DP Gachagua urges Kenyans to have many children not just two.
While speaking at his brother’s funeral, DP Gachagua urges Kenyans to have many children.
He termed the trend of having less children as ‘follish’ and influenced by westernization.
DP Gachagua said,”I think some of us were not very wise…When wazungus came they told us to have two children and we accepted.”
“Looking back in my case, I think it was foolish,”DP Gachagua added.
He stated that he love the 1970s era where were giving birth to many children as possible. Family planning ruined the patterns.
DP Gachagua said,”These are things that we did in the 70s, family planning and the like and we followed them without thinking. Now we find ourselves in a situation that is not very nice.”
The Deputy president however, encouraged parents to take their kids to school. He maintained that education is key in everything.
“Education is important. Parents, let us educate our children. In our family, we were nine siblings. Seven of us were educated to university level. Just imagine that the success rate was asked.” DP Gachagua said.
