Uhuru roots for graft-free lifestyles

By Fidelis Kabunyi | March 3rd 2021
President Uhuru Kenyatta lays a wreath at the graveside during the burial of Juja MP Francis Munyua Waititu at his home in Juja. 

President Uhuru Kenyatta yesterday urged leaders to aspire for a corruption-free lifestyle.

Speaking during the funeral of Juja MP Francis Waititu, the Head of State eulogised the late lawmaker as a hardworking, peaceful and generous leader who loathed corruption.

"Let each and everyone of you aspire for such a lifestyle in which you are known for working hard and never benefiting unjustly," Uhuru said during a service at the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) grounds.

He said Waititu was respectable, and a unifying servant leader who always supported government projects.

“It is very hard for a leader to be elected for a second term and especially in the larger Kiambu County, but Waititu was in his second term which means he had won the hearts of the people of Juja," he said.

The president further said the MP managed the Constituency Development Fund with integrity which saw the constituency ranked number one in Kiambu County and ninth countrywide.

“This is the kind of leadership we want,” he said.

President Kenyatta assured Juja residents that projects the late MP had initiated will be completed by the Jubilee administration.

“I can assure you that I will be back. We shall be back to launch water projects and issue title deeds,” he said.

Kiambu Governor James Nyoro eulogised the late MP as a passionate, humble and generous leader.

The late MP is survived by his widow and six children.
