A County Executive Member (County Minister) attached to Muranga Governor Mwangi Wa Iria administration is now a You Tuber where he hosts popular gospel musicians.
Mr Edward Maina Muiruri who used to be the County Minister in charge of Youths Sports Culture and Social Services and Gender is now a serious content creator in You Tube.
He invites personalities and popular gospel musicians like Loise Kim, Shiru Wa GP among others in his Itugi cia Muturire you tube channel.
In a candid interview with Kkonlinenews.co.ke. Mr Muiruri who used to school together with Governor Mwangi Wa Iria says his show aims at restoring hope to people who have lost it in life and intends to use his show to reduce suicide incidents in Mt Kenya region.
Mr Muiruri who was allegedly suspended by the County boss on April last year seeks to bring in the region’s pillars to use their life as classical examples for other struggling Kenyans to run through them to overcome their daily challenges.
“The show seeks to use thriving personalities lives’ to show our people that despite their success in life, they come from somewhere and this builds confidence and enables those suffering to face life,” Mr Muiruri said.
Although he was suspended over an ‘issue’ in his day to day activities under his docket, our hawk-eyed pressmen can authoritatively report that Mr Muiruri is back.
He reported to work on Thursday January 7, 2020 after ten months and is scheduled to meet with heads of department on Wednesday next week.
Mr Muiruri downplayed the suspension saying he was only away due to Covid-19 pandemic and that he is now back to discharge his duties under the Youths and Social Services dockets.
“There was nothing I was only away due to Covid-19 pandemic but Im back, Wa Iria is my friend way back from school and the friendship will go on even after 2022,” He told our news desk.
He says he is able to balance between the two roles where he will be recording his show on Saturdays for just an hour saying that is his side hustle.
