Pastor Dorcas says DP Rigathi Gachagua is a good leader pledging to support him in prayers.
Pastor Dorcas Rigathi now describes her husband, Rigathi Gachagua, as a good leader who has the best interests of the nation at heart.
During the retirement service for Rev. Peter Mwikumi on Sunday, October 8, at PCEA Kabiruini, Pastor Dorcas stated that she will always be praying for the Deputy President.
She stated that despite widespread skepticism, Mr. Gachagua eventually attained the position of deputy President through the grace of God.
“DP Gachagua is a good leader, and he is going to lead because we are on our knees. They said he would not get there; he is there by the grace and power of God, he will remain there and we are going to pray for him. That is a message coming from his wife,” she stated.
Nyeri Governor Mutahi Kahiga said the region is solidly behind the DP, a sentiment that was echoed by Senator Wahome Wamatinga and Mathira MP Eric Wamumbi.
“As a people, we are behind Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, and there is no two ways about that,” Governor Kahiga said.
This comes at a time when the Deputy President has been on the spot over shareholder remarks.
The remarks have not been sitting well with some quarters even in Kenya Kwanza who translated them as divisive and provocative.
However, DP Gachagua insists that there is no problem in the government led by President William Ruto.
On Sunday, Gachagua dismissed speculations of a fallout with his boss.
“Our government led by William Ruto is steady and very stable, there is no problem and there will be none.
“The President and I are not foolish, we are great friends and even if you hear us talking differently, it is still the same thing,” Gachagua remarked.
