Stop Playing Politics With The Plight Of Needy People– Kentams Tells Politicians.

Kentams cleared the entire secondary fees for Lawrence Ngeki, a Form 3 student at Kinyoho Secondary School in Kandara. 
Thika Township MCA Kennedy Mwangi (Kentams) has pleaded his counterparts to stop playing politics with the plight of poor electorates and victims of life’s numerous misfortunes.

Speaking at the home of Teresiah Njeri in Gaichanjiru Village, Kandara Constituency of Murang’a County, the MCA said playing politics with the lives of people was immoral and wrong before God.

“It is very immoral for a leader to stand on the podium and promise heavens to a poor widow like Teresiah knowing very well that they will do nothing for them. I understand that at this campaign period, politicians will pledge anything in the name of winning the hearts of the electorate, but it isn’t right even before God to lie and give fake promises to such a person,” said Kentams.

The MCA was reacting to several unfulfilled promises made by Thika politicians during the burial of The Late Peter Kamande Ngeki who passed on early this year after short illness. Kamande was a tuktuk operator in Thika Town.

Kentams added that this trend (of fake promises) was very well replicated in office by majority of these leaders whenever they achieved their goal for election.

“I am here today to fulfil what I promised this family during the burial of Peter. I have already cleared the entire secondary school fees for their son as promised and I will keep checking on his progress just in case he needs my attention. So, whoever promised to help this family in one way or another should do so considering that Teresiah is jobless and has other children to take care of,” he said.

The MCA has cleared the entire school fees of Lawrence Ngeki, a Form 3 student at Kinyoho Secondary School in Kandara.

Teresiah, who is a mother of three, cannot go to seek employment as one of her sons is disabled and fully dependent on her for even the most basic chores. She has attempted on various occasions to enroll him into a special school but all her efforts have been in vain due to financial constraints.

According to her, she has visited various offices within Murang’a County seeking for help but despite the fact that both the national and county governments have a kitty set aside to cater for persons living with disabilities.

“I have visited the offices of the Department of Gender and Social Development in Murang’a and also the Murang’a County Government offices seeking for help but nothing has been forthcoming. I am now appealing for assistance from any quarters to help me get my son enrolled in a special school. With him sitting at home, I am unable to do anything or go anywhere, something that is making it very difficult for me to fend my family,” said Teresiah.


However, Teresiah thanked Hon. Kentams for his gesture adding that her burden to pay her son’s school fees was now off her back.
