Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua says President William Ruto's State visit to the United States has been highly successful, praising the Head of State for striking major agreements beneficial to the country.

The DP said the President has affirmed his great leadership skills among the league of nations, adding that Kenya has earned huge respect globally for raising the profile during the visit to the US.

"We are proud of our President. His visit to the United States has earned a lot of fortune that will be beneficial to our country. He has brought respect and honour to our country," the DP said.

The Deputy President spoke on Saturday when he attended the ordination of Rt Reverend John Kiplimo Lelei as Auxiliary Bishop of Eldoret Catholic Diocese at Mother of Apostles Seminary in Eldoret town.

The ordination was presided over Apostolic Nuncio to Kenya Archbishop Hurbetus Van Megen.

Gachagua said the government is focused on delivering services to the people and will continue to work closely with the church in the implementation of the development agenda.

"The State and the church are one. The mission hospitals run by the Catholic Church are critical in providing complementary healthcare services to the people. We will work together to improve the lives of the people," he said.

At the same time, the DP announced that the government has released Ksh.600 million to pay farmers delivering milk to the New KCC.

"The farmers will receive their money because we are focused in improving their lives by ensuring better pay," he said.

Additionally, the government has set aside funds to purchase maize from farmers in the North Rift and the whole country.
