National Cohesion and Integration Commissioner (NCIC) and Muranga daughter Wambui Nyutu has broken the silence over his 2022 political ambitions.
There has been speculations from members of public, the political class and political pundits that the down to earth young turk will be seeking for Maragua Parliamentary seat while others have speculated that Ms Nyutu will seek the Women Representative post.
In fact, her decision to bring highly powered government delegation to Gakoigo Stadium on February this year that included Interior Cs Fred Matiang’i his PS Karanja Kibicho, Raila Odinga’s son Raila Junior among others, was interpreted by many as a show of political might and opulence that she is ready to battle it out with any serious contender come 2022.
But in an exclusive interview with Kkonlinenews.co.ke the youth leader said she is engaged in improving the livelihoods of her natives that that she shall declare to the world about her political ambitions when the time comes.
She said she was committed in discharging the mandate bestowed to her by the President through Parliament as the commissioner for NCIC as well as using her influence to help the needy in her home area.
“My conduct at the moment is to purely improve the livelihoods of our people. I see people guessing that I’m eyeing a seat in 2022, this is not in my mind at the moment, if such a time will come, I will personally declare it for the world to know,” she said.
Asked why then she has been helping the needy and building a computer lab for Nginda Mixed Day Secondary School, the well connected lady castigated the local leadership for neglecting Nginda region of Maragua Constituency saying desperate locals cried to her and decided to answer their cries.
Schools development is part of the objectives that are supposed to be undertaken by National Government Constituency Development Funds (NGCDF) whose patron is local MP Mary Waithira Wamaua.
“Leaders have always ignored this part of Maragua. The locals cried out to me and I had to deliver this for them,” she said.
She said the construction of the computer lab will cost Sh2 million whole the equipment will cost Sh400000 and that will be complete in the next two months.
She said the project will boost the esteem of the children and motivate them to pass exams.
“Infrastructure is a great tool to excellence, the students will gain computer literacy skills that will boost their esteem and mould them to the current job market that highly relies on IT, and again this is a school near our home and charity begins at home,” she added.
Other than the computer laboratory for Nginda Mixed, Ms Nyutu through her Wambui Nyutu foundation will commence the rehabilitation of Ihigaini Primary School which she says is in deplorable condition.
“They don’t resemble like classes of 21st century. No desks, some classes are almost collapsing and floors are totally destroyed. I attended this school when I was joint and I need to improve it,” she said.
