Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua and his wife Dorcas Rigathi on Monday hosted Kenyan boy band Sauti Sol in Gaborone, Botswana.

The DP stated that they held fruitful discussions around the welfare of youth and how the award-winning group can aid in nurturing talent.

Gachagua added that they also explored ways to rescue young people trapped in substance abuse and how they can be assisted to lead meaningful lives.

“This evening, @Pastor_Dorcas and I hosted members of the popular Kenya Boys band @sautisol in Gaborone, Botswana.

“They are participating in the Forbes Under 30 Africa Summit. We had an enriching conversation on empowerment of our youth and the role they, as mentors in their industry and elsewhere, can play in helping vulnerable young people nurture and sharpen their talent to fruition,” he wrote.
