DP Rigathi Gachagua noted that intermarrying and having many children are among the solutions against tribalism in Kenya.
Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua cracked up residents of Kwanza, Trans Nzoia county after he asked them to consider reproducing themselves more.
The second in command was on Sunday, February 11, part of the congregation at St Andrew Kaggwa Catholic.
Seemingly in Jest, the deputy president after taking over the podium argued that intermarrying and over-par reproduction among couples would help cure the tribalism problem Kenya has been grappling with for years.
“You should continue co-existing. Let’s intermarry and give birth to many children and continue staying together. Let us continue mingling. God will provide what we will feed our children with,” he stated amid cheers.
In light of the council, Gachagua assured the Trans Nzoia residents that the national government would provide services as well as enhance security for the growing populace.
The deputy president took the opportunity to rally the residents behind President William Ruto and his administration.
Having made it his clarion call, Gachagua stated that the government would accommodate all who would wish to ditch the opposition to support the regime.
Meanwhile, he stressed the government’s commitment to providing affordable housing to the citizenry as well as the initiative by the government to incentivize farmers by subsidizing farm inputs such as fertilisers.
He restated that despite the choking debts in their trillions, the government was still committed to development at the grassroots.
Accompanying the deputy president to the church service were ranking national and local leaders, among them National Assembly Speaker Moses Wetangula, Health Cabinet Secretary Susan Nakhumicha, Governor George Natembeya and host MP Ferdinand Wanyonyi.
