Annie Wanjiku Kibeh. Incumbent Gatundu North MP is an icon, a go getter, charismatic legislator.
Never will you hear Wakibe arguing without authenticating her case with credible facts and figures.
From her nostalgic days as a radio presenter, Wakibe floored several politicians to clinch the seat on a Jubilee ticket in 2017 and she is still seeking to defend it under the same ticket.
Wanjiku (fondly referred to as Wakibs) stands for integrity, servant leadership and is results oriented.
From education, security, youth and women empowerment, talent nurturing etc Wakibs believes in building others through mentorship and linkages with relevant resource people.
To prove how Seriously she handles matters sports, she in a Facebook post noted, “Togetger with the DCC Gatundu North Mr Kavita, CDF Chairman Wakili Ngaruiya and other community leaders, yesterday we had a meeting with over 30 football teams and 13 Men Dart teams as we engaged pn matters sports talent and youth empowerment. The youths manly youths highlighted their key concerns, challenges and wayforward.
We take pride in our constituency being well endowed with many different talents and we continue working to ensure we come up with sustainable programs and strategies to support and nurture them.
As we all know, sporting talents and the creative arts industry are major employers all over the world.
No doubt we are seriously committed to this very important agenda.”
Wakibs is proud of her track record for the last five years. She notes,
“For the last five years, we’ve been seriously at work trying to sort out the mess that was left by past leaderships in Gatundu North Constituency spanning over 20years.
I must admit it’s not been an easy journey bearing in mind that I’ve been in the courts for the 5 years all through until April 2022 that the court cases came to an end. These court case’s were engineered by design, by my political opponents as a way of distracting me from work.
All the same I thank God and the Great People of Gatundu North for their continued support, encouragement and prayers throughout the very difficulty 5 years.
I’m also glad that we’ve managed to make great progress in our Transformation agenda/ journey for our great constituency on various development fronts that have given our people great hope and inspiration. We’ve halfway managed to change Gatundu North Narrative from that of Despair/Ugly/Dilapidated to that of Hope/Beautiful/Inspiration.
I pray and strongly believe in faith that the great people of Gatundu North will grant ME another opportunity to serve them come the 9th Aug 2022 general elections for another 5 years term, so that we can leverage on the foundations we’ve put up and ensure Total Transformation.”
