Mwangi wa Iria: What a shame Mt Kenya people burning each other’s property (SHAME)

Former Murang’a Governor Mwangi Wa Iria has spoken out strongly against the recent attack on the farm of former President Uhuru Kenyatta by unidentified individuals. Wa Iria expressed his disappointment that members of the Mt Kenya community were inciting each other against their own. He likened the situation to the tale of the hare and the hyena, in which the two animals agreed to beat their wives, but the hare ended up inciting the hyena to beat his wife to death. Wa Iria admonished the Mt Kenya region for acting like the hyena in the tale.

The invasion of Kenyatta’s farm resulted in the theft of over a thousand hybrid sheep from the ranch farmhouse. Azimio la Umoja leader Raila Odinga visited the farm a day after the invasion and accused Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, national assembly majority leader Kimani Ichungwa, and Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro of being behind the attack.

Wa Iria pointed out that despite having different opinions during the general elections, many people who were previously opponents have since reconciled and become friends. He called it shameful that members of the same community were burning each other’s properties, emphasizing that if Kenyatta’s property is set on fire today, it could be someone else’s tomorrow. He expressed the community’s collective disapproval of such behavior.

Meanwhile, former President Kenyatta made his first public appearance after the incident by attending a mass service at St Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Nyali, Mombasa County on Sunday.
