Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua has lost Ksh202 million to the State after the High Court ruled that the money held in four accounts at Rafiki Microfinance is proceeds of corruption.
Justice Esther Maina ruled that the MP, who is also William Ruto’s running mate admitted that he received the funds form government agencies but there was no evidence that he supplied any services or goods to the government.
The funds, at Rafiki Microfiinance Bank, are held in three accounts with one holding Ksh165 million, a second account holds Ksh35 million and the other holding Ksh773,228.
All three are registered in the MP’s names. A fourth account, holding Ksh1,138,142, is registered in the name of Jenne Enterprises.
