Ben Githae was Azimio die-hard during election period but now he has been given a job at the office of the president.
The Kikuyu gospel singer was handed the job shortly after declaring that he had quit Azimio.
Githae gave a passionate speech during the burial of Moses Kuria’s eldest sister which impressed William Ruto and his deputy Rigathi Gachagua.
The musician said he had quit Azimio and went on to praise Ruto’s adminstration, going as far as asking Gachagua to have a meeting with Kikuyu musicians who didn’t support Kenya Kwanza during campaign period.
“Saa tumerudi. Ata hao akina Sir James na akina Kegia wote si walikua huko lakini sa tunasema ulienda Nyanza ukasema ati 99 per cent hawakukupea ati njooni tusemezane and in your
house there are any mansions. Sisi ni 20 per cent ndo hatukukupea hio itakushinda tu sisi tusemezane? Wacha tukuje na sisi pia tusemezane.
“Wengine Wamuratha akaniuliza kwani hukuenda maandamano? Mimi nko hapa sahi huko nilihama sasa nko hapa.
“Riggy G si uliiita maMP wote wa Jubilee? Ata wasanii wake wale tulikua tumekuhama ata sisi tuite tuko na mambo mazuri ya mulima sasa hakuna wakati mwingine ambao mulima tutagawana, tutaenda pande moja sote,” Ben Githae said.
Gachagua told Ben Githae that he had forgiven him for supporting Azimio and asked Ngaruiya Junior to offer him a job in the office of the President.
“But since this is the time of forgiveness and embracing everybody, Ngaruiya si upatie Githae appointment. When can he come? Gachagua said.
It was agreed that Ben Githae would go to State House on Thursday January 26, 2023, to be give a job.
