Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua on Sunday donated Ksh4 million towards the construction of 2 sports facilities in Nyeri County.
Speaking during a service at PCEA Church Karatina, the DP stated that each project would be allocated Ksh2 million.
Gachagua pointed out that Nyeri residents deserved better facilities, especially after backing him and President William Ruto to the last man in the 2022 presidential elections.
The Deputy President has not shied away from reiterating the stance that regions that overwhelmingly backed Kenya Kwanza ticket will benefit more than any other bastion.

“I can never decline your requests, because you have never failed me. If I promise you that I will do something, be rest assured that I will do that because you are family,” he stated.
The Second in Command also announced plans to contribute more to the construction of better facilities at the church to help the locals.
While addressing the matters concerning the region, DP Gachagua emphasised that the government was working to ensure that farmers benefit from the coffee, tea, and milk reforms he has initiated.
Gachagua explained that reviving the 3 sectors would translate into more money in their pockets.
The Deputy President further urged Kenyans to be patient with the Kenya Kwanza government as President William Ruto and himself were working round the clock to resuscitate the economy and restore it to the level left by former President Mwai Kibaki.
He took the opportunity to accuse former President Uhuru Kenyatta and the Jubilee II administration of embezzling public funds and leaving empty coffers, which he for the umpteenth time, claimed they inherited.
According to Gachagua, it will take a few years for the economy to fully recover. He, however, assured that under the leadership of President William Ruto, Kenya was heading in the right direction adding that the prices of basic commodities were coming down.
“We took on from where Kibaki left off, fixing the economy bit by bit. The President and I do not sleep, we are tirelessly working for the nation. Let me tell you if we can’t handle this job no one else can,” he stated.
