Man charged for calling MP Cecily Mbarire a prostitute
In June 2015, a man charged in Embu for calling Cecily a prostitute and also threatening to kill her. Arasto Gitonga Mwita, who appeared before Senior Resident Magistrate Paul Nandi, denied the allegations.
The court was told that on May 30th, 2015 at Kanja South sub location, Embu County without authority threatened to kill Cecily Mbarire through a mobile text which was written, “Nitapanga njama u die like MP Muchai. I Promise u, u will not see the next election (I will ensure that you die like MP George Muchai. I promise that you will not live to see the next election).”
The same guy had also sent a message to Mbarire saying; “Usichukue simu maraya ya mwanamke, loosely translated as Do not pick my calls you prostitute.”
Cecily Mbarire Quest for Embu County Governor
Three legislators from Mt Kenya East region have endorsed Runyenjes MP Cecily Mbarire for the Embu gubernatorial seat in 2017.
Mt Kenya East political caucus chairman Lenny Kivuti, Senate Majority Leader Kithure Kindiki and Chuka/Igamba-Ng’ombe MP Muthomi Njuki hailed Ms Mbarire’s leadership capabilities and urged the residents “to promote” her.
The leaders said the MP has a wealth of experience, was among the most trusted by President Uhuru Kenyatta and has frequently been consulted on various matters.
“Ms Mbarire has performed well as an MP and has developed her constituency. She should be taken to the next level,” said Mr Kivuti, who is also the Embu Senator.
Prof Kindiki said Ms Mbarire can be relied upon to get a solution in the face of a crisis.
This has however not gone down well with Governor Martin Wambora who claimed that Runyenjes MP Cecily Mbarire should not be voted in to replace him in 2017 as she was married outside the county. She is married to Denis Apaa who hails from Teso County.
Wambora said voting for Runyenjes MP Cecily Mbarire as the county governor would see their resources lost.
“If elected as governor she will direct the county’s wealth to Teso where her husband’s originate from… We don’t want Embu’s wealth to be taken elsewhere,” said Wambora in March 2016.
Wambora further claimed that Cecily Mbarire had surrendered her rights of being and indigenous resident after her marriage to an outsider.
Cecily Mbarire fired back terming the governor’s statements as petty, selfish, and desperate and immature.
