During the main event of the debate last night, Gachagua called Kenyatta the master planner of the Raila Odinga-Martha Karua “project” saying there is State capture by corruption cartels…organized criminal gangs who plunder our resources daily.

Gachagua showed what he termed as a gazette notice during the debate where, the Mathira MP sensationally threw the accusing finger at President Kenyatta of using his powers to exempt the “first family of paying Sh350 million in a merger of two banks.”

Gachagua said, “Through a gazette notice and by a single signature, two companies owned by the first family were exempted from paying Sh350 million. Money that can put up 35 level three hospitals in Kenya. That is chronic corruption.”

Gachagua continued “That’s conflict of interest and State capture. The real corruption that we need to deal with is State capture.”

His Azimio la Umoja counterpart, Martha Karua clapped back, accusing Gachagua of failing to understand the real meaning of State capture.

Karua said, “I want to help Mr Gachagua. State capture is the repurposing of the State to serve individuals rather than the public good. Corruption cartels in this country, whoever they are have strangled the country. Kenya can’t breathe. Our health services, the money is taken, the money for agriculture, for fertilizer subsidies, for building dams such as Kimwarer, Arror.”

The last line was a thinly-veiled attack on Rigathi Gachagua’s running mate, William Ruto who had been allegedly involved in the sensational Kimwarer and Arror dams scandal.
