Are leaders born or trained, that is the big question one would ask when it comes to leadership. Talking of leadership, it is not easy to meet Kirinyaga senator Charles Kibiru face to face. The soft spoken Senator is not always in the press to engage journalists on small talks. Kibiru, the senator of the resting place of the Agikuyu God, is a man of principles who knows why he was chosen by the Kirinyaga netizens to be their representative in the Senate.
The super senator chairs the Senate's Budget Committee and is undoubtedly, a generous guy. The difference between the senator and other political leaders, is that he normally help his people without expecting any kickbacks, or any type of favours in return. He recently put the Treasury to task during a virtual meeting for being stingy with allocating funds to the devolved units that is county governments.
"Why have you refused to disburse money to counties, and even after getting the auto-genarated response, we have cash flow problems," Kibiru asked Treasury Chief Administrative secretary Nelson Gaichuhie. He went further to challenge the ministry to get its facts right. He was on high spirits and promised to follow back on the matter. In fact the senator was doing more than just asking questions.
Interestingly, he chaired the one hour virtual sitting and issued directives. To their amusement, those who were following the meeting virtually, didn't know the senator was chairing the meeting from the hospital bed. Until when the senator made his valediction, and the cameras turned on him, is when most people realized he was on the hospital bed. This is not the first time the senator is chairing the virtual meeting from the hospital, he had chaired a similar meeting from the same bed. Everyone hailed his commitment to service and sense of national duty.
