Mulu Mutisya's Speech That Almost 'Killed' Retired President Moi in Ukambani

Mulu Mutisya was born 1920 in Wamunyu, Machakos County. He was a member of Parliament for nearly two decades and a Kamba political legend. 

Mutisya was a successful businessman since 1961. He formed the New Akamba Union as an instrument for political mobilisation. Mutisya hailed from Machakos but held sway throughout expansive Ukambani.

President Kenyatta nominated Mutisya to Parliament in 1974. Mutisya was to be a Nominated MP for 18 years and was appointed chairman of the National Water Conservation and Pipeline Company.

Mutisya was also among the few leaders from the region who won the retired President Daniel Arap Moi's heart. At that time Moi visited Ukambani, he moved the crowd on stage with his amazing broken Swahili speech.

Mulu said, "Baba, wanasema Kenyatta ni hayati lakini wewe ni hayati kabisa. Nashukuru sana baba wa taifa kwa sababu uliahidi Kunya hapa ukaharisha, ukahaidi kuja hapa tena ukaharisha tena. Lakini leo baba vile umekunya, nataka nikuambie matako ya hawa mama wote ni maji maji tupuuu”.

This caused different reactions online and until now it’s one of the speeches many will never forget including the former president Moi.
