MCA blames “Spirit of Confusion” for loss of Wambora's Speech

 There was a light moment as Embu Ward Representatives attributed the misplacement of the official Speech by Council of Governor’s Chairman Martin Wambora to campaign fatigue.

Minority Leader Masters Mwaniki tickled the entire County Assembly when he claimed that a certain “Spirit of Confusion” had engulfed politicians across the country after Wambora, who is also the Governor for Embu County read the wrong speech and failed to trace the correct one during a Universal Health Coverage event at Port Reitz in Mombasa, which was attended by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Mwaniki concurred with Deputy Speaker Steve Simba (MCA Runyenjes Central) who said that Governor Wambora was only human to forget where he had placed his speech for the event. However, the Kiambere Ward Rep opined that it was a “Spirit” that had disorganised the CoG Chairman’s mind, making him leave his speech in Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe’s official car.


The MCA further stated that he was watching Majority Leader Michael Kariuki keenly to ensure that he still had the Order Paper containing the Motion he was moving on the floor of the House at hand all through his contribution time. Mwaniki said politicians currently had too much going on in their minds, which made them susceptible to temporary amnesia.

On his part, Muminji MCA Newton Kariuki observed that a bout of amnesia had hit Wambora after his tenure at the helm of the Governors’ Council was extended by a few months. Kariuki who is a renowned Benga artiste disclosed that he also forgets lyrics to some of his songs when he is exhausted, but said the circumstances surrounding the loss of the Governor’s speech seemed “funny”.

Meanwhile, Ruguru-Ngandori MCA Muturi Mwombo has challenged his counterparts to accept the verdict of the electorate after the August 9th General Election. Muturi said a win was not guaranteed for the elected leaders who would be seeking to recapture their seats. He wished his colleagues well but reminded them that there was life after politics.

Nthawa MCA Nathan Mwari and Nominated Ward Rep Edna Muisyo took turns to wish Simba well in his endeavour to represent the people of Runyenjes Constituency at the National Assembly. The duo expressed courage in their colleague, saying he was up to the task after serving ten years as MCA, part of which saw him steer Legislative business as Deputy Speaker.

The Ward Reps spoke at the County Assembly Chambers during the official reopening of the Assembly for the fifth and last session after a two-month recess.
