The spouse to Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has said despite being raised in the 'ghetto' she rose to become the Second Lady of the country.
In an undated video shared by Citizen Digital, Pastor Dorcas Rigathi said more women should be seen in higher levels of leadership as they are able to do many things despite not going to school.
"I am a woman in government right now, I came from a ghetto and that has not stopped me from rising to the Second Lady position in the republic," she said.
Pastor Dorcas further stated that women should be able to access informal learning, and access to direct markets to change their lives.
"That will change the lives of many women."
At the beginning of the month, Kenyans on Twitter nicknamed Pastor Dorcas 'Rigathress'
The new moniker is a combination of the name Rigathi and the prefix 'ress.'
Briph a Twitter user said Kenyans don't care when it comes to nicknaming popular figures in the country.
"Kenyans are on autopilot and they don't care where they will land now. Naming the second lady Rigathress," he tweeted.
Another Twitter user, Samoei said the name Rigathress sounds sweet and sexy.
Pastor Dorcas had earlier stated that she is yet to find a nickname.
“Nowadays my husband is called Riggy G, I am still waiting for my name,” she said.
She was speaking at the University of Nairobi while attending a boychild's event.
DP Rigathi embraced the nickname given to him by Ivy Chelimo in a social media post.
"Riggy G is melodious," he said at a primary school music festival.
He said the nickname had made life easier for people who would experience difficulties pronouncing his mouthful name.
