Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has lamented about being turned to a beggar in order to solve some of the challenges bedeviling Kenyans.
The second in command has said it is very embarrassing for him as he spends time with foreigners begging for food.
“I spend all my time begging for food. It is humiliating to me. I spend all my time with foreigners, including those who colonised us, begging for food. I have no choice because we can not let our people die,” he said.
“ The president gave me a responsibility to mobilize food so that our people do not die and that is what I’ll do,” he said

According to him, it would take God’s intervention to have the children salvaged from malnutrition and lactating mothers from breastfeeding challenges.
“We have had five failed seasons and our people are staring at hunger. More than 4.3 million Kenyans are staring at starvation, and more than 2,500 livestock are dead,” he said.
