What is the criteria used to select those awarded State commendations? What achievements should one have in order to receive such an accolade? What do the people awarding look at before making such crucial recommendations?  A section of Kenyans believe Chief Kariuki’s should be awarded not only for saving lives but also for having his people’s interest at heart.

Chief Francis Kariuki is on the limelight once again for saving lives in Umoja area in Nakuru.

The Chief’s tweet read; “Kwa kihanda nyumbani kuna moto kubwa sana majirani saidieni tafadhali. Pale karibu umoja 2”
