Deputy Governor Ndambiri’s message to wife after he was caught pants down

Those people would have killed if didn’t comply with their orders and demands

In a statement read to the press on Wednesday, the Deputy Governor equally apologized to his wife and children and people of Kirinyaga for the nasty video which he blamed on extortionists.

“I have apologized to my wife of many years who has always been my solid rock. I have denigrated her womanhood and made her the laughing stock of many.

"I have sought her forgiveness and I will work hard to earn back her trust. I have let my children down. They have always looked up to me for inspiration and direction. I have caused them untold embarrassment and agony.

“I would like to take this opportunity to get ahead of the video and story in circulation. Right now what matters most is my family and my people of Kirinyaga who look up to me for guidance. To them, I say sorry,” he said.

He added: “I do not know the woman nor do I have a relationship with her, I was set up after I refused to part with Ksh.5 million."

Mr Ndambiri on Wednesday evening said that he was a victim of an extortion gang after a video of the politician, that has since gone viral, emerged on Tuesday evening.

In the video, Mr Ndambiri was seen being assaulted by unknown people alongside a woman who claimed she was married.

However, Mr Ndambiri said he was set up by a gang whose aim was to extort him, which he claimed has been targeting politicians.

“There are gangsters targeting politicians for purposes of extortion. I was set up by the gang took me through an agonising moment. And for the thugs, I say, your days are numbered,” he said.

He said that the gang would not deter his vision to serve his family and the people of Kirinyaga County.

However, it is still unclear when or the location where the video was filmed. Several leaders had condemned the video and called for the arrest of those who recorded it.

Kenya Film Classification Board Chief Executive Ezekiel Mutua said the recording was an invasion of privacy.
