STATEMENT BY HIS EXCELLENCY THE DEPUTY GOVERNOR OF KIRINYAGA.
25th April 2018,
Members of the press, Starboy Media, ladies and gentlemen;
The events of the last few days are the least of what I expected would be trending in Kenya, but with technology anything is possible. An amalgamation of my selfishness, pride, greed, and ego have caused an untold embarrassment and shame to so many people. I am terribly sorry.
The first thing I did after waking up this morning was to pray to the almighty God to give me the wisdom to own up to my mistakes and misdeeds. What I have now is a broken and contrite spirit. I have apologized to my wife of many years who has always been my solid rock. I have denigrated her womanhood and made her the laughing stock of many. I have sought her forgiveness and I will work hard to earn back her trust. I have let my children down. They have always looked up to me for inspiration and direction . I have caused them untold embarrassment and agony. I am sorry.
A famed philosopher once said that guilt, just like salvation, is individual. This is my cross and I beseech my supporters to allow me the latitude to carry it as it should be. This is not the time to engage in acts of mudslinging or concocting conspiracy theories. I made a mistake. I want to right that wrong in a way that heals all the hurt caused. All that I need from you is to pray for me; that God strengthens my resolve to be a better man, husband, father; to be an effective deputy governor and to inspire the youth.
There is more to be done to make Kirinyaga the envy of other counties. The winds from our forefathers are blowing toward Kirinyaga. I admit, my actions have watered down your faith in me. Forgive me. I will endeavor to give unwavering support to Governor Ann Waiguru as we work to keep the promises we made in our manifesto.
Let us make Kirinyaga great again and focus on the President’s Big Four Legacy agenda.
