Days after the Jubilee party ousted Kithure Kindiki from his position of Senate Deputy Speaker, Kindiki has returned with an appeal. On Tuesday 26th May, he aired a message for the President.
Kindiki is still nursing the political blow of his ouster. However, he has returned to the political scene and asked Uhuru not to forget those he represents.
“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,” Professor Kindiki wrote.
Additionally, Kindiki said that there is a need for the President to compensate the people of Tharaka Nithi politically. Following the ouster of Kindiki, Tharaka Nithi residents do not have enough representation in the Senate.
“Additionally, I request His Excellency the President to compensate the people of Tharaka Nithi for my removal. He should appoint another son or daughter of the county to a senior position in government. There are reports of a possible reorganization of the government,” Kindiki stated.
Fake social media accounts
Kindiki also went ahead to clarify that the remarks on his social media accounts were not his. He said he does not even own the accounts or have access to them.
“I have not issued any other statement through any media. I shut my Facebook and Twitter Accounts two years ago, and I am not on social media. When I decide to return, I will do so formally,” Kindiki said.
The professor asked Kenyans to ignore the statements made on Facebook and Twitter. He said that someone must have opened the accounts to impersonate him and give comments that he would never relinquish.
Kindiki thanked all the leaders, including the Njuri Ncheke, who stood by him during his ouster. Kindiki also said that he was never disloyal to President Uhuru Kenyatta. He said that he respects the President.
