Wamb­ora’s wife urges vot­ers to back hus­band

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Eastern -

Embu Gov­er­nor Martin Wamb­ora’s wife, Tere­sia, has gone on the of­fen­sive to cam­paign vig­or­ously for her hus­band’s re-elec­tion.

She had not been in the lime­light, but of late been ac­com­pa­ny­ing the gov­er­nor to al­most ev­ery meet­ing. Tere­sia has urged res­i­dents to dis­re­gard Wamb­ora’s ri­vals be­cause they have noth­ing to of­fer.

Last Fri­day, she ac­com­pa­nied her hus­band on a day-long tour of the county. They vis­ited Kivuria Pri­mary School, Si­ak­ago town and Kir­i­tiri town.

Tere­sia thanked res­i­dents for their prayers dur­ing her hus­band’s try­ing mo­ments, re­fer­ring to his im­peach­ment by the county assem­bly. She said Wamb­ora is not a master of con­fronta­tional pol­i­tics, but a fo­cused leader who de­liv­ers on his prom­ises. She ac­cused some of her hus­band’s ri­vals of be­ing power-hun­gry.

Tere­sia blamed them for the gov­er­nor’s im­peach­ment. She urged vot­ers to elect lead­ers who have their in­ter­ests at heart, not self­ish in­di­vid­u­als. “The gov­er­nor does not talk much. He is in­ter­ested in ac­tion and some­times for­gets to seek votes for him­self,” Tere­sia said, urg­ing women and youths to sup­port Wamb­ora.
