Ivy Chelimo, a student who named Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua as Riggy G, has landed a job at the DP’s office.
As Kenyans fussed about Rigathi Gachagua’s TV interviews and melodrama in the last political campaigns, someone made a name for herself. We all heard the Riggy G tag and tagged along, but one person took it seriously.
Just a month after being sworn in as the Deputy President, Rigathi Gachagua has located the girl who called her Riggy G.
“This is the lady who replaced my name with ‘Riggy G’. I looked for her and rewarded her with a job at my office,” Gachagua said.
The girl, who goes by the name Ivy Chelimo, joined the Deputy President on Monday at a meeting in Kajiado County where she was ushered by the country’s second in command to speak to the public for the first time since she came up with the name.
Gachagua had promised to reward the girl for giving him the stylish name Riggy G.
Speaking during the meeting, Ivy Chelimo confirmed that she had been offered a job at the deputy’s office.
“I thank you for the job you offered me today in the morning. Thank you so much,” she said.
She further thanked the Deputy President for believing in the youth and entrusting with crucial roles in the government.
The Deputy President admits that the nickname Riggy G is melodious to hear and easier to pronounce.
Ivy Chelimo’s new job comes as a reward for giving the Deputy President a new and cool image that replaces his recent public muddles.
