The Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK) CEO Ezekiel Mutua has defended Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua after a backfired interview on Sunday night.

The interview which was held by TV Personality Sophia Wanuna has been trending after the Journalist was accused of allegedly being unprofessional.

Through his Twitter account, Mutua now says Wanuna should have given the DP more time to explain himself and elaborate his points.

"Eish. . .Sophia Wanuna, you are not interviewing a political candidate. Rigathi Gachagua is the Deputy President of the Republic of Kenya. Give him time to explain his points. You can conduct a professional interview without bellicose jingoism!"

Kenyans were divided with some asking Mutua to stick to his lane.

Check out some of the comments below;

@martmartinels: If they fail to ask those that I call "hard quizzes" still you will say unprofessional... Mmmmmh.

@Patrickkimani_: She is a Journalist and fair to you that you are a deputy Jesus. Stick to your work.

@omwansaE: Arrange your interviews with DP and send here for marking

@Jamajanke1: Mutua is licking boots here.... Have you guys watched Hardtalk, Amanpour & the likes.

@DrPNyongesa: Wewe gwachana na Sophie, find other means of looking for a job from UDA!

@BenjahPatrobas1: Sir , with due respect, if your are looking for a job in the current administration stop being dishonest with yourself.nkt.

@FredRico4: There has been a misunderstanding among local journalists that for an interview to be impactful it has to be combative. Far from true. Two way communication encourages the best of both the guest and host .

@OgayaOgaya: You can do better to audition for a job with the new government without trying to bring down a fellow journalist. @SophiaWanuna is doing just fine.

@NoOnness: My guy! I thought you understood journalism thus heading a media docket? swali tu.

During the interview, Gachagua also explained why he has not yet moved into his official residence in Karen.

He continues to stay in his Karen home despite President William Ruto moving to the state house the same day he took the oath of office.

"The things that are going on around me are very momentous. I'm yet to acclimatize, digest and accept the new situation and the status and all. It is very overwhelming. I will need to take some time but in due course I will move into the official residence,"  he said.
