Kiharu Mp Ndindi Nyoro has recognized his arch rival and 2017 competitor Karanja Mburu Wamatangi over his enormous projects in the vast Constituency.
The MP heaped praises to Engineer Wamatangi saying his community based projects have uplifted lives and impacted positively to the Kiharu people gesturing an endorsement move in Wamatangi’s bid to lead Kiharu.
It is understood that the MP could be seeking to vie for another seat probably the Senatorial or gubernatorial post and his latest move could be a sign that Wamatangi is the ideal MP for Kiharu due to his strong formidable grassroot presence through his community designed projects.
Speaking at Grogon area of Muranga town during a prayers session for the seven fallen mechanics, Mr Nyoro continued to wish Mr Wamatangi well in his political endeavours saying he has continued being a true servant, another gesture that shows that the MP could be psychologically preparing locals to Mr Wamatangi’s tenure as the MP.
“I wholeheartedly thank my brother Karanja Mburu Wamatangi for his continued support to the electorate through his well thought out and laid out community projects, may God continue guiding him and protecting him and I wish him well in his ambitions,” the MP said.
Mr Wamatangi is one of the leaders who had supported the prayer session event and has been in the forefront in championing for the rights and well being of the down trodden locals in Kiharu.
Through his own pockets, (Karanja Wamatangi foundation) and Can Do Kids organization where is he is the country’s director, he has constructed houses for the poor the orphans and the disadvantaged, constructed tanks in Kiharu to improve sanitation as well as donating facemasks and other items to help in the fight against Covid-19 pandemic.
While speaking at the prayer event, Mr Wamatangi called on Muranga County Government to earmark a testing grounds for mechanics to be testing vehicles after repairing them in bid to reduce deaths among mechanics.
“We have lost mechanics who have died while testing vehicles after repairing them, this could be a thing of the past should the county government set a aside land for the testing purposes,” he said while urging them to set a aside a day for prayers.
After the event the two politicians came together for a photo session in photos that have gone viral with the two leaders’ supporters confused on the game of cards being played by the two.
In his entire political life, Mr Wamatangi has never been engaged in political duel with his competitor even after the general elections.
The coming together of the two leaders have left people speculating whether Mr Nyoro is either keen on endorsing Wamatangi or they are preparing for a joint ticket for Kiharu in case the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report’s proposal to have multi Constituencies sail through given that Kiharu is one of the electoral areas that will benefit from the proposal to produce two MPs.
