Kiambaa MP-elect John Wanjiku Njuguna alias Kawanjiku has opened up on his political journey, noting that he faced several challenges before getting to where he is now.

Speaking during an interview on Monday night, Njuguna alleged that early this year, he was abducted and dumped at Burnt Forest in Uasin Gishu County for organizing a Hustler Nation empowerment event in Banana, Kiambu County.

According to Njuguna, his move to organize and invite the Deputy President William Ruto for the event did not augur well with some powerful people in government, who he claims decided to use the police to scare him.

Narrating his alleged abduction, Njuguna claimed he was arrested by police in Ruaka and later driven around only to find himself dumped in Burnt Forest with no clothes and his valuables.


“Mwaka huu wakati tulikuwa tunaleta Naibu wa Rais kule kwetu Banana. Mbunge mwenye tulikuwa na yeye alikuwa amekasirishwa sana maana alikuwa chairman wa national security na alikuwa karibu sana katika meza ya Jubilee pale juu, aliposkia Naibu wa Rais anakuja Banana, hilo Jambo lilimtia hofu.

“Kwa kuwa nilikuwa nimeongoza kumleta naibu wa rais, nlishikwa na polisi pale Ruaka wakaniabduct, wakanizungusha wakaenda wakanitupa msitu Burnt Forest…Waknivua nguo, wakabeba laptops, wakabeba kila kitu, wakanifunga kwa msitu wakaniacha…Kwa mapenzi ya Mungu nilijifungua…Walikuwa wanataka kunitia hofu nisilete naibu wa rais,” he said.

He claimed that he walked around naked until a group of mechanics came to his rescue and gave him clothing. He further noted that the matter was reported to the police and is currently being investigated.

Meanwhile, Njuguna recently became the Kiambaa MP-elect after trouncing Kariri Njama of the ruling Jubilee party.

According to Njuguna, his main focus will be to complete pending projects initiated by late former MP Paul Koinange and issue bursaries to the less fortunate in his constituency.
