Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua offered two jobs to Kenyans who sought his help to secure employment on Saturday, December 17.
Gachagua spoke at Ndaragua, Nyandarua County, at the homecoming thanksgiving for East African Community (EAC) and ASAL Cabinet Secretary Rebecca Miano.
“There was a man who has asked for a job, where is he?” Gachagua questioned.
“Come here, it is good for a person to speak out,” he added.

He was astonished when two men walked to the front while one was holding documents in an envelope.
Regardless, the DP asked for their professions and areas of expertise, to assess the industry where they are best suited.
“I have been a teacher, an assistant chief, and vice chairman of Nyandarua County Council,” one of them stated.
“I am a degree and master’s holder, of project planning and management. I have also been in the education sector,” the other told the DP.
Gachagua informed the Education Cabinet Secretary, Ezekiel Machogu, to offer the two jobs in the ministry since they all had backgrounds in education.
“It is no problem that they are two, we will sort them out,” Machogu stated.
It was, however, not revealed the jobs the two will be assigned to the Ministry of Education.
Also, Gachagua volunteered to help renovate a local church by tiling the floor. He announced that his wife, Dorcas Rigathi, will be tasked with the project.
“We will plan with the church minister, when my wife comes here she will come with the tiles so we can beautify the house of God,” he stated.
