Speaking to MWINGI TIMES, Mwingi OCPD Peter Mutuma decried an increase in road crashes within the township.

The Mwingi police boss was speaking after confirming injury of four road users yesterday at around 7pm.

The accident occurred along Mwingi-Thika road involving a motor vehicle which was being driven from Mwingi general direction towards Thika direction.

“Upon reaching Delta petrol station, there were four men carrying a billboard that was wide enough to occupy a reasonable part of the road, without reflecting materials to alert other road users at night hours heading the same direction hence the driver did not notice them from a distance, rammed on them and stopped a few meters away on the left side.”, said Mutuma.

The Mwingi police commander said Peter Kitili, Mbuvi Muthui, James Kilanga and Francis Kyalo Mulyungi were seriously injured during the accident. All the four were taken to Mwingi Level Four Hospital and the vehicle that hit them was detained at Mwingi Police Station awaiting inspection and further police action.

Speaking to MWINGI TIMES, a trader lamented that Kenya Power has a habit of disconnecting electricity during the day and only allowing it to run during the night.

He exclaims that the situation was like night data bundles since the energy distribution monopoly reconnects his business at around 11am and switches off the following morning at 8am.

"They always disconnect us from the national grid at a time like this when schools are closed yet it is the time our businesses peak", said Alfred Mutua who runs Camp Nou studio for showcasing football, computer games and movies.

Master orator to contend with CNN, Kitungi in the fight for Mwingi West MP

 No doubt Patrick Koki Musau alias Kuvasila’s candidature has made Mwingi West parliamentary seat competition tough.

The stakes are high given the Wiper party incumbent MP CNN is defending his seat against an increasingly confident former MP and electorate being lobbied to vote for individuals not parties.

Both Koki and Bernard Kitungi have accompanied gubernatorial candidate David Musila as he crisscrossed the expansive constituency last week and today.

Conspicuously absent from the rallies was CNN.

Kuvasila has been the most outspoken. He buys time to let others speak before him and when he takes to the mic, the residents are treated to humour and near fable stories full of wit and vague generalities.


Over time, the former governor Charity Ngilu minister has trained his guns on his two political nemeses, Kitungi and CNN. He says Kitungi has had his time and CNN his too before quickly appointing himself as the most fit to be area MP.

Koki says that it is only senator David Musila and him who are philanthropic enough to help citizens from time to time. He looks forward to better working relationship with him.

While Musila’s manifesto includes providing food for nursery school children, Patrick said that he will work with national government to introduce a similar program in primary school once elected.

“I will provide food for all students from class one to eight. My bill that I will take to parliament includes lowering the age that should get cash for wazees from 70 to 55 so that they can enjoy themselves by buying new shoes and clothes”, said Kuvasila,

Only time will tell who will be next MP for Mwingi West.
