Deputy President William Ruto made a stop over in Nyeri Town during his tour of the region on Friday, October 30.

The Jubilee Party deputy leader was in a company of about 20 loyal legislators both from the Mt Kenya region and beyond.

Ruto first toured Kangema constituency where he presided over a youth empowerment initiative and donated motor bicycle to area boda boda riders.

His entourage later on snaked through the neigbouring Mathioya constituency before heading to Nyeri town where his supporters were gathered awaited his address.

Unwanted audience

Interestingly, his fiercest critic and Nyeri Township lawmaker Ngunjiri Wambugu was somewhere within the crowd where he apparently followed DP’s speeches.

Ngunjiri, the man behind Kieleweke phrase which is against Ruto’s presidential bid, was dressed in all black except his shiny brown leather shoes.

It was perhaps difficult to spot him in the sea of humanity.

However, it did not take long before the deputy president was notified of his presence and quickly asked him to speak, but first he had to ask for permission from his audience.

“I am informed mheshimiwa Ngunjiri is here with us. Mheshimiwa Ngunjiri unataka kuongea ama bado? Wananchi wamekata sasa shauri yako. (Do you want to speak? The people have refused, it is now upon you),” he said amidst boos and heckling from the crowd.

While that was happening, the lawmaker just watched pensively as the charged crowd shouted and chanted no no no, to express their disapproval.

Downplay

Ngunjiri later in the day downplayed the incident but warned Tanga Tanga loyalists the ground will get harder in the coming days.

He also wondered why the deputy president and his team had to visit his constituency only to insult him.

“It took over 10 MPs and a whole deputy president to come and insult me in Nyeri Town – but yet we stand. Continue selling our people for food. We will teach all of you a lesson. It’s just began. Ground will get harder,” he said.

This was the second time the legislator was caught up in an awkward position with Ruto team.

In August 2019, a meeting that had been organised by Ruto’s political allies in Nyeri county ended prematurely after he and followers stormed the event.

The drama escalated and elderly women who were caught up in the melee as police officers and goons engage in running battles.

Things took an ugly turn when Nyeri Woman Representative Nyeri Woman Representative Rahab Mukami took to the podium.

Even though he has since apologised, Wambugu defended his action and maintained his constituency is a no-go zone for politicians seeking to advance 2022 succession talks.

“I’m sorry, but 2022 politics in Nyeri constituency at this time is a no,” he insisted.

How I made my first million

At what age did you make your first million? 

I was 19.

How did you make it? 

I was running a creative design and printing agency. I bid for and won an order to design and print marketing materials for a global NGO which has offices in Kenya.

How did you spend or invest it? 

I re-invested most of it into the business by buying more machinery to reduce costs associated with outsourcing. I also set up a new business with a friend – a movie shop in Nairobi CBD.

The biggest money mistake you have ever made? 

Setting up the movie shop was the greatest money mistake – but I picked up two of the greatest business lessons. One, to never divest too early, and only invest in a business you understand well.

What is the best investment you have ever made?

 I would say investing in myself and in my exposure through travel. Travel has made me see endless possibilities for innovating new products, business models and solutions in the African market. A combination of the international exposure and strong local market understanding is priceless.

What is the worst purchase you have ever made? 

The movie shop. I bought a ready business that I did not understand and it went crumbling down. We eventually closed it a few months later.

If you had a spare million or two, where would you invest it right now?

I would invest it in my current business – a software technology company. This is because I believe the business has potential to become a great success.

What is the biggest money lesson you have learnt about growing it and making it work for you? 

Initially, we all have to work for money. However, I have learnt that the wealthy person has learnt how to make money work for them, through consistently investing what one earns.

Where do you learn about finances? 

I read a lot of books about real success stories from entrepreneurs because I believe entrepreneurship is a great way to create wealth, while creating value in the society. I also stay curious to learn about different investment vehicles because I know I shouldn’t put all my eggs in one basket.

Any financial myths you think should be busted? 

Money is not the root of all evil; greed may be. Money is a good thing because it can create freedom and prosperity, if well spent.

What two personal finance rules do you follow? 

Live within your means; and work to make money as a tool to accomplish real goals. Real goals are not just about making “enough” money, because it is almost impossible to define “enough.”

Investing or saving…Which one carries more weight?

Investing. However, they go hand to hand as saving to invest is acceptable.

One can get rich easily… but how does one stay rich? 

By constantly making calculated investment risks, and always striving to be wealthy, not rich.

Decomposing bodies of a couple that has been missing for more than a week were found in their house in Laini centre off the Nairobi-Nakuru highway, yesterday.

A foul smell emanating from the house of the 72-year-old-man and his wife, 62, led to their recovery. Police have launched investigations into the incident.

There were conflicting reports about the deaths with some claiming that the two were murdered while others suspected that they could have died of carbon monoxide emitted from a jiko.

Police declined to give names of the deceased until the next of kin are informed. Emotions ran high as locals viewed the bodies.

A village elder, Moses Mwathi, revealed that the couple was working in a quarry before they went missing.

Mwathi said neighbours thought that they had travelled to their rural home but got concerned after a foul smell started emanating from their house.

“On checking they noticed that the house was locked from inside and the bodies could be seen lying on their bed,” he said.

Police gained access into the house after breaking the door. The bodies were taken to the mortuary

Naivasha OCPD Samuel Waweru said initial investigations pointed to carbon monoxide poisoning from a jiko.

“We can’t, however, rule out murder at this moment and only a post-mortem examination will establish the real cause of the death,” said the police boss.

And in the nearby Kinungi village, a 35-year-old farmworker committed suicide by hanging himself in a house.

The body was found by his employer before police were called in. Jim Kimani, a friend to the deceased, said he was in low spirits over debts.

“He claimed that some people he owed money were harassing him but we never thought that he would commit suicide,” Kimani said.
