Speaking in Nandi County during the Tinderet Barngetuny Mountain Run, Gachagua faulted the Judiciary for constantly issuing rulings that have affected government operations. Gachagua gave the examples of the rulings that slammed the brakes on the State’s Affordable Housing and Social Health Fund plans.

The country’s second-in-command argued that most judicial officers had mortgages, housing allowances, and health insurance which he used as a basis to question why the courts have been issuing rulings which he argued have been frustrating hustlers.

“Against the rules of evidence where who he alleges must prove, we made an application to cross examine the investigator and she refused because she knew there was no case,” he stated.

“Those Kenyans who have petitions let them file.I ask willing Kenyans to join me on Thursday so that they process this petitions,” Gachagua urged.

On July 2022 months before the polls, Justice Maina ordered Gachagua, to forfeit Sh202 million for being proceeds of corruption.
