Kuvasila Launches Coup on Kitungi as People’s Anger Surges Against the Incumbent
In what can only be described as a ruthless yet bloodless coup against lackluster Mwingi West MP Benard Kitungi, an aspirant angling to replace the accidental legislator has kicked off life changing, people oriented projects meant to root out the MP and his cronies.
Patrick Koki Musau, fondly known as Kuvasila in the constituency due to his philanthropic character, is on a mission to feed sections of his would-be constituents who have been hard hit by drought and hunger. This follows a massive crop failure in the last season.
On Sunday, Kuvasila and a team of about 300 Asians of Kenyan descent donated foodstuffs worthy Sh20 million to over 10, 000 families at the populous Kiomo/ Kyethani ward whose residents vowed to vote in the futuristic leader.
There were attempts however to make the ‘feed the hungry’ event abort after the area MP tried in vain to crush it. Our insiders in Kitungi’s withering camp informed PashaOnline that the MP approached the Wahindis and badmouthed the aspirant in the hope that the event will be cancelled.
When that did not bear fruit, the MP turned into a scaremonger. “He told the Asians that the area was a bandit zone and that their security was not guaranteed. He even went further to warn that giant man-eating crocodiles from the nearby River Tana venture out and would not hesitate to make the Asians their deserved meal,” reported our insider.
However, all these laughable shenanigans to deny locals food failed flat when Koki and his team honored their pledge and made a triumphal entry in the area where they were received with song, dance and love.
The accidental MP and his surrogates feared that the event would tip scales in favor of the maverick Kuvasila which indeed turned out to be the case. The residents swore to support the aspirant to the last man in August 2017 polls.
The residents cursed Kitungi and warned that he should never venture in their area. The MP is also facing accusation of siphoning millions of CDF money on Kyamboo ghost projects.
After receiving her bundle of foodstuffs which included a 5-kilogram pack of unga, sugar, rice, salt, cooking oil and other edibles, meant to last an average family for 10 days, an exited Dorcas Kathumo, 68, remarked: “Mwanake usu ukwitwa Kuvasila ngai namuathime vyu vyu vyu!”
Her neighbor Anna Mwathi joined in the celebrations and said Kitungi’s fate had been sealed.
“How dare can he attempt to stop such a noble cause? May he fall like the Tower of Babel,” Mwathi said.
To signify his acceptance by the community, Kuvasila was crowned as a Kamba elder, complete with a bow and arrows as a mark of defending the suffering constituents. The angry residents accused Kitungi of being a runaway MP, who is detached and perennially absent both in the constituency and in bunge.
When he rose to speak, Kuvasila, a re-known orator with artistic mastery of humor poured his heart out for his constituents. He accused Kitungi of running curelessly scared like a dik dik caught up in car headlights
“That was really sad and cheap on his part. We need leaders who can go an extra mile to help their people. I am that leader and these people’s problems are my problems. Together we will address them,” Kuvasila stated as an aged woman jerked forward and hugged him as if her life depended on it.
The residents dismissed the other contestants for the seat including the MP as jokers and pretenders to the throne and warned that they should not waste their time and energy.
“We have identified our son. He is caring, close and innovative. Let the other job seekers hold their horses or look elsewhere,” warned Job Nzau, an elder, emphasizing his point with a firm fist.
Kuvasila said as an MP, his mission will be to eliminate poverty amongst the people as well as create jobs and job opportunities for young people in order for them to be self-reliant.
Noting that the food donation was a stop gap measure in the face of ravaging drought, Kuvasila stated that he had written to different organizations seeking their support to provide water to the constituents.
“In one of my proposals, water from Tana River will be pumped to a giant tank placed strategically at Kakongo market, where it will be treated for domestic use with another outlet being pumped directly to farmers for irrigation farming,” he noted as people gave a thunderous applause while chanting “Mutongoi! Mutongoi.”
Kuvasila’s meteoric rise can only mean one thing to MP Kitungi and the other cable of joking pretenders; DOOM!
