“There is a group of gangsters targeting politicians and individuals they think have money in this country. The purpose of these gangsters is extortion, and I am such a victim,” said Ndambiri.

“I was set up by crooks who took me through a very agonizing moment and right now what matters to me most is about my family and the people of Kirinyaga who look unto me for guidance and leadership.”
