Irungu Kang’ata Deserts Uhuru Camp For DP Ruto’s ‘Hustler Nation’ in Coded Message

Show me your friends and I will tell you who you are. Friends are known to influence the choices people make whether good or bad.

Murang’a Senator Irungu Kang’ata‘s best friends are Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro and Nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura. Both are now Tangatanga diehards, with Mwaura having joined the Deputy President William’s “Hustlers’ Nation” on New Year’s Eve.

On the same day Mwaura switched camps, Kang’ata wrote an acidic letter to President Uhuru Kenyatta, telling him that the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) would flop in the Mt Kenya region if his unscientific research was anything to go by.

After the letter was leaked to the mainstream media, the Senate Majority Whip switched off his phone, only turning it on momentarily to confirm that he was the author of the document via a social media post.

Ten days later, the Murang’a lawmaker is no longer afraid of make public appearances or even accept media interviews.

On Sunday, 10th January, he attended a church service at his grandparents’ rural home in Kiairathe, Murang’a County.

In a tweet, Kang’ata said he was very happy that the sermon was timely and had communicated the message in his explosive letter.

“Today, I attended the service at ACK church in Kiairathe Village, my grandparents’ home in Kangema constituency. The teachings were on John 8.32 – ‘The truth shall set you free'”, he wrote.

Netizens felt that this was the clearest indication yet that he was counting days before decamping to Tangatanga. Remember that in his letter he said that “Hustlers’ Nation was very popular among residents of Mt Kenya region”.

But the record will be set straight this evening, as the parliamentarian makes his first 2021 interview on Inooro TV.

According to sources, Kang’ata is keen to join Tangatanga because he thinks DP Ruto‘s side would bolster his bid to become the second Murang’a Governor.

In his political career, he has never lost any election. Kang’ata first became a councillor aged 22.
