Kibaki is part of my family: Wambui says

16 November 2015, 09:48 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Othaya MP, Mary Wambui has asserted that former President Mwai Kibaki is part of her family.

Speaking at Gatugi PCEA church during the burial of her elder sister, Ann Wakarima Wambugu, Wambui said Kibaki is a member of the family as he asked him to pray for the bereaved children.

During the funeral service, Kibaki was seated next to Wambui in the family tent.

Several years ago, Kibaki while in State House dismissed reports that Wambui was his second wife.

“Kibaki is here today because he is one of us in our family. He should pray for children of the deceased because he is no longer in active politics,” said Wambui before inviting the former head of state to address the mourners.

In his address, Kibaki avoided commenting on the matter but said he was mourning the loss of 'a close friend.'

He further asked Kenyans to seek God’s intervention in challenges facing the country.

“God will help Kenya if you believe and pray Him. Also pray for your leaders so that they can perform and execute their duties well. Assist even those who hate you, not just your friends,” said Kabaki in Kikuyu.

The late Wakarima, 75, was Councillor in Othaya for two terms and passed away last week at Nairobi Hospital following a long illness.

She was one of those who campaigned for Kibaki and helped him retain Othaya parliamentary seat for 30 years.

The funeral service was also attended by Nyeri Senator Mutahi Kagwe, Juja MP Francis Munyua, Nyeri town MP Esther Murugi, former Principal Secretary Mutea Iringo and suspended Cabinet Secretary Michael Kamau.
