The politician was recently heard bragging to locals that his rural home that he has money enough to boil a pot of githeri.

He is even warning those who are opposed to his newfound friendship with some powerful politician that they will be swept aside.

“Kama ni pesa mimi niko na pesa kam serikali….I can cook githeri using notes…” the politician boasted.
