Nyeri Governor Mutahi Kahiga on the spot for pit latrine billboard


Nyeri County Governor Mutahi Kahiga is facing criticism over what a section of residents view as unnecessary and extravagant branding.

Governor Kahiga is accused of erecting a massive billboard bearing his portrait and that of Konyu Ward MCA Eric Wamumbi to announce the construction of a pit latrine.

The billboard has attracted the ire of Nyeri residents who are now questioning the county leadership’s sense of priorities.

In early April, Nyeri Governor Kahiga faced backlash after branding free sanitizers with his image despite the fact that they had been donated to the county.

Nyeri Deputy Governor Caroline Karugu has since distanced herself from the branding saga terming it a cheap publicity stunt.
