Johnstone Muthama – Interview
Machakos county senator and CORD alliance chief whip in the senate, Hon Johnstone Muthama shares a number of interesting things millions of Kenya probably don’t know about him.
Interviewer Senator Muthama, away from politics what are some of the things that Kenyans don’t really know about Johnstone Muthama?
Johnstone Muthama: To be honest It is hard not to mention politics alongside my name. First, Johnstone Muthama is a staunch Christian and a family man who believes in family values and one who would do anything to be with his lovely wife and children.
PHILANTHROPHY : Muthama is also a businessman, I am in the mining and agriculture sector. Apart from being a businessman, I am a philanthropist I try as much as I can to give back to the society by supporting the needy and helping them access education and other basic needs. I literally spend most of my free time monitoring the kids’ performances as well as motivating them.
INSPIRATIONAL FIGURE: Another thing maybe would be my source of inspiration and motivation; I always feel inspired by people who stood and still stand by the truth no matter what. The likes of the late Paul Ngei (a member of the Kapenguria six) Jomo Kenyatta and Jaramogi Oginga Odinga are actually the people whom I looked up to.
Interviewer: Should Kenyans expect Hon. Muthama to vie for a higher seat come 2017?
Johnson Muthama: Honestly speaking, no! Kenyans should not expect to see Mr. Muthama vying for the country’s top seat at all costs. What I can assure them is that Muthama does not want to be at the top but he will be at the top fighting against corruption and other social vices in the country. Rt. Honourable Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka, Honourable Wetangula and I will always be ready to fight for our beautiful country at all cost.
Interviewer: Again we almost dived into the sea of politics!. So at least we have a clue of what to expect from you in the coming years, but when it comes to sports and football in particular which teams do you support both in Europe and here in Kenya?.
Johnson Muthama: Interestingly, I support two European giants simultaneously. Arsenal is my number one love when it comes to football while Barcelona gets the other part of my heart.
Locally I support Gor Mahia. They have been doing great in the last few years when it comes to flying the Kenyan flag but if AFC Leopards performed as great as Gor Mahia, then believe you me I would have said AFC Leopards! why? because I am a winner
