Youths from Kibung’a have expressed their anger over the choice of words that the county boss Muthomi Njuki is using in his public rallies which they term as insults to Tharaka people.
Speaking at Kibung’a D.O’S grounds after the governor’s event hosted at the same venue, the youths said it is the high time the county boss stops insulting locals by their mothers which they say it is taken as being disrespectful calling one by their mothers.
“It is very wrong when the top man in the county can dare insult people by their mothers which is going against all community odds and thus showing how disrespectful the governor is to our mothers who he has insulted severally,’’ said a youth who sought anonymity.
The group of the young people were responding to earlier sentiments from the governor that his critics ought to shun from criticizing him for dishing out handouts in his meetings since the cash does not belong to their mothers.
“I am worried by my opponents who are always talking when I dish out handouts which is drawn from my personal cash, and tend to wonder what would be their reactions if I am giving out cash belonging to their mothers,’’ Njuki paused.
This is not the first time Njuki is finding himself in such controversy. It will be remembered that upon rising into power, Njuki massively laid off county employees whom he termed as ghost workers and asked them to demand pays from their mothers and since then he has been on records using the term.
Now the youths want him revert from hurling insults at residents using their mothers which is quite disrespectful according to Tharaka culture.
