Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has called upon the nation and the church to pray for him as he deciphers how he will fit into President William Ruto’s shoes as former DP.

Speaking during a thanksgiving service at State House on Sunday, DP Gachagua underscored that President Ruto set extremely high standards while acting as DP and matching up to the competency will not be a walk in the park.

“I want you to pray for me to see how I figure out to fill the shoes of this great man because they are very big. The standard he has set for Deputy President is very high. I’m just figuring how a little fellow, a son of Mau Mau can fit in those shoes and get somewhere,” said Gachagua.

The second-in-command similarly urged the church to pray for his boss, President Ruto, noting that he has an enormous task ahead of him to revert the country back to a stable economic state and resolve the drought crisis in the nation.

“You need to pray for Dr. Ruto. The country he has inherited is not a very sweet story, work has to be done and its only through God’s hand that will help him through. Drought is ravaging people the country, people have not food people have no food, hospital bills is an issue, schools is an issue and all this is in the hands of one man,” said Gachagua.

“As much as you have prayed for us you have also work to do, you must continue praying continuously and endlessly.”

DP Gachagua further, citing his controversial inauguration speech in which he went guns blazing at former President Uhuru Kenyatta’s leadership, reiterated that he “was brought up to always speak the truth” and Kenyans should get used to his transparent remarks.

“I know people had a problem that I said the truth in front of visitors but I think to many its bad upbringing. I was brought up by my parents and I was told to always speak the truth. I want to invite Kenyans wazoee ukweli.”
