Rigathress, Kenyans on Twitter alias KOT are at it again. The community has coined a nickname for the 2nd Lady, H.E Dorcas Rigathi.
Her new name combines Rigathi, her husband’s name and the prefix ress.
Her nickname comes barely a week after she complained of not having a nickname. While speaking at the University of Nairobi, where she attended a boychild mentorship program, the 2nd lady reminded the audience that she has not yet been nicknamed and is waiting.
“Nowadays, my husband is called Riggy G. I am still waiting for my name.“
