MIRUGI KARIUKI...the passing of a patriot

Fellow kenyans, allow me to mourn the passing of brilliant minds. Following the tragic accident on monday the 10th day of april, the country has lost several brilliant patriots. Chief among them is the internal security asst. minister and the member of parliament for Nakuru Town, Hon Mirugi Kariuki.
I come from Nakuru town and as such his passing is not only a grave national misfortune, but also a personal one. He was my area mp and my leader. Despite the shrply divide political field, Hon Mirugi proved to be a unifying pillar especially in the hotbed of kenyan politics that Nakuru is. The plebiscite outcome especially from Nakuru is proof enough of the deep regard and esteem that the people of nakuru held for their great leader. Mirugi is fondly loved by Nakuru people. He played a very significant role in the fight for justice, equality and human rights and was incarcerated by the Moi regime for this. We all remember the bearded lawyer in big spectacles defending one Koigi Wamwere (Subukia MP) when the latter was being terrorised by again the Moi regime. As an aspiring leader, i can say that i was very proud of my mp. Not many mps are regular contributors in parliament, Mirugi on the other hand was a regular contributor. His debating skills left no doubt that he was adept and good at his job. We all remember him taking on all and sundry on the popula NTV programme SHOWDOWN. His sober and eloquent arguments always left me mesmerised and proud to be represented by him. never was he mentioned in bad light. He never engaged in corrupt activities.
Hon MIRUGI KARIUKI....the people of NAKURU mourn thee.
You were our son and our leader....
May the Lord rest his soul in eternal peace...

    Yup, Some of our greatest luminaries are no more. Too bad, seems that we are still left with the same old sycophants. Mirugi and Godana were brilliant personalities.

    May GOD rest their souls in eternal peace.
