The move by the nominated governing Jubilee party senator Isaac Mwaura to join the ranks of the Tangatanga group continues to elicit mixed reactions.
Among those who have reacted to the political development is the man who is set to fly the governing Jubilee party’s flag in the upcoming Nairobi gubernatorial by-election Dennis Waweru.
In a tweet on Friday, the former member of parliament offered his perspective on why the nominated senator elected to boot the pro-Uhuru camp and joined the so-called Hustler Nation.
Waweru claimed that Mwaura, a strong defender of the Kenyan head of state President Uhuru Kenyatta, had made the controversial move because money had been exchanged.
“Isaac Mwaura seems to forget too fast.Anyway his voice was amplified by the wallet.Kenyans will speak last.#NeverDrinkAndDrive, ” the former member of parliament Dennis Waweru wrote in a tweet on Friday.
The Building Bridges Initiative national secretariat co-chair attached a photo of Uhuru Kenyatta and Isaac Mwaura and his wife. He noted that the senator had forgotten what the head of state had done to him.
Dennis Waweru did not provide any evidence that money had been exchanged to get the senator to join the deputy president’s side.

Isaac Mwaura graced the thanksgiving ceremony for the newly elected Msambweni member of parliament Feisal Bader. The nominated announced that he had officially joined the ranks of the Hustler Nation, saying that he would rally behind the presidential ambitions of the Deputy President Dr William Ruto.
His critics have attacked him for being an unprincipled politician who is driven by nothing more than selfish interests.
