The leadership of the Kenya Mau Mau War Veterans Association (KMMWVA) has stopped the registration of new members in the country to have it to deal with the issues of current members. The announcement was made today by the association’s General Secretary, Dr Daniel Wa Kahengeri. The war veterans’ leader disclosed that currently the association has a total of 60,000 members from across the country.
Dr Kahengeri was speaking during his official meeting with the KMMWVA Kitui County members at the Kitui Central CDF offices. He assured the members that President Uhuru Kenyatta and a number of county governors have pledged to support the group's activities. He expressed pleasure at president's and the governors' pledges, saying: "Let us be patient as we wait for the support from them."
Dr Kahengeri was accompanied by the KMMWVA National Chairman Kiburu Mburugu Marete, Vice General Secretary Michael Muingai and the KMMWVA Ukambani Regional Chairman Nzenge Kathiaka among others. In his speech, the KMMWVA Kitui County Chairman, Philip N. Nzuki, highly thanked Dr Kahengeri with his team for visiting them in the county. He highly thanked them for their commitment towards fighting for them to get goodies from the government and others.
Mr Nzuki disclosed that their membership in the county is about 400 members. He assured his members that he will continue serving them effectively and efficiently as their chairman for their own good and for the good of their Kitui County people. The chairman called upon his members to pay their membership contributions properly for the good of the association. “The association can’t move without money,” Mr Nzuki told the members.
