Deal of the day

MS Fostina Ogake, his grandmother,  challenged other politicians to give hands to vulnerable families. “This is the strange thing we have witnessed from a politician,” Ms Ogake said. She challenged other politicians to emulate examples from Mr Onkaki who has the virtues of a good leader. She stated that their condition is going to change after they got a new three-bedroom house.

The residents applauded Mr Onkaki for his generosity and challenged themselves to vote for leaders who support change, growth and development. He challenged the electorates to choose visionary leaders.

“I know we are in the electioneering period, let’s not allow some politicians to come up with empty promises and vote wisely,” Mr Onkaki said.

He faulted some leaders for engaging in empty political rhetoric and no track records instead of addressing pertinent issues affecting the public. Moreover, Mr Ongaki asked Kenyans to elect people who can stand for the truth and dedicate their time to serve Kenyans and their challenges.

According to him, most people languish from poverty due to unemployment leading to the vulnerable ones not affording even the basic needs.

“It really hurts me some section of politicians would pledge to make empty promises to the innocent electorates, after they are elected, they don’t fulfil such promises, “he said. Mr Onkaki is going to vie for a parliamentary seat in Kitutu Chache South. He said that if elected he is going to support groups, improve road networks, among other projects.

Those who are in the race for the Kitutu Chache South Parliamentary seat are Pius Abuki, Andrew Maubi, Samuel Omwando, and Youth Secretary in the Office of the Deputy President Anthony Kibagendi among others.

Coast Regional Commissioner (RC) Mr. John Elungata has eulogized late president Emilio Stanley Mwai Kibaki saying it is a big loss not only to his family, but to the entire Country.

 

Leading the regions public service officers, Mr. Elungata described President Kibaki as a selfless man who strived to develop the country during his ten year of leadership.

 

President Kibaki is the third President of Kenya since December 2002 up to April 2013. He had previously served as the fourth Vice-President of Kenya for ten years from 1978 to 1988 under President Daniel arap Moi among various cabinet positions he served. He was also the leader of opposition during the clamour for multi-party politics in Kenya, that saw the repealing of section 2A of the old Kenyan Constitution.

 

He would later lead Kenya in the promulgation of the Constitution 2010, after a defeat in a constitutional change referendum in 2005. He is credited with the growth of Kenya’s economy during his tenure as the last president who served under the old constitution.

 

Commissioner Elungata in his condolence message said President Kibaki will be remembered as a kind, warm and friendly politician who was a father figure to many Kenyans

 

 

After signing a condolence book at Coast Regional Headquarters (Uhuru na Kazi building) in Mombasa on Tuesday, April 26, 2022, the Regional Commissioner described President Kibaki’s tenure as head of state as the ‘golden decade’ for Kenya, when the country witnessed massive unparalleled socio-economic development.

 

 

 

He said similar condolence books has been opened in the coastal counties of Kwale, Kilifi, Lamu, Taita Taveta and Tana River and urged the public to sign them in his remembrance.

 

 

While addressing the press, he used the opportunity to encourage coastal residents to find time and sign the book as a sign of respect to the former President who passed on at the age of 90.

 

Flanked by Mombasa County Commissioner John Otieno, the RC said he frequently interacted with the former president while serving as a District Commissioner in Kibwezi district.

 

“He looked for positives in people rather than their weaknesses and avoided rumours like the plague. He always opted for friendship as opposed to confrontational politics in all his dealings,” said Elungata.

 

He asked all civil servants and residents to come forward and pay their last respects as a sign of appreciation to the good leadership and sacrifice Kibaki made to our nation. He also noted that President Kibaki inspired many people to forgive, reconcile and be tolerant of each other regardless of the situation.

 

Other leaders from the coast region who eulogized the departed President are Imtiaz Sayani, Mombasa business leader and philanthropist , the Abagusii community chairman Dickson Kibagendi and Coast GEMA community Chairman Chrispus waithaka.

 

They all praised the late Mwai Kibaki saying he left a long-lasting legacy ranging from a new constitution, a revived economy, democracy and free primary education amongst other things.
