Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has once again visited the mountain to pray.
Gachagu is praying and thanking God for the rain witnessed across the country this time around.
"I took time to thank the almighty for his Grace and mercy for giving us rain after five consecutive failed seasons and the worst drought in 40 years," Gachagua said.
The DP also prayed to God to give more rain and a bountiful harvest.
In January, Gachagua trekked to Mt Kenya for prayers as senior government officials' retreat was ongoing in Nanyuki, Laikipia county.
In a statement on Twitter, the DP said that the one-hour trek reminded him of the struggle for Kenya's freedom.
"I woke up early this morning at 4 am to make a nostalgic journey to The Mountain. The one-hour trek that included crossing River Rikkia reminded me of the great struggle for our freedom," he said.
"I took time to thank God for his mercy and kindness to the people of Kenya and for giving us the freedom we are now enjoying."
Gachagua disclosed that he faced Mt Kenya and prayed for President William Ruto.
"Facing Mount Kenya, I prayed to 'Mwene Nyaga' to give good health and wisdom to our Great Leader President William Ruto as he embarks on the economic transformation of our nation and the restoration of the dignity of the Kenyan people. Mlima is calm, steady, and stoic na iko sawa," he said.
Here are reactions from his Kenyans:
SK Lenguiyia: Whoever stole Ruto's manifesto will never see heaven......Kenyans are suffering, even Gachietha is suffering mentally and physically.
Kipruto Arap Temuge: Why doesn't he stick to one God /god? He went to pray for the rains a month ago in Kasarani and now he's in the mountain to thank the god of the mountain for the rains.
Augustine Njenga Kahura: Before the coming of mzungu, the Traditional African society used to pray like this until mzungu brainwashed us.
Selinah Wandaye: This is always a month of rains, stop trying God he's not your agemate,pray for wisdom because that is what you luck.
