Martin Wambora who is currently holding office as Embu Governor has revealed the challenges he has come across with as a public servant. Embu governor who has been in and out of court in many instances defending his seat narrated how he managed to stay on top of his enemies for this long.
The county boss revealed in an interview with the star that his life has been in danger many times after he locked out corruption cartels since the time he was holding office as Baringo District Commissioner.
Martin Wambora narrated to journalists that a lot of money used to pass through his hands and at all times he could account for every cent for all the Harambee projects, therefore Moi knew that he was a trusted person. Moi thus sent his son Gideon Moi to protect him.
Embu governor revealed that as he struggled to take control of his county, it became so intense that the ex-Interior CS Joseph Ole Lenku and former Police IG David Kimaiyo warned the governor about his security.
“They told me Governor be careful. Don’t always be in your house. Be careful where you eat. I have been security chairman as District Commissioner for Baringo so I knew the realities and what they were speaking about,” recounted Martin Wambora.
Ole Lenku and David Kimayo also instructed him to avoid night meetings completely and to desist from announcing his travel plans. “Just appear in a place and do what you are going to do and move on,” the two security bosses advised.
Talking about his enemies, Wambora stated, “The people who wanted to remove me are poor leaders. If it was a better person, I would not mind. But if I knew it’s a leader who just wants power, prestige and to access resources, I could not leave wananchi to the lions, to the carnivores to be torn apart,” vowed Wambora.
