    The highest level was Platinum, which comprised of Principal Secretaries, business moguls including Paul Ndung'u and the Kenya National Chambers of Commerce and Industries (KNCCI) President, Richard Ngatia, who contributed Ksh4 Million and above.

    The next category was 'gold'. It comprised of guests who were contributing at least Ksh2 million.

    Some of the other high profile individuals who attended the invent included National Cohesion and Integration Commission Vice Chair, Wambui Nyutu, and business man Kelvin Shaban.

    In his speech, Njinji vowed to engage more investors to help put up essential amenities that will be vital in making Gatundu South the best constituency in the country.

    “I will make sure Gatundu South has  a favourable climate for investments both locally and internationally which is good for our people,” Murigi said.

    On his part, PS Kibicho blamed politicians for fueling conflicts and divisions among citizens during the electioneering period.  

    “Politicians are the problem and they make us waste a lot of time and resources just to make them behave. The peace we enjoy should not be taken for granted,” said Dr Kibicho.

    Njinji is hoping to unseat Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria who is currently recuperating at a health facility in Dubai.
