Though not everyone agreed with his arguments, there was some kind of common agreement that political strategist Tony Gachoka was drunk, or at least high on something on Wednesday night during Jeff Koinange Live.
He is a favourite of the bench, and this time round he hit the Jubilee administration hard. He was just recently their biggest supporter and it’s not clear what they did to him.
Despite his points, it was his behavior and how he delivered them that left many Kenyans to think he was not sober. Even Mutahi Ngunyi insinuated the same.
Give Tony Gachoka a break. He is like any average Kenyan trying to hold an intelligent conversation at 10 pm. We would all sound like him!

At some point during the interview, he left to go pee… he did not wait for that commercial break and am not kidding. Am not an expert, but I guess alcohol is notorious for pressuring your bladders.
Anyway, don’t take my word, here are some reactions from Kenyans.
