Dorcas Gachagua: I had contemplated suicide before meeting Rigathi

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua’s second wife, Dorcas Gachagua, has come out to describe how they met.

According to Dorcas, she met Gachagua at Kenyatta University through an intriguing turn of events involving the late former president Daniel Moi, according to a recent interview with city preacher Kathy Kiuna.

“It was an interesting day because I had contemplated suicide that day,” Mrs Gachagua said in the interview which aired on Sunday.

Dorcas explained that her mother, who was raising Dorcas and her seven siblings by alone, had involved in a domestic mishap that was the cause of her problems.

She had spent her university funding to purchase her mother a gas oven, which exploded during the tragedy. Her mother was held accountable for the incident that resulted in the burning of the neighbors’ children.

“On that day I was wondering why I had done all these things for my mother instead of using the money for something else. She was crying because of it and I felt that I wanted to die,” said Mrs Gachagua.

She had the chance to relax when a friend encouraged her to visit Kabarnet Gardens, where President Moi would be attending an event.

It so happened that Mr. Gachagua was the one who was recording the names of people leaving.“I thought him interesting, he was wearing a brown suit and a brown stripped tie. He said hello and I just went in without ever thinking that this is the person I would end up marrying because all I ever wanted was to take care of my mother,” she said.

“At Kabarnet we saw the president and at that time I saw an opportunity and so I threw myself at him wanting to be shot and end this matter,” she narrated.

The president turned away when he spotted her heading in his direction and asked to speak with her the next day to talk about what was bothering her.

“They came for me at Kenyatta University to State House and he spoke to me and gave me great lessons about life. He told me to never think of ending my life because of something like that and for two weeks, he was walking me through life,” she said

“He was like a father to me. He gave me my sense of life and dignity,” she said of the late former head of state.

It was at President Moi’s office where she and Mr Gachagua would meet again later, as Dorcas narrated.

“I think [Gachagua] had his own issues and needed to see the president and so he came in with his mother and that day she told him ‘Don’t leave her, I thought you want a graduate?’,” she said.
