If elections were held between today and next year anti-jigger crusader Stanley Kamau alias Kamau Wa Ndutu would be elected as either the Senator or Mathioya MP.
In a poll whose results are yet to be released to public, locals said Kamau Wa Ndutu could take the Mathioya Parliamentary seat from a silver platter and also the Senatorial seat.
The random computer-aided telephone survey was conducted between mid-June and July 14 with 3,127 respondents from all the 7 constituencies with the sample split proportionate to the population size. It carries a 1.75 percent margin of error.
The survey shows that for every 10 registered voters 6 expressed confidence with Kamau Wa Ndutu as their Senator and while asked who would be their preferred Senatorial candidate, 7 out of the 10 mentioned Wa Ndutu.
“The survey indicates that Muranga people want Kamau Wa Ndutu to announce his political ambitions due to his massive and life changing projects that are humanitarian and philanthropic,” Agnes Mwangi a pollster said.
The survey further shows that while Mathioya people want Wa Ndutu to vie for parliamentary seat, other Constituencies want him to go for Senate.
Among the 7 Constituencies, the poll shows that although Wa Ndutu is known in each Constituency, he could sweep all the votes from Mathioya, Kangema, Maragua and Kandara Constituencies.
From removing jiggers, advocating for rights of the disadvantaged and feeding the vulnerable, Wa Ndutu’s acts of mercy has attracted the highest office in the Kenyan soil after he was appointed to advise First lady Margret Kenyatta at her Beyond Zero campaign initiative.
In 2018, Wa Ndutu was awarded with Royal’s award by the Institute of the African Royals becoming the third person to receive the honor from the institute in the whole of Africa. The 53 year old philanthropist is also a director at Kenyatta National Hospital.
In 2018, the well-connected leader dined with Supreme Court Judge Njoki Ndungu, President Uhuru Kenyatta’s sister Anna Nyokabi and a host of leaders; Reps Sabina Chege (Murang’a), Mukami Rahab (Nyeri) and MPs Peter Kimari (Mathioya), Ndindi Nyoro (Kiharu) and Charles Kanyua (Starehe during his birthday celebrations.
When reached for a comment, Wa Ndutu said it was too early to discuss politics saying his Ahadi Kenya Trust non-government organization was busy changing lives of the Kenya people.
“No seat is vacant, from the MCA to the President and discussing 2022 general election at this time will deter leaders from delivering services to the people. Let us give the elected leaders an opportunity to complete their mandate to the people,” he told our political desk.
