The second in command who was speaking in Nyeri on Wednesday, August 9, during President William Ruto’s last day visit in Mt Kenya region said he had been burdened by duties.
Gachagua said he needed time to visit his home and interact with his people.
“Ruto has given me a lot of work which sometimes is overwhelming. He asks me to deal with coffee and tea reforms, to deal with illicit alcohol, and sometimes to see how I can deal with Raila. I have enough workload. In fact, Ruto should reduce my workload so that I can have time to visit my home and my people,” Gachagua said.
Earlier, the former Mathira Member of Parliament had insisted that he will always be a villager.
The second in command speaking after taking another of his morning walks in his village said he was elated to have had some of his town people join him for the walk.
Gachagua said during the walk, he had time to bond with them and that he received a lot of good feedback from them on key issues affecting the region and the country at large.
“I kicked off the day with an early morning walk, an exercise that I particularly love when I am in the village because it is a great moment to engage and catch up with fellow villagers and even share lots of laughter,
“It was also reinvigorating to do the kilometers with some of the villagers who joined me in the walk,” the DP stated.
