Life in jail humbled me, says Jubilee MP

22 June 2016, 07:24 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - Bahati Member of Parliament, Kimani Ngunjiri who was among the eight members of Parliament charged with hate speech last week now says that life at Pangani police station humbled him.

Ngunjiri said that his stay at the filthy police cells made him realize the value of treating all Kenyans equally and with respect regardless of their tribe, class or political affiliation.

Speaking in Nakuru Ngunjiri said that he learned a bitter lesson that he will never forget.

He said that he would never wish for any other Kenyan to undergo what he went through last week at the Pangani police station.

“What I saw and experienced at Pangani cells humbled me and made me to realize one thing, that we are all Kenyans regardless of where we come from or which political party we support,” he said.

“I have come to realize that we are all equal and a poor Kenyan in Kiambu or Nyeri has the same problems as a poor Kenyan in Kisumu and that we should not be divided as a nation because of politics,” he added.

Ngunjiri said that he respects all Kenyans and should not be viewed as a trouble maker or a tribalist.

“In my Constituency, you will find Kenyans from all walks of life and from all tribes and it cannot therefore be said that am a tribalist. I love and respect all Kenyans regardless of where they come from,” he said.
