During a visit to Tigania East, Meru County, Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua conveyed his condolences to the family of Tigania East MP Hon. Mpuru Aburi, who recently lost his brother Simon Kaberia. However, this somber occasion became a platform for Gachagua to deliver a resounding message of unity and purpose to the people of Mount Kenya.

Gachagua passionately emphasized his unwavering commitment to uniting the Mount Kenya region, transcending the geographical divide between the East and West. He firmly asserted that division had no place in his leadership, highlighting that Mount Kenya is one entity, cherished by all its residents.

The Deputy President’s vision revolves around bringing together the diverse stakeholders of the region, including leaders, businesses, elders, youth, professionals, and traditional institutions like Njuri Ncheke and Kĩama kĩa Ma. Their shared objective is to secure a brighter and more prosperous future by uniting behind President William Ruto.

Gachagua’s forward-looking approach isn’t just about acquiring political power; it’s about increasing the region’s representation in the national government. He acknowledged that the current 47% representation was insufficient and expressed determination to significantly enhance it by 2027.

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua’s message embodies visionary leadership, underlining his dedication to fostering unity, harnessing the region’s collective strength, and ensuring that Mount Kenya’s voice is influential in national affairs. His words serve as a rallying call for Mount Kenya’s residents and leaders to unite under a common purpose: securing a brighter future for the region.
