DP Rigathi urges Kenyans to plant more trees during his 18km morning walk
Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has urged Kenyans to plant more trees to achieve President William Ruto’s goal of 15 billion trees by 2032. Gachagua emphasized that planting trees, especially now that the long rains are pounding most parts of the country after five failed seasons, is one way to mitigate the effects of climate change.
On Saturday, Gachagua and Dorcas Rigathi, took an early morning 18km walk through Hombe and Kabaru forests, which are part of the larger Mt. Kenya Forest. During his walk, Gachagua appreciated the locals for their conservation efforts, which have kept the Mt. Kenya Forest water tower intact.
“I want to thank the people of this area for preserving this forest. This indigenous forest is intact. I want to urge all other Kenyans to heed the call of President William Ruto to plant and grow 15 billion trees by the year 2032. It’s the only way to mitigate the effects of climate change,” said the second in command.
Rigathi urged Kenyans to be part of the government’s conservation efforts to ensure food security and protect the environment. He also reiterated his commitment to assist President Ruto in achieving full economic liberation of the country.
During the walk, Gachagua and his spouse interacted freely with locals as they spent the Easter holiday in their rural home at Iruri Village in Mathira Constituency, Nyeri County. The locals in Kieni and Iruri requested for more subsidized fertilizer as they appreciated the government’s provision of the same.
