4 mins read

In the realm of politics, promises are often made, but their fulfillment can be a rare sight. However, in the case of Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua and President William Ruto, the commitment to economic transformation and inclusivity, particularly for the marginalized, has not only been declared but also demonstrated. The last five days have witnessed a remarkable showcase of this dedication during President Ruto’s Development Tour of the Mt. Kenya region.

The tour was not merely a routine event; it was a manifestation of a pledge upheld. Deputy President Gachagua had vowed that State Lodge Sagana’s gates would open for a “Mchele ya Nyama” feast once they assumed power. True to their word, President Ruto hosted the residents of the Mt. Kenya region, offering more than just a meal – he presented a symbol of a promise fulfilled.

Amidst this feast, a series of significant development projects were launched, spanning water, roads, bus parks, hospitals, and dairy factories. These initiatives underscored the administration’s dedication to empowering hustlers and uplifting the lives of ordinary citizens.

What captured the nation’s attention was the extraordinary turnout that greeted President Ruto in each stop along the tour. From Githurai to Kenol, Kagio to Karatina, Nyeri Town to Thika Town, the enthusiastic crowds echoed their support. Many attribute this remarkable mobilization to the charismatic grassroots prowess of Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua.

Rigathi Gachagua’s journey from a provincial administrator to his role as Deputy President has endowed him with exceptional mobilization skills, reminiscent of military precision. His paramilitary training at the Administration Police Institute and an Advanced Public Administration Course at the Kenya School of Government have undoubtedly contributed to this prowess. This unique ability to galvanize people and rally them behind a cause has played a pivotal role in consolidating the once-divided Mt. Kenya region.

As a visionary leader, Gachagua has extended his influence beyond mere mobilization. He has spearheaded vital reforms in key sectors such as coffee, tea, and dairy. His administration skills were evident in the meticulous registration of farmers through local chiefs, ensuring they received subsidized fertilizers – a move that directly impacted their livelihoods.

Gachagua’s role in consolidating the Mt. Kenya region, a political stronghold, was crucial in President Ruto’s successful bid for the presidency. The region’s overwhelming support played a pivotal role in propelling Ruto to the highest office in the land. This achievement serves as a testament to Gachagua’s influence and his ability to unite diverse segments of society under a common cause.

In every stop of the tour, Gachagua’s charisma was palpable, captivating the eager audience that affectionately refers to him as “Riggy G.” His magnetic presence and unwavering dedication to the people have forged an unbreakable connection between the leadership and the electorate.

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua is emerging as a vital cog in President Ruto’s administration, a linchpin of transformation and empowerment. His multifaceted contributions, from grassroots mobilization to championing pivotal reforms, reflect his commitment to the principle of “Kenya Kwanza” – putting Kenya and its people first. As his influence continues to grow, Gachagua’s role in shaping a more prosperous and inclusive Kenya is undeniably cemented.
