In March 2009, Former President Mwai Kibaki, flanked by a mean-looking first lady Lucy Kibaki, called for an extraordinary press conference to deliver a very special message; he had only one wife.
The woman at the centre of the storm was Mary Wambui, who in 2013 replaced Kibaki as Othaya MP.
Wambui is in the limelight again after being appointed the chairperson of the National Employment Authority (NEA). Yes, when you think you have seen enough and nothing can surprise you, Jubilee government pulls a fast one on you.
But perhaps Wambui is the answer to the unemployment menace in Kenya. A woman who can ‘threaten’ the first lady is capable of pushing the youth beyond their comfort zones.
Also getting a state job is Edwin Abonyo, the widower of former Bomet governor Joyce Laboso. Our President is an understanding man, the Laboso family lost their breadwinner and Edwin needed a job to provide for the family.
Otherwise, kama hauna kazi kaa na mama yako.
