Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has assured Kenyans in the diaspora that the country is on the right path, urging them to invest back home and highlighting President William Ruto’s accomplishments and some of the opportunities to invest.

While addressing more than 400 members of the Diaspora Community in Kigali, Rwanda on Saturday night, DP Gachagua noted that the economy has fully recovered due to strategic decisions made by the Kenya Kwanza administration, with political stability and security that is good for investment.

"Kenya's security is high. Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki has helped restore security in North Rift and Lamu. It will continue so that the government can create the right atmosphere to attract investment and tourism. Kenya is great again, we have political stability, everybody is busy and we are back on the right trajectory in terms of economic development," said Gachagua.

Economic recovery and cost of living
