Wednesday May 27, 2020 – Days after being ousted as Senate Deputy Speaker for disrespecting President Uhuru Kenyatta, Tharaka Nithi Senator, Kithure Kindiki, has returned to the political scene with a message specifically designed for the President.
Kindiki who is still nursing political blows from an impeachment at the Senate, asked President Uhuru Kenyatta not to forget the people who he represents in Parliament.
“In the meantime, I respectfully appeal to President Kenyatta’s administration to hasten the completion of several roads, water and other development projects that began in 2013 but have since stalled,” wrote Professor Kindiki.
Senator Kindiki also vouched for the need to politically recompense residents of Tharaka Nithi County, having lost a plum slot in the Senate.
“Additionally, I request His Excellency the President to compensate the people of Tharaka Nithi for my removal by appointing another son or daughter of the county to a senior position in Government, in the wake of reports of a possible reorganisation of the Government,” Kindiki requested.
He further addressed reports over his social media accounts adding that any remarks attributed to him on the said accounts were not his.
The former Deputy Speaker further thanked the Ameru Council of Elders Njuri Ncheke, the Tharaka Council of elders, political leaders and the Kenyans who stood with him during his ouster.
