SPEAKER BACKS MP MBARIRE
Last month, National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi hosted a clan of the Mbeere to drum up support for Runyenjes MP Cecily Mbarire for Embu governor. Mbarire is engaged in a bitter campaign against Embu Governor Martin Wambora and Senator Lenny Kivuti. She and Kivuti recently exchanged bitter words at a public event, in which she tried to snatch the microphone from the senator. Muturi and Kivuti come from the Mbeere tribe.
