The DP's wife said it is part of the Kenya Kwanza government's agenda to solemnise police officers' marriages.

Second Lady Dorcas Gachagua has pledged to help police officers in institutionalising their marital unions.

Speaking on Saturday, November 26, during the commissioning of 11 police officers to be clerics at the Nyeri Administration Police Line, Dorcas said she would avail herself in the annual weddings so as to stress the importance of strong families among the men and women in uniform.

She declared that this was among the government's agenda to dignify the disciplinary service(s).

"Together with the National Police Service, we shall sponsor uniformed mass weddings every year as a way of establishing police families. This is part of the Kenya Kwanza Government's agenda, and promise to upgrade police welfare," she said.

The wife to Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua marveled at the ascension of officers to the priesthood, arguing that it was an indicator that the police service was transforming for the better.

She called on the officers to be ambassadors of Christian virtues despite their tainted image.

"There is a transformation happening in this country, even as we witness today's occasion of our security officers being commissioned to the priesthood. I urge all officers to always stand by the truth, and they will succeed," said Pastor Dorcas.

The second lady said this mission complements her efforts to empower the boychild and vulnerable members of society.

"In my office, a critical pillar alongside that of boy child, widows, orphans, and persons with disabilities,  is that of Chaplaincy and family values," she said.
