Muthomi Njuki –  metal boxes witchcraft incidence

In February 2016, More than 60 elders in Tharaka Nithi constituency stripped naked at River Gakurume to perform an enhanced ritual, following recent series of witchcraft acts that involved dropping of metal boxes containing goats’ body parts in various schools around the area.
The elders performed the ritual locally referred to as gwikia nduuka, citing that the witches were trying to scare Form One students from receiving metal boxes that had been promised to them by Chuka/Igambang’ombe MP Muthomi Njuki.

The bedeviled boxes, which contained goat heads and horns, were dumped at Marimanti, Gituri, Rwatha and Mukothima Primary Schools last month, just a week before the MP embarked on distributing the boxes to the students.

The elders claimed they had issued an ultimatum to those behind the bizarre act to apologise, but they failed to meet the deadline hence prompting them to make them ‘pay for their sins’.

In their act, the 60 village men declared that those responsible would face bad omens such as accidents, deaths or even madness.

During the ritual, the elders prayed in their birthday suit while facing Mount Kenya, burnt sodom apples and threw dry branches as a way of cursing the offenders.

Muthomi Njuki – The Kenyatta Mausoleum Bill, 2016

In April 2016, a bill was introduced to the National Assembly by Muthomi Njuki that will enable the public to view the remains of Kenya’s founding father the late Jomo Kenyatta if Parliament passes the Bill. The bill is seeking to make the Jomo Kenyatta mausoleum a tourist site.

The Kenyatta Mausoleum Bill, 2016, provides a framework for the public to access the grounds where Mzee Kenyatta’s remains were buried and for management of the tomb as a tourist attraction site.

The late President Kenyatta died on August 22, 1978 and was laid to rest at the now military guarded mausoleum next to the Parliament buildings on August 31, 1978.

However, members of the public are not allowed to access the premises. Each year on August 22, to mark the anniversary of Kenyatta’s passing, the sitting President and members of the Kenyatta family visit the mausoleum to lay wreaths at the headstone in memory of the founding father, in what is always a military ceremony with no public fanfare.
If the Bill is passed by the the Assembly and gets presidential ascent into law, the grounds will be managed by National Museums Board.

If passed by the House, both local and international tourists will access the tomb at a fee.
