Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua’s wife Dorcas Gachagua has sensationally revealed that she almost ended her own life.
Appearing on Woman Without Limits Show, the second Lady said that she was contemplating suicide on the day she met her hubby Rigathi Gachagua in 1987.
Speaking during an interview with city preacher Kathy Kiuna, Gachagua’s wife said that her frustrations were due to a domestic accident involving her mother.
“I had contemplated taking away my life after two of their neighbors’ kids’ got burnt in my mum’s house after a gas exploded and I blamed myself for why I bought my mum a gas cooker. I just felt I could end my life,” she said.
She said after being heartbroken about what had happened, her friends asked her to accompany them to meet the late President Daniel Moi at Karbarnet Gardens.
The woman of God immediately who was then a student at Kenyatta University quickly agreed to accompany her friends hoping to cause a dramatic scene so that she can be shot dead.
During those days, Gachagua who was then serving as District Commissioners was the one compiling the list of students to meet the then Head of State.
Dorcas, said when the President touched down, she ran towards him but unfortunately, she was not shot but was instead taken to State House on the following day to explain why she run towards the President.
“The following day, the president wanted to know what made me run into him and when I was taken to State House to meet him,” she revealed.
She said while at the State House, Dorcas met with the father of her two sons and that was how her life changed.
“I told him my problem and that’s how he gave me the source of life. He told me ‘you have a great future and never ever imagine yourself doing something like that’ and for two weeks he walked me through lessons of life. He was like a father to me. When he spoke, he gave me back my life and dignity,” she explained.
