Rigathi Gachagua, the deputy president, has promised to honor Ivy Chelimo, the woman who gave him the cool moniker "Riggy G." Gachagua claimed in an interview with Citizen TV's Waihiga Mwaura that he had told his sons to find Chelimo so that they could have a nice meal with him and his family.
He said the nickname was pleasing to the ear and that it had made life simpler for those who would have trouble pronouncing his long name.
"We need to give him the name Riggy G. The young lady who determined that Rigathi Gachagua is a little bit difficult and not melodious," he said.
"I enthusiastically took up the name in order to inspire our young people. I've asked my sons to find that girl so she can join us for supper, he added.
He also made a suggestion that financial assistance would improve Chelimo's situation. "I will see what I can do for her so that I can see, from my salary, if I can boost her a little bit to be able to do something. I want to encourage that young girl," he said.
According to the deputy president, the Kenya Kwanza administration will keep recognizing potential as part of a comprehensive effort to increase the number of job prospects for young people without jobs. Gachagua, who has recently gained popularity among young people, claimed that he enthusiastically accepted the nickname. Ivy Chelimo is a content creator who just graduated from Catholic University Of East Africa.
