Martin Kamotho Njenga, dubbed ‘Githeri man’ has been booked at Mama Care Centre next to Wangunyu primary school in Kiambaa constituency after he requested for President Uhuru Kenyatta’s assistance.
This is according to Kiambu Woman Representative Gathoni Wamuchomba who claims to have received instructions from State House to trace his whereabouts and admit him to a rehab.
The man, who was feted with a Head of State commendation, says he approached the President at Jaracanda Grounds during the distribution of title deeds to Embakasi East residents.
However, he says efforts to speak to the head of state failed owing to the latter’s heavy security detail but conveyed his request to the president’s driver and one of his aide.
‘Githeri man’ reportedly told President Kenyatta’s aides of his struggles with alcohol addiction.
“Today, (Thursday) I embarked on a mission to trace him from his rural home in Kiambururu in Githunguri, traced his relatives who helped located him in Kayole,” Ms Wamuchomba wrote on Facebook.
