POWER-HUNGRY NYERI GOVERNOR SHAMED AGAIN FOR PULLING CHEAP PUBLICITY STUNT; ERECTING A MASSIVE BILLBOARD SHOWING HIS “SUCCESS,” BUIDING A SINGLE PIT LATRINE IN A NYERI-BASED PRE-SCHOOL
Nyeri County boss Governor Mutahi Kahiga has received a backlash from Nyeri residents once more after his attention-craving move- erecting a humongous billboard showing his “achievement” after building a single pit latrine at Kahara in a pre-school facility.
This criticism comes barely two months after Governor Mutahi Kahiga received bashing from Nyeri residents and politicians for printing his name and portrait on sanitizers donated by a sugar company.

NYERI GOVERNOR MUTAHI KAHIGA ERECTS HUMONGOUS BILLBOARD IN HIS PRAISE FOR BUILDING A SINGLE PIT LATRINE
Nyeri County Boss has this time taken his attention-craving appetite a notch higher after he erected a billboard in his praise after building a single latrine.
His move has however boomeranged after Nyeri county residents came out to criticize his move describing it as a waste of resources.
Most of the residents feel that building a single, tiny toilet is not good enough. There are better things that the Governor can do instead of craving attention unnecessarily especially during these corona times.
“This is a waste of money, why should he erect such a huge billboard over a non-issue?” queried one of the agitated residents.
Last time, the governor was entangled in yet another drama after he branded donated sanitizers in his name. However, he was smart enough to defend himself saying that he had received overwhelming intelligence that some people wanted to resell the sanitizers once the county government released them.
The punch line is, “did the Governor receive overwhelming intelligence again that some people were planning to steal his thunder by claiming his single, tiny toilet?
ATTENTION-CRAVING NYERI GOVERNOR MUTAHI KAHIGA BASHED FOR BRANDING DONATED SANITIZERS
In April 2020, Governor Kahiga was shamed after details emerged showing that he had branded donated hand sanitizers.
As if branding the donor-funded sanitizers was not enough, the Governor went ahead to put his portrait on them.
“It is wrong for our governor to imply through labeling the donation with his portrait that what the residents are using comes from him directly yet we all know that it is a donation from a well-wisher. Why politick during hard times?” wrote one resident.
A WASTE OF MONEY
Other residents said that the money used to print the labels and branding the repackaged bottles should have been used to buy more hand sanitizers for the poor or personal protective equipment for nurses and other medical personnel on the frontline.
Kahiga however dismissed his critics as busybodies who are only good at ballooning simple trivial matters.
Speaking while handing part of the labeled donation to Nyeri Town MP Wambugu Ngunjiri for distribution, Wahiga said that minimal resources were used to repackage and brand the donor-funded sanitizers.
“It is high time we stop concentrating on petty issues. I will be able to distribute more sanitizers this way. The reason why I put my portrait is due to the fact that we had intelligence that some people wanted to resell the sanitizers once we release them,” said the Governor in his defense.
