Photos have emerged of Rigathi Gachagua’s old friend who interrupted his speech today at his brother’s funeral and demanded Ksh1000 ‘debt’.
The man walked direct to Gachagua,demanded the money and without hesitation,he was handed the one thousand note.
Then Gachagua clarified that the man is his old friend who both agreed that any time they meet Gachagua should give him Ksh1,000.
This caught the mourners by surprise forcing the newly appointed Kenya Kwanza running mate to acknowledge that he knew the ‘intruder’ to allay fears.
“Anasema nimpange mapema kuna mahali anaenda. Ni rafiki yangu anaitwa Muchangi…tuliagana na yeye 18 years ago that kila tukionanana nampa Sh1,000. Sasa ameniambia amengoja kutoka 10:00 a.m. na kuna mahali anataka kwenda na ameshindwa kungojea
“(He is my friend Muchangi, 18 years ago we agreed that every time we meet I’d give him Sh1,000. He was letting me know that he has been waiting since 10:00 a.m. and because he has somewhere else to go, he had to speak to me before he left),” Rigathi made light of the incident.
