Let’s end this endless streak of politics and work for the people – Wainaina.

Thika Town MP Eng. Patrick Wainaina Wa Jungle.
Thika Town MP Eng. Patrick Wainaina has urged fellow party members and especially those from the Mt Kenya Region to stop politicking and instead work for the people.

Speaking after launching the constituency self-help groups’ capacity building programme at the Thika Community Hall, Wainaina said Mt. Kenya leaders were expending their energy on scolding each other and discussing the 2022 alignments instead of working for the electorate who got them into power.

He reminded those going round soliciting for a 2022 regional kingpin that the nation was still nursing the wounds of an extended political quagmire and was crying for healing in the aftermath of a disruptive general election that deeply polarised the nation and sharply divided Kenyans along ethnic lines.

“We are just recovering from a gruesome political quagmire that almost brought this country to its knees. It is wrong to keep the country in an endless campaign mood and that is why I am saying that this talk (about a 2022 Mt. Kenya political kingpin) is premature and ill-timed,” said Wainaina.

The legislator appealed to his colleagues to instead grant President Uhuru Kenyatta some peace of mind to be able to reconstitute his government and roll out his agenda for his final term in office.

“As a country we have lost a lot of time and we can’t manage to waste another minute through the same. Yes, we may have our political differences but we also have individual and collective dreams of prosperity for our futures and our country. Let’s focus on the many aspects that unite us and let’s work for the people who elected us,” he said.

Noting that there is a time for everything, Wainaina asked Kenyans to rally their support behind the president and his deputy William Ruto as they guided the country to higher heights.

During the workshop organised by the Jungle Foundation Uwezo Team (Economic Empowerment) in conjunction with Thika West Social Development Officer Madam Constance Ngoa, participants were taught how to run their entities professionally for economic empowerment of both individual members and as a group.

The forum which attracted about 200 group leaders and interested stakeholders from Township Ward, aimed to promote the full involvement of the youth, women, persons living with disabilities and small-scale traders in every aspect of socio-economic growth and development in Thika Constituency.  

The presentation served as a refresher training session for the existing groups. Among the topics delivered at the workshop session were aimed at imparting entrepreneurial skills, promoting economic empowerment and minimising social barriers that affect productivity and success of self-help groups in sustainable livelihood activities.

The MP urged the groups to take full advantages of the opportunities available in the existing national and county government programmes such as the UWEZO Fund and the Youth and Women Development Funds. 

He promised to initiate training on public procurement for all the groups within the constituency to enable them take full advantage of the Government procurement opportunities.
