Gachagua unveils plans to offer President William Ruto a King’s welcome in the Mt Kenya region following August polls.
Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua on Sunday, January 8, revealed plans by leaders from the Mt Kenya region to welcome President William Ruto like a king.
Gachagua announced that they will start the tour from Githurai and travel through Ruiru, River Chania, Kenol, Maragua, and Murang’a. This seemed to be a predetermined course of action.
The welcoming party will next go via Sagana, Kutus, Kerugoya, Kangumo, and Chaka before coming to an end at the Sagana State Lodge, according to the Deputy President.
“We are planning to welcome our leader for his homecoming because we have a tradition here in the central region on how we receive our kings,” he revealed to the congregation at Nanyuki Stadium in Laikipia county.
On our tour, we will make a stopover at river Chania to give thanks to God, this tour would be planned meticulously,” he continued.
Gachagua claimed that the homecoming celebration will come to a close at the Sagana State Lodge, where they would discuss issues that pertain to people in central Kenya.
“It is at Sagana that we will host a leaders’ meeting where we will discuss issues of milk, coffee, tea, potatoes, water, and road infrastructure,” he noted.
Gachagua also thanked Ruto for nominating him as his deputy.
We agreed that I should remain here on the mountain and defend what we have in our hands.
“I also requested you to seek support from other regions as we already had the central and rift valley regions in our hands,” he added.
Gachagua echoed the efforts of Ruto in working for Kenyans by revealing that they work from early morning to the wee hours of the night.
“The president and I have been working tirelessly from 6 am in the morning all the way to midnight. We have no time to waste, what the president has planned for Kenya is commendable,” he declared.
