Kenya: Aspirant Denies State House Link

OTHAYA parliamentary aspirant Gichuki Mugambi has denied claims he is a "State House" project. Speaking in Othaya town last weekend, he said he is a project of Othaya people.

He, however said it is not bad to be associated with State House, which is linked with many multi- million successful projects such the Sh31 billion Thika Superhighway and many others in the country.

"I'm not a State House project. I'm on my own. I'm a project of Othaya people. That is why you see me with Mama Mboga begging for votes," he said.

Mugambi who is also the chairman of Othaya Development Association was speaking at White House Hotel in Othaya town after meeting with local leaders who included sitting councilors led by Othaya Town Council chairman Maina Murachu, former councilors and aspiring ward rep candidates.

The aspirant had a busy day after holding several meetings at Chinga Community hall before heading to town. He lamented that there are many youths in the area who are jobless and so there was need to establish initiatives which will create job employment.

"I want to focus on basic industrialization and value addition in order to create jobs for our youths," he added. He said he will be committed in starting many projects in the area which will be beneficial to the people of Othaya.
