On February 11, Tharaka Nithi governor Muthomi Njuki came under heavy attack from angry women who removed their underwears and dumped them outside Njuki’s office, accusing him of insulting and demeaning womenfolk from his county.
The women from Tharaka, Maara and Chuka/Igambang’ombe wanted the governor to
The women from Tharaka, Maara and Chuka/Igambang’ombe wanted the governor to apologise for his comments or face dire consequences.
Among other allegations, the governor was being accused of asking women to look for sponsors to finance beauty contests because the county had no funds for models to catwalk in front of Members of County Assembly.
Immediately after the incidence, the chairman of Njuri Ncheke Council of Elders Kang’ori Thaara wanted Governor Muthomi Njuki to cleanse himself from a ‘curse’ he acquired after women dumped their panties outside his office.
according to Njuri Ncheke, a curse from women is usually very bad and, “If it’s true that women undressed due to anger as I am getting it, I am advising our governor to offer a goat or a bull for sacrifice as per the Ameru traditions.
“This is the only way he can escape the wrath of those women drawn from different clans in the County,” he said.
However, on his side, Njuki rubbished the claims; calling it a ploy by his political enemies to distract him from working for the people.
Speaking on Monday at WERU PCEA church in Chuka/Igambang’ombe, Mr. Njuki said the elders and the women were being used by his political rivals to intimidate him and disrupt his work. He said that he will never bow to their demands under any circumstance!
But Njuri Ncheke County chapter chairman, Kangori M’Thaara, insists that if not cleansed, Mr Njuki’s government was likely to face a lot of misfortunes.
