Bomet Governor Hillary Barchok Hits Out at Oscar Sudi For Disrespecting Rigathi Gachagua

Bomet Governor Hillary Barchok has hit out at Kapsaret Member of Parliament (MP) Oscar Sudi.

Barchok accused Sudi of bringing embarrassment to the government and disrespecting Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua.

In a press conference on Monday, May 27 Barchok said Gachagua deserved respect from the Kalenjin pointing out that he supported President William Ruto.

The governor said it was disrespectful to address the DP during a public rally.

“We will not allow a few people to bring shame to our government, to our president and deputy president. I want to address the people of Rift Valley, the Mt Kenya region and DP Gachagua stood with us and we must respect him,”

“I saw someone exchanging words with Riggy G. He is our senior. If he has uttered anything offensive, there is a respectable way of addressing issues and not speaking at a public rally,” Barchok added.

Barchok’s sentiments come after Sudi and Gachagua engaged in heated public spats.

Sudi has accused Gachagua of engaging in divisive politics.

On the other hand, the DP has claimed Sudi was meddling with Mt Kenya politics.

Since joining politics, the outspoken Sudi has been making headlines over his rise to the top which has always been a subject of discussion.

Sudi has also been highly featured in local news publications over his political statements which often stir mixed reactions.

While most people continue to question his wealth acquisition and education qualifications among other personal stuff, the MP recently laid bare his journey from being a mere matatu conductor to dining with the President.
