CS Moses Kuria comes to Aid of ‘Forgotten’ Mama Mboga from Kiambu who helped in UDA campaigns.

Public Service Cabinet Secretary (CS) Moses Kuria has extended assistance to Pauline Njoroge, affectionately known as ‘Mama Mboga,’ who played a significant role during the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) campaigns but found herself in distressing circumstances.

CS Kuria’s commitment came following his attendance at the funeral of Pauline’s only son in Githunguri, Kiambu County, where he expressed condolences for her loss. The deceased, Alex Mbugua Waithira, aged 51, left behind a grieving mother and three children.

Expressing his solidarity, Kuria pledged to provide support for the education and empowerment of Pauline’s grandchildren, acknowledging her pivotal role in the 2022 election campaigns.

However, tensions arose during the funeral when Member of Parliament (MP) Gathoni Wamuchomba criticized CS Kuria and other UDA leaders for allegedly neglecting Pauline Njoroge after utilizing her services during the campaigns.

Wamuchomba accused her colleagues of exploiting Pauline’s support without fulfilling promises made to her. She particularly lamented the lack of assistance in restocking Pauline’s business, despite her significant contributions during the campaigns.

Furthermore, Wamuchomba highlighted the disparity between the lavish lifestyles of government officials and the struggles faced by ordinary citizens, drawing attention to the hypocrisy of politicians who only offer support when it suits them politically.

Recently, Wamuchomba initiated a political movement named ‘Team Kusikiza Ground,’ in collaboration with Babu Owino from Embakasi East and other leaders from the ODM party, signaling potential shifts in political alliances and strategies.
