An aspirant contesting for a political position in Kenya has stirred controversy after taking back a goodwill donation.
According to reports, the politician identified as Henry Muthee Munyi, donated a water tank to Karurina community with the hopes that they will vote for him.
Unfortunately, he was defeated by his opponent defeated in the election and this angered him so much that he went back to Karurina, Embu to remove the water tank.
A photo shared on Twitter by RoadAlertsKE showed the spot where the tank was originally mounted now looking empty after being dismantled.
”An aspirant has taken back a water tank he had donated to the public in Karurina, Embu after losing. 😂 😂 ”, the tweet read.
It generated mixed reactions from Kenyans as some supported him while others described the act as pettiness.
@juniormyles9; I would take it back any time. See, when donating the tank, am sure those villagers promised him/her that ground. That means they lied, hence I would lie that I donated the tank.
@_victorodoyo; So what happens if he wants to run again in 2027? The villagers will never forget
@Amsoblest; This is my level of pettiness 🤣🤣🤣 Yes!! Take it all- take everything you’d given your ex mkikosana. Matter of fact, let the voters refund his money too 🤣🤣🤣😭😭😭
@TerryWangui7; This reminds me of the time when JJ Kamotho was running for a post in Murang’a . He had put up so many electrical poles with the promise of bringing electricity once he gets elected. People from Murang’a never elected him n so he sent some people to go n get his poles back.
@WaNduta8; But then, Moi took back KPLC posts from Kinangop, when his KANU man lost the elections. Bribing voters seems to be the norm in Ghenyan politics. Which invariably leads to poor Quality Leadership.
@Gilbertmwanga; Yes, public should stop this conmanship. They celebrate ua parties and tell u how u are winning before opening of voting only to give u an embarrassing count
@LewisMuuo; It means the public were not in need of it.if it were me i could have done the same,why help someone who doesn’t need the help.
@MaxwellOloo; Supported. Let the voters seek the same from the person they elected. Kenyan electorates are not serious with their future
@MoniqueNjoki; Never a dull moment in my motherland country 😂😂
@Vencha_98; Aspirants this time have chosen to be petty over going to court 😂
@damwaweru; The mental state of feeling rejected, humiliation is most dangerous phase. One acts out of anger, irrational thinking. Thinks if I take this back/with me it will make a point. With time he will either be very bitter with everyone or make fun of it always
@Mwalimu1; Call it investment gone wrong. But he’s such a short termist! Had he waited a little longer, that investment could have yielded some harvestable fruits.
