Linet Toto, a Bomet Woman Representative, stole the show in Rwanda on Thursday while traveling with Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua on his first international tour.

On Thursday, Mr. Gachagua took a flight to Rwanda for the Youth Connect Africa Summit, which was hosted by Rwandan President Reuben Kagame and attended by numerous African leaders.

Mr. Gachagua brought Toto along for the occasion, and he lavished the 24-year-old with accolades, referring to her as a political miracle for Kenya.

Other leaders who made the trip included MPs Sylvanus Osoro, Ndindi Nyoro, Patric Munene, Mohammed Ali, Pamela Njoki, Vincent Kawaya, John Paul Mwirigi, Ken Aramat and Karugu Thangwa.

“I came with 12 young leaders who were elected the other day and whom we have given immense responsibility in the National Assembly so that the young people can start taking their rightful place,” Gachagua said.

He added as the crowd cheered: “I came with one of the miracles in our country, a little young girl, 24 years old and was elected as the Woman Rep of Bomet county defeating a mature experienced Woman.”

Mr. Gachagua used the just concluded August General Election to serve as a motivation to the African youths noting that about 33 per cent of elected leaders were young people.

He said: “In the last elections we held on the 9th of August, our National Assembly has 349 members, young people of your age went into the elections, sold the youth agenda and said they had what it takes and the people were so persuaded.”

“The people of Kenya indicated their faith and believe in the young people and 33% of all the members of the NA elected are below the age of 35 years.”

In similar vein, Gachagua advised African leaders to prioritize empowering the next generation in order to improve the continent’s stability and future.

He remarked: “You’re the future of the continent, the future of the people of this continent, especially the older population in your hands. You have what it takes to take the continent to the next level.”
