After founding the Warembo na Uhuruto outfit and vigorously campaigning for the reelection of President Uhuru Kenyatta and DP William Ruto in the August 2017 poll, Wambui Nyutu was sure of a state job for her efforts that primarily targeted the youths had paid off.
First came the rumors that her name had made it to the list of nominees to the Senate, a situation that would have made her the youngest senator in Kenya. However, that was never to be and Kenyans had started forgetting the gogeous face that had appeared on TV interviews and in campaign rallies selling the Uhuruto agenda.
However, before the dust could settle, Ms Nyutu was remembered by the administration in what has become the norm of rewarding loyals with parastatal jobs by the government of the day.
In a gazette notice by the Cabinet Secretary for Agriculture Mwangi Kiunjuri, Ms Nyutu was appointed to the National Irrigation Board (NIB).
Youths took to social media to congratulate Ms Nyutu, a lawyer by profession, for her appointment to the board.
Among those who sent their congratulatory messages include former SONU Vice Chair Angel Mbuthia and a host of other youth leaders and students at the University of Nairobi.
In her message, Ms Mbuthia noted that “I still remember we served in the SONU secretariat as Deputy Hansard Editors not so long ago. Congratulations Wambui Nyutu on your new appointment to serve in the National Irrigation Board. Comrades are happy Kenya is happy…continue to serve with zeal and zest.”
