KENYA: Kakamega County is back in the headlines with the bizarre things being done by her residents.
In the past, strange events such as men exchanging wives, people fighting over a meal of Ugali have rocked news.
On Saturday, a local radio station, Emuria FM reported that a man stucked on top of a tall indigenous tree over political reasons.
Stephen Makomere is reported to have climbed the tree on Thursday 16th August 2021, vowing not to climb down until 2022 general elections are conducted.
The middle aged man is demanding that he will only climb dwon the tree until DP Ruto IS declared the president after 2022 elections.
Emuria FM also reported that his wife tried to persuade her not to take such actions but her efforts were futile.
Mokomere is among the few Kenyans who are diehard supporter of DP William Ruto and might get a chance of meeting him in person.
Meanwhile, Deputy President William Ruto on Saturday, September 18, donated a car to a pastor in Malava town, Kakamega County.
In his brief visit to The African Church of The Holy Spirit in Malava, Ruto gave the presiding pastor at the church a car, before he proceeded to the Kakamega streets where he spoke to traders.
The Deputy President was joined by a number of leaders, among them Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro, Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichungwa, Kiambu MP and former Kakamega Senator, Boni Khalwale.
The locals were happy with DP Ruto’s move of gifting the priest a car, saying he is a good leader since he is not religiously biased.
Dressed in the African Church of The Holy Spirit Uniform, DP Ruto urged the congregation to support the bottom up economic model, as he claimed it is in the bible and quoted a number of scriptures that he claimed make reference to it.
