Ben Githae, a vernacular singer has been offered a job at the office of the President moments after declaring that he had ditched Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance.
While addressing mourners on Monday, January 23, 2023, in Gatundu during the burial of Pauline Nyokabi the elder sister to Cabinet Secretary (CS) for Investments, Trade and Industry Moses Kuria, Githae announced he was now supporting the Kenya Kwanza administration.
Ben Githae said: “Saa tumerudi. Ata hao akina Sir James na akina Kegia wote si walikua huko lakini sa tunasema ulienda Nyanza ukasema ati 99 per cent hawakukupea ati njooni tusemezane and in your house there are any mansions. Sisi ni 20 per cent ndo hatukukupea hio itakushinda tu sisi tusemezane? Wacha tukuje na sisi pia tusemezane.”
The musician revealed to mourners that he skipped Azimio’s Kamkunji rally because he had changed sides and that he was now fully supporting the government.
“Wengine Wamuratha akaniuliza kwani hukuenda maandamano? Mimi nko hapa sahi huko nilihama sasa nko hapa,” Githae said.
Githae further asked Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua to convene a meeting with all musicians from Mt Kenya who didn’t support Kenya Kwanza during the campaign period.
