Updates: Rigathi Gachagua Speaks for the First Time Since Being Declared Deputy President-Elect

Deputy president elect Rigathi Gachagua has spoken for the first time since the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission declared his boss William Ruto the president elect.

In his message, he has congratulated His Excellency the deputy president William Ruto quoting the book of Deuteronomy 20:4 which talks of the LORD God being the one who goes with everyone to fight for them against their enemies to give them victory.

"Deuteronomy 20:4"For the LORD your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.”Congratulations to Kenya Kwanza led by our Captain H.E William Ruto, President- Elect.God Bless Kenya, May we dwell in peace and Unity. https://t.co/JIAVVbqeji

This comes at a time when it has emerged that they did not take part in an event that had been organised for them at the Catholic University of East Africa over security issues.

In a chaotic announcement that could foreshadow a court challenge, Kenya’s electoral commission chairman on Monday declared Deputy President William Ruto the winner of the country's close presidential race over five-time contender Raila Odinga.

The outcome was a triumph for a candidate who shook up the East African nation's politics by appealing to struggling Kenyans' economic concerns instead of their ethnic allegiances.
