Friday May 22, 2020 – Muranga County Senator, Irungu Kangata, was appointed as Majority Chief Whip in the Senate last week after Nakuru Senator, Susan Kihika, was axed by Senators allied to Jubilee Party.
Kangata, who rose from being a Councilor, to Kiharu MP and to the Senate is now among the few men in Central who have President Uhuru Kenyatta’s ear.
Kangata’s dream was to vie for the Muranga gubernatorial seat in 2022 since the current scandalous Muranga Governor, Mwangi wa Iria, is going home in 2022.
But the President‘s move to appoint Kangata to the top seat seems to have not augured well with the Muranga electorate.
Those interviewed in Muranga said Kangata is a snitch and they will not support his gubernatorial ambitions in 2022.
Instead, they said they will support Kiharu MP, Ndindi Nyoro, for the top seat because he had demonstrated that he is tough like late veteran politician, Kenneth Matiba.
Kenneth Matiba is a second liberation hero who sacrificed all his wealth to ensure that there is democracy and equality in Kenya.
