Tuesday, November 21, 2023 – Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has dropped a bombshell on how former President Uhuru Kenyatta looted the taxpayer’s coffers dry before he retired in September last year.
Speaking in Mombasa County on Tuesday during the ICPAK seminar, Gachagua claimed that $2 billion (KSh 305.2 billion) was withdrawn from the CBK and deposited in a private bank during Uhuru’s tenure.
