Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua and his wife pastor Dorcas Rigathi walked eight kilometres in the wee hours of Friday, April 7, to visit his 93-year-old aunt living in Iganjo village.
In a statement, the DP reminisced about using the route to get yellow passion fruits in the '70s.
"My auntie prayed for me, blessed me, and treated me to a heavy breakfast of boiled maize and porridge," he added.
The DP praised his village mates for being hardworking, aggressive, and focused. He was seen interacting with some of them including a milkman on a boda boda.
Gachagua also fondly remembered his late mother who he claimed resembled his aunt and both looks and mannerism.
"Parents are a blessing and we must always take care of them, especially in old age," the DP added.
The couple donned tracksuits and hiking shoes with Gachagua wearing a grey hoodie decorated with a cartoon of himself as well as his nickname 'Riggy G'.
While at the aunt's house, the couple noted that the aunt received them well and other relatives who shared a meal in the living room.
In October 2022, the couple also visited the aunt, who is the last surviving, and she prayed for the couple before sharing a meal with other relatives.
"I thank God that my Auntie is strong and healthy. Looking at her I see my late mother and I thank God for her life," the DP stated.
Gachagua is the eighth-born in a family of nine children born to the late Nahashon Gachagua and Martha Kirigo.
