- Gaucho says that he had to beg in order to be assisted when he was arrested at City Hall and arraigned in a Kiambu Court
- He further stated that should the bi-partisan talks fail, he will not go to the streets to demonstrate
Bunge La Mwananchi President and Azimio diehard Calvin Okoth popularly known as Gaucho has expressed displeasure with Azimio after the coalition officials reportedly neglected him following his arrest.
Gaucho says that he had to beg in order to be assisted when he was arrested at City Hall and arraigned in a Kiambu Court
“Kama mimi ninajulikana ndio nabembeleza hivi kutolewa, na wale hawajulikani? Kama hamtachange, nitawatakia mazuri mbele.”
Gaucho accused Azimio Leaders of selfishness and looking after the people that have been in the forefront for their struggles.
“So many youths we had started this struggle with at Bunge La Mwananchi are struggling. Some are locked up in Industrial area and no one is bothering. Only Babu Owino is making frantic call for them,” he said.
I will not go to the streets
He further stated that should the bi-partisan talks fail, he will not go to the streets to demonstrate.
“I pray so hard that these these bipartisan talks bear fruits because if they don’t, I will not go to the streets,” he stated.
The outspoken Azimio supporters further accused some Azimio leaders of blocking his access to retired President Uhuru Kenyatta despite his request to meet Gaucho.
“The other day, president Uhuru Kenyatta requested to meet me, unfortunately I have been blocked by some people in Azimio from meeting him. But if it were someone else, they would have already rushed there.”
Gaucho was on Tuesday released on a cash bail of Ksh. 5,000 after he was charged with causing disturbance.
“Earlier today, Calvin Okoth Otieno alias “Gaucho” was arraigned before Kiambu law courts on charges of creating disturbance contrary to section 95 (1)(b) of the penal code. The suspect pleaded not guilty and was released on a Sh20,000 bond or cash bail of Sh5,000,” the DCI said.
