Kenya Kwanza's presidential running mate Rigathi Gachagua is yet again at the centre of another storm after he used an unprintable word during a church service.

During the church service in Meru county on Sunday, Gachagua used the better part of his speech to disparage Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua for attacking DP William Ruto.

Karua on Saturday took a swipe at the DP after reports emerged that he is planning to probe Uhuru once he wins the presidency.

"Any leader who threatens an individual be it the president or any other person is not worth being elected as a leader," Karua said.

It is when responding to Karua's attack that  Gachugua uttered the unprintable word.

"When Mwai Kibaki got in trouble with Raila Odinga, Martha Karua walked out on Mwai Kibaki. She showed him the M... finger na akatoka kwa serikali," he said.

Gachagua was addressing congregants at St Thomas the Apostle- Patron Saint of Athi Catholic Parish in Igembe South.

The use of the word by Gachagua has elicited sharp reactions on social media

Here are reactions from a section of Kenyans:
