Nyeri Govenor Mutahi Kahiga is one of the governors who are keen to defend their positions in the next general election. After taking over as the governor, Mutahi Kahiga has been making different moves with the latest one being his decision to declare his support to Deputy President William Ruto ahead of the forthcoming general election.
Today, Deputy President William Ruto and many of his supporters were at the Jacaranda ground. Although everything started off well, there a bitter ending as chaotic scenes were witnessed forcing the police to use teargas to disperse rowdy youths who chanted Raila Odinga's name. In that rally, Mutahi Kahiga was nowhere to be seen thus leaving many people doubting if really the Nyeri county Governor is with the Deputy President or not but as we are speaking, Mutahi Kahiga has broken his silence with an emotional message after skipping the chaotic Jacaranda meeting.
Through his official twitter account, Mutahi Kahiga stated that he was condoling with the family and friends of the late Mary Wambui Muriuki in Kianjau village in Mathira West. He went on to state that he was accompanied by area MCA Erastus Karanja in providing solace to the family and friends. "I condoled with the family and friends of the late Mary Wambui Muriuki in Kianjau village, Kiamariga, Ruguru ward in Mathira West. I was accompanied by area MCA Erastus Karanja Muriuki in providing solace to the family and friends." Tweeted Mutahi Kahiga.
Since he declared that he will support DP William Ruto, Mutahi Kahiga has not been as active in Ruto's rallies as many of the other hustler nation leaders. Instead, he has been doing his own campaigns in Nyeri and working for his people. Whether he will stick to Ruto's side up to the end is not yet known for now, but definitely, it will be known by time.
