Gachagua's Paybill Aside, Total Amount In Billions Nation Raised During Kenyans For Kenyans Project

Kenyans have expressed mixed reactions following latest move by Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua. This is after the former Mathira MP launched a Safaricom paybill and account number as he pleaded with Kenyans to donate cash to help fellow countrymen who are facing drought

Some Kenyans have invited this move terming it as an act of patriotism whereas other have faulted this move by Gachagua as they vowed not to contribute even a shilling. This is not the first time Kenyans have been asked to step up in favour of other since in 2014, Red Cross pulled such a move termed as Kenyans for Kenyans Initiative (K4K).

The motive was still fight for drought in an event in Safari Park where all television stations united. The target had been placed at 10Million USD which was raised in only three weeks and surpassed as Kenyans raised a total of $11M which equates to ksh 1.3Billion
