Murang’a leaders have eulogised veteran politician Kenneth Matiba as a resilient multi-party democracy hero who sacrificed his life for the country. Led by Governor Mwangi Wa Iria, the leaders said Matiba played an integral part in ensuring the country attained democracy. Wa Iria said Matiba was the embodiment of the true Murang’a spirit of discipline, resilience and entrepreneurship. “He was a national icon and his history is full of feats that we cannot enumerate,” Wa Iria said. His role in the fight for multiparty democracy of forward ever backward never helped transform our country to what it is today.
