Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua is yet to move to his official residence in Karen nearly a week after he was sworn into office.

Despite President William Ruto moving to state house on the very day he took oath of office, Gachagua is still living at his Karen home.

In an interview with KTN News on Sunday, Gachagua said he needs time to digest a lot of things going on around his life before moving in there.

Gachagua said he is yet to accept the reality that he is the deputy President of Kenya.

“The things that are going on around me are very momentous. I’m yet to acclimatize, digest and accept the new situation and the status and all. It is very overwhelming. I will need to take some time but in due course I will move into the official residence,”  he said.

He added:

“I’m still here trying to figure out and in any case, there is no hurry, work is going on and in due course, I will move to the official residence, but I will need to digest all the changes, and all the things that are going around me.”

The Deputy President further noted that  his Karen home, however, remains special to the family owing to the memories it carries.

“I have such an emotional attachment to this home, my children grew up here, my parents lived with me here for many years,” Gachagua divulged.

“It is very nostalgic for me to walk away from a home where I have lived for 24 years.”
