Unlike on his first visit to the Nyanza region, where the leaders in the area were missing in action, leaders from the central region, including Kimani Ichungwah, Ndidi Nyoro, and John Njuguna, among others, were present.
These were among the many leaders who drummed up support for William Ruto in the region, making him ascend to the presidency.
During the burial ceremony, leaders were given a chance to talk, and many took the chance to send their condolences to Gachagua's family.
On the other hand, Gachagua praised his brother by reminiscing all the good deeds his brother, Jackson Reriani, has done for him and saying it is in the same spirit that he will serve Kenyans.
Afterward, Gachagua invited, President William Ruto to the podium to address the residents who were very eager to hear from him on this first visit to Central Kenya.
Ruto's speech went on smoothly as he passed his condolences until a woman started talking loudly, catching his attention.
William Ruto, who often referred to himself as the chief hustler during the electioneering period, calmly asked the lady to keep quiet by telling her that afterward, he would listen to her.
The lady never stopped shouting as she then demanded to see the first lady, and President Ruto went to assure the lady from the crowd that, in fact, Mama Rachael Ruto would meet her.
As the lady continued to vent loudly, the President was heard saying, "Pole sana. Tutakushughulikia," and that is when the estranged lady calmed down and William Ruto went ahead to address the residents."
