Any politician would pay to have her enemies where Kirinyaga Women Representative Hon Purity Wangui Ngirici has her opponents at this juncture. If it is not Martha Karua struggling to remain politically relevant against the overwhelming popularity of Hon Ngirici, it is Ann Waiguru confirming that she will not be defending her seat because it is as good as reserved for the Women Rep in 2022 and nothing she does seems to help matters.
The latest to eat the humble pie after coming face to face with the devastating support Hon Purity Ngirici enjoys on the ground in Kirinyaga is the Interior PS Dr. Karanja Kibicho. After struggling for days trying to gain a critical mass of Kirinyaga County residents to back his efforts in organizing a successful Mashujaa Day event in Kirinyaga, Dr. Kibicho was forced to turn to Hon Purity Ngirici to help him in reaching out to the County Residents and the rest is history.
But before Hon Purity Ngirici’s supporters could give the Interior PS a hearing, he was forced to publicly commit to desist from undermining her political efforts any further. In turn, he went as far as to confirm that he will not be seeking any political seat in 2022. He even had to undertake to work with (read support) Hon Purity Ngirici to reassure the many Kirinyaga residents who were taking his overtures towards their beloved Women Rep. with suspicion.
But even as the political fortunes of Hon Purity Wangui Ngirici continue to rise, many in the ranks of her political detractors are trying to read too much into her generous offer to support Dr. Karanja Kibicho in making the Mashujaa day event in Kirinyaga a success. However, as Hon Purity Ngirici and those in the UDA camp have been quick to note, Mashujaa Day is merely a national event and has nothing to do with politics of Mt. Kenya where and she remains Ruto’s Point Person.
In fact, as leaders from Mt. Kenya have pointed countless times, there is no problem with Kirinyaga or any Kirinyaga County hosting President Uhuru having voted him to the last man. The truth is on 8th August 2017, Kirinyaga County voted Uhuru 297,652 (98.6%) Votes out of 301,856 Votes. On 26th October 2017, Kirinyaga County voted Uhuru 293,373 (99.6%) Votes out of 294,619 Votes.
The people of Kirinyaga County have no issue with President Uhuru Kenyatta or any official of the National Government. The only issue Kirinyaga people insist on, as do the rest of Mt. Kenya, is that President Uhuru must leave the people of Kirinyaga to decide their own political destiny in 2022. Hosting Mashujaa Day, which is a National Event, in Kirinyaga has anything to do with succession politics and Hon. Purity Ngirici is right to lend her hand in making the day a success.
In any case, holding Mashujaa Day in Kirinyaga is good news for the County’s businesses which are already struggling under the weight of Covid-19 pandemic. Receiving dignitaries from across the country will not only help in painting the Kirinyaga County in the proper light, it will be a big boost for small-scale traders and businesses in the area. This is the time to put aside sectarian politics and personal interests for the sake of what is good for the people of Kirinyaga.
And as many have also noted, Hon Purity Ngirici working with Kibicho to make Mashujaa Day a success also goes to show the goodwill in Mt. Kenya the Jubilee Government has missed to tap while pursuing the mirage of winning the favour of NASA strongholds in the name of Handshake. Hon Ngirici also stands at a vantage point in ensuring the interests of the Deputy President are secured by ensuring the right crowd attends President Uhuru’s last Mashujaa Day as President.
Finally, as Mama Kirinyaga County, Hon. Purity Ngirici is the official hostess of Kirinyaga County on behalf of the County Residents. It falls on her to make every guest of the Kirinyaga people including the President and his dignitaries feel welcome and ensure everything goes well. Only those who were hoping to take advantage of Mashujaa Day being held in Kirinyaga to push their personal agenda are disappointed that Hon Purity Ngirici has ruined their sinister schemes.
Why Mbaluka is Next Machakos Senator: Kavindu Yet to Make Maiden Speech
Today is 1st April, 2022, a total of 373 days since Agnes Kavindu Muthama was sworn as in as 3rd Machakos Senator on 23rd March 2021. But Senator Kavindu is yet to make her maiden speech in the Senate. Indeed, as of today, the last words that came from the mouth of Senator Kavindu from the floor of the Senate is “Help me God.”
This should serve as a lesson to Machakos residents who voted her thinking they are punishing Hon Johnstone Muthama. The count went from having a robust and firebrand Senator in the person of Late Dr. Boniface Kabaka to having a person who cannot speak English to save herself from thirst in the person of Kavindu (whose name aptly means impeding darkness).
In 131 Days, People of Machakos shall have an opportunity to vote for another Senator. They must not make the same mistake they did last time. Thankfully, Wakili Joel Kyatha Mbaluka has graciously agreed to suspend his gubernatorial ambitions to vie for Senator to offer his people the oversight and representation they urgently need.
Machakos County have no choice but to elect Hon Wakili Joel Kyatha Mbaluka to the last man come Tuesday 9th August 2022. Wakili Mbaluka has what it takes to square out with fellow counsel at the Senate. He has the academic papers, he is articulate, he has the integrity and he has the knowledge to deliver as Machakos Senator.
Wakili Mbaluka holds Masters in Public Finance Management, which is what Machakos County residents need to stop the kleptocracy that Machakos has come to be known for. People of Machakos, please don’t elect another illiterate or someone who has been part of what is wrong at Machakos County. Give Wakili Mbaluka a chance to deliver for you as Senator.
Kitui West MP Contest Becomes a Two-Horse Race as Muasya Leads Incumbent
The Kitui West MP Race has come down to a Two-Horse Race between the incumbent Edith Nyenze and the Incoming MP Hon Ben Muasya who is the obvious choice of majority of the Constituents. The People of Kitui West appear to have had enough of the Nyenze and Wambua Dynasties especially now with Mrs Nyenze is MP with her brother as Kitui Senator. The People are determined to elect Hon Ben Muasya as the Kitui West MP for a breath of fresh air, new ideas and better representation.
Kitui West Constituents have mainly been endeared to Hon Ben Muasya by his innovative development approach which has seen him pioneer key empowerment projects including table banking and small business support projects across Kitui West. In doing this, Hon Ben Muasya has been leveraging his strong credentials as a Management Consultant of international standing and leading businessman in the country. His projects have so far benefitted thousands of Kitui West Residents directly with many more benefiting indirectly.
In turn, this has caught the eyes of many including UDA Presidential Candidate and Deputy President Dr. William Ruto who has not only hailed Hon Ben Muasya Projects as a case study of how leaders can implement his Bottom Up Economic Model at the Constituency level to transform the lives of their constituents. As a result, the first trip Dr. William Ruto made to Kitui County was to Hon Ben Muasya’s home to engage with beneficiaries of his empowerment projects as well as to undertake a fundraising in support of scaling up the project.
Indeed, the popularity of Hon Ben Muasya has not only made all the potential opponents he had for the UDA ticket to switch to support him or defect to another party, it is said to be giving the incumbent MP sleepless nights. Having done nothing tangible with her CDF since taking over after the By-Election, Mrs Nyenze is hard-pressed to explain to wananchi in Kitui West how Hon Ben Muasya could do more than her in so short a time without the benefit of the CDF kitty.
Four months to the election and as party nomination draw near a close, Kitui West Residents are getting ready for a showdown between Hon Ben Muasya, the popular favourite as the newcomer, and Hon Edith Nyenze, who is weighed down by the weight of incumbency and voter apathy due to her unimpressive development record. The difference between these two leaders is like day and night. No question much is in store for Kitui West Residents and the next four months are going to be epic for Kitui West.
It is clear that Hon Ben Muasya is ready to turn things upside down to ensure service delivery for Kitui West residents. On the other hand, Mrs Nyenze is busy fighting to maintain the status quo and trying to defend her dismal record. She has tried everything including blaming the Covid-19 pandemic for her poor performance but Kitui West residents have had enough. Majority of Kitui West Residents are waiting for 9th August 2022 to usher in Hon Ben Muasya as their next MP.
Friends of Ruto (FORM Kenya) Condemns Violence Against DP in Kisumu
Walter Trenk, Secretary General of FORM KENYA and the UDA Senatorial Aspirant for Nairobi County has condemned the chaos unleashed by hired goons to disrupt Ruto meeting in Kondele, Kisumu county.
We at FORM KENYA ( Friends of Ruto Movement – Kenya) do hereby wish to condemn, in the strongest terms possible, the cowardly acts of hooliganism and violence witnessed today in Kisumu during the Deputy President, Dr. William Ruto’s tour of the Nyanza region. We call upon the police to move with speed and arrest the perpetrators of the primitive acts of violence.
Violence and political intolerance has no place in our politics in the twenty first century. Every politician should be allowed to sell their agenda to every part of the country unhindered and without fear of intimidation or violence.
A few weeks ago, the Cabinet Secretary for Interior, Dr. Fred Matiang’i led a group of government functionaries in what was claimed to be a meeting to plan on ensuring that Kenyans are given a free, fair and credible election. An opportunity has presented itself for them to demonstrate to Kenyans and the entire world that they are ready, able and Wiling to live up to this onerous task.
We expect arrests and arraignment of the criminals within the next twenty four hours, failure of which, we will be left with no option but to believe that the government security agencies were involved in the macabre acts and are incapable of providing security to the citizens.
Walter Trenk, Secretary General, FORM KENYA & UDA Senatorial Aspirant, Nairobi County.
