“The events of the last few days are the least of what I expected would be trending in Kenya, but with technology anything is possible. Amalgamations of my selfishness, pride, greed, and ego have caused an untold embarrassment and shame to so many people. I am terribly sorry.”Ndambiri statement reads.
The Governor said that the first thing he did did after waking up this morning was to pray to the almighty God to give me him the wisdom to own up to my mistakes and misdeeds. What I have now is a broken and contrite spirit. I have apologized to my wife of many years who has always been my solid rock.
I have denigrated her womanhood and made her the laughing stock of many. I have sought her forgiveness and I will work hard to earn back her trust. I have let my children down. They have always looked up to me for inspiration and direction. I have caused them untold embarrassment and agony. I am sorry.
A famed philosopher once said that guilt, just like salvation, is individual. This is my cross and I beseech my supporters to allow me the latitude to carry it as it should be. This is not the time to engage in acts of mudslinging or concocting conspiracy theories. I made a mistake. I want to right that wrong in a way that heals all the hurt caused. All that I need from you is to pray for me; that God strengthens my resolve to be a better man, husband, father; to be an effective deputy governor and to inspire the youth.
The Deputy Governor asked Kenyans to put the incident behind them and focus on development issues particularly the Big four Agenda.
“Let us make Kirinyaga great again and focus on the President’s Big Four Legacy agenda.”Ndambiri said.
