Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua on Thursday left Kenyans in stitches as he revealed the amount of money he spends on wife Dorcas Rigathi’s hair.
Speaking during the launch of the Women Enterprise Fund at KICC, Gachagua called on men to step up and ensure their spouses look good.
He went on to say he ensures his wife Dorcas dazzles by giving her money to make her hair.
Gachagua added that men should look for calm women to marry as his wife is content with Sh3000 to make her hair.
“We like to see women glowing…as a man you should give your woman some money (Sh3000) without asking too many questions.
“Look at Pastor Dorcas, I have done my part…it is also important to look for a calm woman. I am so lucky I married a pastor who does not have so many needs. I give her Sh3000 and she is content,” he said.
Adding: “Women should only cover their heads during religious ceremonies in church. On other days they should be pampered, put in hair dryers and style their hair.”

In an interview with city preacher Kathy Kiuna, Pastor Dorcas said she met Gachagua during her student days at Kenyatta University through a twist of fate.
At the time she was suicidal due to a gas explosion in her mother’s house which resulted in two children suffering severe injuries.
“On that day, I was wondering why I had done all these things for my mother instead of using the money for something else. She was crying because of it and I felt like I wanted to die,” she said.
Dorcas was later invited by a friend to Kabarnet Gardens where the late President Moi had a function.
As fate would have it, Gachagua was the one writing down the names of the attendees and they exchanged pleasantries.
At the event, Dorcas was still suicidal and even attempted to breach security to be shot but the late President Moi promised to meet her.
It was through the subsequent interactions with the former President that she met Gachagua, and they began dating and later got married.
She recently described him as the best husband she could ever have while wishing him a happy birthday.
