Kenya Kwanza Presidential running mate Rigathi Gachagua on Tuesday said he will recover his frozen money once they win the presidency in the August piolls.

Gachagua said he will use the money to build a nice fancy house.

Speaking in Mathira during the political meeting, the MP said his new residence will have a nyama choma base for men, while the women who will visit his wife, will be given porridge.

"You know this government froze my account. When we take power, I will take my money back and I will come and build a home here in Kieni so that you can come to visit me. I will build a nice house and also a nice place where men can grill meat and also drink what we drink as we talk," Gachagua said. 

"For the women, we will have a nice place for them where they will be coming to visit his wife as they drink porridge while singing and dancing." 

In May, 2020, Gachagua's three personal accounts were frozen on suspicions of money laundering at Rafiki Microfinance Bank.

Gachugua was being investigated for claims of colluding with officials from Nyeri county and the state department of Irrigation through his companies and close associates to receive money suspected to be proceeds of crime.

Senior resident magistrate Muthoni Nzibe allowed the application by ARA and ordered the freezing of all accounts for several days which meant Gachagua was not able to do any transactions.
