Kenya’s newly elected deputy president, Rigathi Gachagua, is yet to move into the executive deputy president’s residence in Karen.

This is nearly a week after the DP took an oath of office which saw the former occupant of the residence, President William Ruto move to the state house on the same day.

The DP says he still digesting a lot of things in his current life which includes being Kenya’s deputy president.

“The things that are going on around me are very momentous. I’m yet to acclimatize, digest, and accept the new situation and the status and all,” he said.

Gachagua divulged that he is still trying to tune into his new stature because this will compel him to depart from the only home he has known for 24 years.

Speaking to a local TV station, Gachagua stated that he will move in due course but it will take him quite some time.

For him, leaving his home is such an uphill task. This is because it is where he raised his children and housed his parents for a long time.

“I have such an emotional attachment to this home, my children grew up here, and my parents lived with me here for many years,” Gachagua divulged, he added.

His official DP dwelling is ready however, Gachagua believes that as long as work is getting along fine, there is no haste in moving.

Kenya’s deputy president’s official residence which is worth Sh. 383 million sits on a 10-acre piece of land in the Karen, Nairobi County. 

It was officially launched by the late former president Mwai Kibaki in November 2012.
