DP Rigathi Gachagua

On Sunday, December 4th, various leaders accompanied president William Ruto for an interdenominational prayer and thanksgiving service at Embu university. Among those present were; DP Rigathi Gachagua, Attorney General Justin Muturi, Governor Cecily Mbarire, Governor Kawira Mwangaza, Governor Muthomi Njuki, Kimani Ichung'wa among others.

The leaders thanked Embu residents for turning out in large numbers to vote for the Kenya Kwanza government. The leaders promised to work for the people of Kenya.

While making his speech, the deputy president warned the president to avoid doing a handshake with the former prime minister, Raila Odinga. Gachagua said that the handshake is the worst thing that has ever happened in the history of Kenya.

The second in command alluded that Raila Odinga is calling for demonstrations wishing that a handshake will happen again just like it happened during the reign of former president Uhuru Kenyatta.

"Mr president, we from the Mt Kenya region voted for you overwhelmingly. We are a key player in your government. We are asking you to not fall in the handshake trap. Don't go that route. The handshake is the worst thing that ever happened in this country. Please, take it here from the slopes of the mountain," alluded Gachagua. (Watch video from 2 min).

Gachagua further thanked the president for awarding Mt Kenya region with many appointments. He added that the people of the region will remain firm in the Kenya Kwanza government.
