March, 2nd 2021 – President Uhuru Kenyatta says that the late Juja Member of Parliament, Francis Munyua Waititu, will be remembered for his diligence in delivering his duties to his constituents.
Speaking during the burial service of the MP at JKUAT, he said Juja locals appreciated his work and voted him in for a second term.
He said, “It’s never easy for a person to be re-elected especially here in Kiambu County. If you see a person being elected twice it means that people knew and understood him.”
The Head of State added, “He has taught us that a leader is one who can stand and work for his people. ‘Wakapee’ never stole even a penny from the Government. He was a leader who cherished peace and unity of the people he led.”
Speaker of the national assembly Justin Muturi lauded the work of Francis Waititu, popularly known as wakapay in his circles and constituents.
Muturi said, “When it came to anything touching the Government, the late Francis Waititu didn’t waste time but supported the Government position to the end. He was such an ardent supporter of you (the President) and I will miss him dearly.”
He succumbed to cancer last month , while receiving treatment at MP Shah Hospital in Nairobi.
