Costly Blooper: UDA’s Rigathi Gachagua Campaigns For OKA on Live TV

Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua on Monday morning, February 28 sparked reactions after mistakenly confusing the One Kenya Alliance for the Kenya Kwanza Alliance. 

Kenya Kwanza Alliance is allied to Deputy President William Ruto while OKA is allied to ODM leader Raila Odinga’s Azimio La Umoja. 

The blooper which Gachagua is likely to regret happened when the DP Ruto ally was talking about the Budget Policy Statement during a live TV show when he accidentally campaigned for OKA instead of Kenya Kwanza. 

Gachagua said leaders allied to OKA had put a proposal in Parliament for the government to provide KSh 5 billion in the budget to subsidise fertiliser.  

He, however, realised his mistake and quickly corrected himself noting that it was Kenya Kwanza.  

“…lack of government intervention in terms of subsidiary. In Parliament during the Budget Police Statement, our team from the One Kenya Alliance…,” he said. 

This comes barely a month after a parliamentary aspirant mistakenly endorsed Azimio La Umoja during a Kenya Kwanza Rally in Busia. 

When Nambale parliamentary aspirant Bernard Nandieki took over the microphone, he took a minute to campaign for himself. 

However, in a bid to vouch for Kenya Kwanza, he mistakenly asked the constituents to vote for Azimio la Umoja.
