Wainaina announces plan to revolutionise Thika’s economy once elected.

Independent candidate Eng. Patrick Wainaina Wa Jungle has promised Thika Town constituents that, if elected as their next MP, he will put in place some radical and ambitious plans that will take the constituency back its heydays of the early 80s and mid-90s.

Speaking at Kimuchu Estate after donating helmets and reflectors to about 200 bodaboda riders, Wainaina said that the area had all it takes to be a world-class commercial and investment hub only that it lacked leaders to guide its people to unlock their potential.

“My dream is to have to see Thika begin to compete with other cities in the world in terms of job and wealth creation. If we can assist young people like these bodaboda riders to invest and increase their income, we will help grow our economy and attract massive external investments into our town. I believe that is the future,” said Wainaina.

He said that he was so passionate in the development of infrastructure such as good roads and electricity because they acted as catalysts to economic growth and improvement of security.

“I want to set some precedence in this region where leaders compete to sell development agenda and programmes that empower Wanjiku. I want my opponents to gaze in awe when they observe Thika from its outskirts. I want its people to get empowered so as to free them from political manipulation. That’s my dream and I believe it’s your dream too,” he told Kiganjo residents.

The business magnate said it was quite unfortunate that some of his competitors were sabotaging his projects regardless of the fact that they were all meant for the good of the same people they intended to lead. This, he added, was a clear indication that they preferred to ride on the people’s predicaments for political expediency.

“For a good tree does not bear bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. For every tree is known by its own. We shall be judged by our fruits. What moral authority therefore does one have to ask for reelection if they didn’t do anything during their tenure in office?” asked Wainaina, adding that he would no longer take lying down as his competitor sent goons to destroy his projects.

He distanced himself from any association with any of the local leaders pointing out that as an independent candidate, he had an independent mind devoid of anyone’s manipulation.

“I am vying as an independent candidate and am not campaigning for anyone here. In fact, I am only championing for the reelection of President Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto. The rest should sell their candidature in their own capacity,” he said.

However, he promised to work with all those leaders who will be voted into office once he wins the Thika Parliamentary seat.
