A member of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s inner circle is causing a stir in his home-turf. This is after the man embarked on a drive to empower musicians from his political backyard. 

Sources have told The Grapevine that the Cabinet Secretary plans to award some of them with a Sh1 million Christmas gift each.

Many people, especially those in the political scene are questioning his motive, with some viewing it as a plot to woo the artistes to his side as a way of reviving his dwindling political career. 

Musicians in the community the official comes from play a big role in politics, those whose names are mentioned and praised in songs get an easy time when they seek to be elected. 

It will be interesting to see what criteria will be used to single out the stars that will be awarded the mouth-watering gift.
