Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua on Saturday morning hiked Mount Kenya to thank God for the rains that continue to pound various parts of the country.
In a post on his social media accounts, Gachagua, a self-proclaimed son of Mau Mau, said he also prayed for a bountiful harvest following a prolonged drought.
“Early this morning I went to the mountain to thank God for the rains. I took time to thank the almighty for his Grace and mercy for giving us rain after five consecutive failed seasons and the worst drought in 40 years,” he wrote.
“I prayed to God to give us more rain and bountiful harvest.”
This is not the first time the deputy president is trekking to the mountain to seek divine intervention since he assumed office last September.
In January, Gachagua went to the mountain to pray for the country and its leadership as well as for rains.
“I came to this mountain because it is at high altitude, and we consider that it is not very far away from heaven where our God stays. I came to pray for wisdom of the president and the transformation of our economy,” he said at the time.
He noted that “there is a certain calmness about nature that reminds us of who we are as human beings.”
“To come this close to the wonders of the world and to marvel at the works of God is a truly refreshing experience. Mt. Kenya is mythical. It is mysterious,” he wrote.
“I ask many people to come here and pray because the mountain is a symbol of resilience, struggle, and victory.”
He needs to pray for the eradication of jiggers & alcoholism.
Jiggers is a very big problem among Kikuyus.
Kikuyus have been praying facing Mount Kenya but their problems seem to increasing
Kikuyus problems include:
6. More poverty
8. Hate & Jealousy. Etc
Guesty: I have a feeling you're a frustrated wannabe Kikuyu otherwise you would not spew such venom against a community on any platform. If that is not the case, your wife left you for a KIKUYU
Are there other people by the name kikuyu's? Because the Kikuyu's you are talking about aren't the same as Gikuyu's. Keep your Kikuyu's; we will keep our Gikuyu's.
If you must talk about another community, other than your own know their name first.
These are mere dramatics. You can go there to meditate and this would be understandable. Everything else is ujinga.
Mix politics and religion: recipe for going back to the “Stone Age” generations.
Rigathi lacks “ Critical Thinking Skills.” He is therefore unfit to be in a position of leadership in our country,
Today he is praying facing mt.Kenya tomorrow he will accompany his wife to Church. A lost dude.
The problem with blind faith is that,it makes people believe in the illogical.FOr example why does Gachagua believe that God lives somewhere above mount Kenya...
Is this the god of the kikuyus...that Gachagua prays to? I wonder what his wife, the pastor thinks about he husband taking off and heading for the mountain to prayer,instead of kneeling down next to her,and reading the bible together before praying.I wonder if man and wife believe in different gods.
@Maxiley it seems ur those who worship Jesus the white European saviour.Kyks still believes their God lives on higher top near kirinyaga.Where does yr God leaves🤣🤣In Jerusalem or Bethlehem
Why didn't He trek Before the Rains? Because he Wants to Reap where he Did NOT Sow.
