Nyeri - A Nyeri politician, Geoffrey Rigathi Gachagua on Thursday asked suspended Infrastructure and Transport Cabinet Secretary, Micheal Kamau to carry his on cross.
Rigathi said since Kamau is facing trial for abuse of office charges, he should vindicate himself in court and clear his name.
He lashed out at Central Kenya politicians who have been claiming that Kamau is a victim of political power plays between Nyeri and Kiambu politicians.
Recently, former Nyeri politician Wanyaga Gathaka claimed that successive governments have been sacrificing Nyeri leaders.
He cited Waruru Kanja, Mwai Kibaki, Chris Murungaru and now Micheal Kamau, noting that there were cartels who believe a myth created during Jomo Kenyatta’s era that the Presidency should never be allowed to cross River Chania to the Northern part of Kikuyu Land.

Rigathi said the politicians want to create division in Mount Kenya region.
“Some sentiments are misguided and do not belong to the current generation. Kamau’s problems are personal and he should defend himself in court. Am wishing him well that he may come out clean,” said Rigathi.
Rigathi instead urged politicians from the region to support President Kenyatta’s war on corruption.
“The President’s purge on corruption should be supported by all. When the President suspends someone because of corruption allegations, he does not need to seek anybody’s opinion even when hiring. President has constitutional mandate to hire and fire,” he stated.
