Kiambu Woman Representative Gathoni Wa Muchomba's loyalty to the Hustler movement has been put to test following a demand by Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria.
Gathoni Wa Muchomba slapped with first demand after joining Tanga Tanga
No free rides
In a post welcoming the Woman Rep to the Tanga Tanga movement associated with deputy President William Ruto, MP Kuria asked Muchomba to give up her leadership position in Parliament.
The post recounted that Muchomba only got to take over the Vice-Chair position in the of Transport Committee after Kuria was kicked out for siding with DP Ruto.
Kuria reasoned that it would only be fair if the female MP stepped down and gave back the position to him, seeing that she is now a member of the "criminal" Tanga Tanga side.
"I fully welcome my good friend Gathoni wa Muchomba to the Hustler Nation. But the beginning of repentance is undoing certain things. I was robbed of my position as the Vice-Chair of Roads and Transport Committee and it was given to Wa Muchomba.
"My friend Gathoni. Do not deal with stolen goods. Its an offence in law and in the Bible. Return to me my Vice Chair seat since we are now both members of Tanga Tanga which according to Kieleweke is a criminal enterprise. Halafu sasa tutoke nyuma ya hema twende kazi ya Hustler," Kuria posted.
Muchomba abandons Kieleweke for Tanga Tanga
Last week Muchomba was pictured beside DP Ruto at his official Karen residence, in photos that were taken as an announcement that she had left the "Kieleweke" faction allied to President Uhuru Kenyatta to side with DP Ruto's Tanga Tanga.
Soon after the photos were posted online, members of the Tanga Tanga team congratulated Muchomba on the move, claiming that more of the President's foot soldiers were on their way out.
"Almost all Governors from Mt Kenya are Hustlers. We are in talks with several CSs, PSs and others with political ambitions. Most MPs expect like 5 from Mt Kenya are Hustlers. Expect Major Transfers by August. Intimidation has limits," claimed Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro.
Kandara MP Alice Wahome tweeted: "Hon Gathoni Wa Muchomba welcome to Hustler Nation."
Senator Millicent Omanga added: "Warmest welcome to the hustler nation Kiambu Woman MP Gathoni Wamuchomba."
Nyeri Town MP Ngunjiri Wambugu, an MP still allied to the President, noted that Muchomba's defection would cause a dent to the President's camp.
"I see that Gathoni Wamuchomba has left out team and will now be playing for William Ruto's brigade. Knowing her well, I am sure that she has thought this through and she believes she's doing the right thing. I don't agree with her, but this doesn't change the respect I have for her. I wish her well as we now engage from across each other, politically," he posted.
