Rigathi Gachagua was accompanied to the hospital by several people. These included his wife Pastor Dorcas Rigathi and Member of parliament Meja Donk. They came out to support the elderly lady.
Mukami Kimathi is the wife of the famous freedom fighter Dedan Kimathi. Kimathi was among the leaders of the MauMau which fought for Kenya's independence more than sixty years ago.
The deputy president was shocked to learn of Mukami's ailment yesterday. He had accompanied president William Ruto on a tour of the Nyanza region. He immediately directed Meja Donk to fly back to Nairobi and visit the ailing freedom fighter.
Mukami Kimathi is unwell and undergoing treatment at the Nairobi hospital. The treatment is expensive and she has been unable to raise the fee. The deputy president promised to offset the outstanding bills.
