attempt to tarnish his reputation and integrity.

“Linking the Honorable Deputy President to another political party is a clear act of ill intent, solely aimed at undermining his position as the Deputy Leader of the United Democratic Alliance (UDA),” said Njeri Rugene, Head of the Deputy President’s Communications.

Rugene emphasized that the article contravened the principles of good journalism, which require fairness, balance, and impartiality.

She also called for an apology from the newspaper that published the false information.

“We demand the retraction of this defamatory article and an apology with equal prominence,” the statement concluded.
