Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua’s Spouse Pastor Dorcas Rigathi has made a commitment to safeguard the boy-child from destructive choices and behaviors.

Speaking in Kakamega when she met the Association of Pentecostal and Evangelical Clergy of Kenya (APECK), Pastor Dorcas said she will lead rehabilitation of boys who are addicted to drugs.She noted that the rescue efforts will also target those who have fallen into other forms of addiction such as immorality which is destroying their lives and the moral fabric of the society.

Pastor Dorcas called upon the Church and other religious organizations to provide safe spaces and accommodate those who will undergo rehabilitation, while asking church leaders to also play a role in rehabilitating the lost boys.

“We need to transform their hearts and thoughts, so that they can get freedom. It is our duty as the Church, mosques and temples to go after children and protect them from satanic agenda,” she noted.

She disclosed that the National Government is also intensifying efforts to tame those manufacturing and distributing harmful illicit brews, to protect children from destruction.

Kakamega Deputy Governor, Ayub Savula, asked the National government to implement the Michuki laws to reduce the increasing road accidents that have claimed lives of Kenyans.

He also asked for police officers to heighten security surveillance in Matungu Sub- county where there seems to have a resurgence of conflict, leading to attacks and killings.

“We have already lost three people in Matungu Sub-county in the last three weeks over attacks,” he pointed out.

Wife to the Kakamega Governor, Prof. Janet Kasilly Barasa, who was present during the meeting called for collaboration among stakeholders, to address a myriad of societal challenges such as drug addiction, widows, Sexual and Gender Based Violence and HIV/AIDs in the county.
