In Summary;

  • Fundraiser
  • Miscommunication
  • PR stunts
  • #iKUWEiKUWE Corner

Bungoma governor Wycliffe Wangamati has been accused by members of FUND RAISING FOR A PROSTHESIS for lying to the public through his communications office that he singlehandedly bought an artificial leg for Mary Nasambu when he only contributed part of the total amount for the Kitale Polytechnic student.

Wangamati came to know about the plight of Mary Nasambu through a local radio station and after she had created FUND RAISING FOR A PROSTHESIS WhatsApp group to help her raise funds towards purchase of an artificial limb costing Kshs. 150,000/=. Five weeks after commencement of the online contribution, Wangamati through his protocol officer Mr. Moses Wafula made his personal contribution of Kshs. 45,000/= cash delivered at Mary’s Webuye home. While at her home, the team placed a PR call to the county 039 CEO who was put on loud speaker

Wangamati’s contribution was later enlisted and therefore acknowledged

on the WhatsApp group’s contribution (see screenshot) as another member added Kshs. 4,000 to hit the 150k target.

Out of the targeted 150k Wangamati through his protocol officer Mr. Moses Wafula contributed 45k

What has annoyed members is the fact that the communication team made every attempt to dupe the public that Wangamati bought the artificial leg alone. #iKUWEiKUWE is in possession of screenshots send to us and can therefore authoritatively say that members feel the governor wants to bask in full glory for contributing a quarter of the total amount while trying to blind the public and/or suppress those who collectively raised over Kshs. 100,000/= prior to his involvement (see screenshots)

After hitting the fundraiser’s target, the WhatsApp group’s treasurer and Mary organized to purchase the artificial limb in Kitale from a supplier they had talked to prior to commencement of contribution. On Friday 30th April 2021 she acquired the leg.

Mary grew up as a normal girl enjoying use of both legs upto around form four when she started experiencing problems with her right leg. In 2019 she was diagnosed with Sarcoma cancer that saw her visit Chandaria hospital before returning back to school. But the reprieve didn’t last for long for shortly after she started feeling the pain and discomfort and in July 2020 her leg was amputated and she continued with studies but she now faced a new challenge especially that her Land Survey course/profession demanded that she stays on her feet most times.

It’s at this point that her friends encouraged her to do a fundraiser for an artificial leg

Mary and her mother Electine Wanjala thanked the governor for the 45k

#iKUWEiKUWE Corner;

  • Wangamati should not at any given time imagine he is doing us favors on matters Health. Health is a devolved function and its therefore our right to get services from OUR county government. The kind of PR stunts we are witnessing can only fool ignorant fellas. Its his responsibility to adequately equip our Health sector
  • The PR stunts witnessed at every turn Gov. Wangamati makes only makes me think he is the wrong person in office. Do these things quietly my fren. This is ain’t CSR you are doing, it’s a responsibility we ought to feel more as we read/hear less from your office… Its our money you are spending
