Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has asserted that leaders should embrace forgiveness, emphasizing his resolve to absolve those who wronged him in the past.

During a candid address in Meru County, Gachagua recounted his transformation from a resentful individual to a healed soul, expressing, “I Rigathi Gachagua was badly wounded before the elections, I was humiliated and persecuted. I came into office a very bitter person.”

In a magnanimous gesture, the DP declared his forgiveness towards individuals who may have caused him harm, while also seeking pardon from those he may have injured, stating, “I do not know why anybody would have a problem if I forgive my brother, my sister.”

Moreover, Gachagua apologized to Mama Ngina Kenyatta, acknowledging past conflicts and exemplifying a dedication to unity and harmony. He urged for collective effort in nation-building, asserting, “Uhuru Kenyatta is our son, he should come so that we unite, is that okay? Do you have a problem with him? The election period is over.”

Encouraging a culture of forgiveness among leaders, Gachagua invoked biblical teachings and implored individuals to let go of grudges, fostering a spirit of reconciliation for the greater good. He reiterated the impermanence of politics, urging MPs and MCAs in Meru to follow suit and move forward in solidarity.
