DP Gachagua hails his late brother Jack for paying his school fees

Rigathi Gachagua, the deputy president, has disclosed that his late brother Jack Reriani covered all of his tuition from Form One through A level.

The DP said during Reriani’s memorial service on Tuesday in Mathira that his parents had given him to the late brother, who had taken good care of him.

“We all held him in the highest esteem as a family. I’m grateful to God I had an opportunity to tell him thank you for seeing me through school, he came to Nairobi after the inauguration.”

Gachagua claimed that only two of the nine siblings failed to graduate because of their parents’ stress on the value of education.

Over the course of five years, the DP has lost three brothers.

Nderitu Gachagua, a former governor of Nyeri, died in an accident in February 2017; James Reriani Gachagua died on May 8; and Jack Gachagua passed away on September 25 of this year.

According to the DP, people should have numerous offspring who will eventually assist them in the home.

“In my case, when our two children are gone, and I am just with Pastor Dorcas, you leave a glass on the table and after two months you’ll still find it there, we find ourselves in a situation that is not nice,” he said.

Gachagua took the opportunity to reaffirm his loyalty to President William Ruto who also attended the burial.
