Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has made Kenyans happy today by showing that he is over the negativity he had towards Nyanza region since the period of campaigns.
He has always spoken ill of Raila even after UDA won the election but today he decided to choose unity. He told Homabay residents in a speech that Baba belongs to all Kenyans and all Kenyans are led by President William Ruto.
Gachagua said that development will be done in all parts of the country without discrimination of political affiliations.
He promised that everything that they discussed about affordable housing, infrastructure, water among other projects will be fulfilled through the help of the county government.
He then said that he is so happy to have visited Homabay and even felt like he should spend the night.
He said, “Tushikamane tufanye kazi pamoja maana Kenya ni moja. Nimefurahi sana kuwa hapa Homabay, hata nilikuwa nafikiria tulale hapa.”

President William Ruto has started his two-day visit to the Nyanza region. His first stop was Homa Bay county where by he was flanked by his deputy Rigathi Gachagua and Information Communication Technology, ICT Cabinet Secretary Eliud Owalo.
This is the second time the top brass in the Kenya Kwanza government is visiting Nyanza since its inauguration.
Ruto and Gachagua had a talk with the residents who had lined up to receive them at the county headquarters. Gachagua in his speech recognized former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s influence in the region and spoke highly of him to the elated crowd.
He revealed that the President has good plans for Raila and he will take care of him. Gachagua also promised the government will look after people living in Raila’s strongholds.
“You are truly Baba’s people. Baba is ours as well and that means you are also our people. Our government respects Baba. President William Ruto has made sure that he takes care of Baba because he is a Kenyan leader,” he said.
The DP went on to note that the Ruto administration has a soft spot for small businesses and would never frustrate the fishmongers and fishermen of the region.
He also promised to channel development projects that enhance small businesses in the region.
“Ruto’s government does not frustrate businesses. In fact, it shields small enterprises. Even fishermen can operate without any disturbance. If anyone acts as a hindrance to your livelihoods contact me because I am the person who protects small businesses,” Gachagua said.
