Former MP Threatens To Strangle Himself If He Loses In 2017

KFormer Member of Parliament for Kitutu Masaba in Nyamira County Walter Nyambati has threatened to hang himself if he loses the constituency’s seat to current MP Timothy Bosire again, come 2017.

He said this on Tuesday morning October 27, 2015 during his speech at a funeral service of another former MP Abuya Abuya’s wife, the late Sabina Abuya.

Nyambati said that he will not accept any outcome if Independent Electoral and Boundaries Committee (IEBC) does not declare him winner, and that he would rather strangle himself in protest, according to a report on Nyamira News.

This he said is because he had done his research and was confident that he would win the 2017 elections, especially given his track record as leader in Kitutu Masaba.

He said that his opponent Bosire on the other hand, was a “political loser”.

“I have walked across Kitutu Masaba and the mood is very clear. I have majority support compared to Timothy Bosire. I dare IEBC not to declare me a winner because even a toddler can see my win as early as now. I will take a rope and hang myself if I lose the elections,” Nyambati was quoted in the report.

He also complained that Bosire was riding on projects that he had launched during his reign as the constituency’s MP, to gain political mileage.

“I have a good reason to hang myself because he (Bosire) has never launched a mega project. Majority of the projects that I started like water and roads across Bogetutu have been re-launched and he has not mentioned where the initial money we had set aside went to,” the former legislator added.

Nyambati, currently the chairman of Jomo Kenyatta Foundation publishers emerged number three in the 2013 General Election behind sitting MP Bosire and lawyer Shadrack Mose.

His term as the area MP was interrupted when the Kisii High Court nullified his election win on August 12, 2011 after a hearing that spanned three years, after which he sought to recapture the seat in a by-election.
