On Monday, October 17, Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua located Ivy Chelimo, the lady responsible for giving him the nickname “Riggy G.”
Gachagua said that she will be working in his Harambee House Annex office during his speech on World Food Day in Rombo, Kajiado South Sub County.
He continued by saying the lady was a representative of the country’s young people and their boundless potential.
Ivy is the one who came up with the term “Riggy G,” and he said to enthusiastic cheers from the audience, “I’ve hunted her down and offered her job at my Harambee Annex Office.”
In turn, Chelimo praised the deputy for providing the opportunity and for working to make sure that young people are well-served by the Kenya Kwanza government.
She said, “Thank you, Deputy President, he gave me a job this morning and he’s really enthusiastic about the youngsters getting roles in this administration.”
The Deputy President had made a remark earlier in the day, asking how long would we keep telling the youths that they are the leaders of the future.
He went on to say that he was overjoyed by the moniker, finding it somewhat more melodic riffs than his formal name.
