In a case of locked emotions let loose, a bold Nyeri youth leader and political commentator has taken to the social media to express his immense love for Nairobi nominated MCA Ann Thumbi. In unprecedented show of courage, Benta Njuki alias Mkenya Mbingwa poured out his heart in straight shooting phrases.
Ann Thumbi, commonly referred to as Annita,first hit the headlines after the demise of former kibra Mp Ken Okoth. She was confirmed to have an affair with the MP and a son. Drama would later ensure after the son failed to be recognized during the MPs burial.
Njuki who hails from the same locality with the nominated MCA stated that he knew his action would cost him even politically but he had to take his shot.
“I know it will hurt many but I must declare this without any political fear. I know they are always there watching and reading ready to fight me for this but fear no man for the love is power. It has taken me long to come up with this conclusion but why? Just fear of unknown”,Posted Njuki.
Though his political ambitions are not clear to the public, Njuki is a serious frontrunner in Nyeri town politics and is viewed as possible challenger to the incumbent MP Ngunjiri Wambugu.
It is his witty reference to the biblical poetry and expression of love by King Solomon in the book of Songs of Solomon that has attracted the attention of netizens. He quoted Songs of Solomon chapter 4:1-16 with and photo of the MCA attached to the text.
“1. How beautiful you are, my darling,How beautiful you are!Your eyes are like doves behind your veil;Your hair is like a flock of goats. That have descended from Mount Gilead.
2 “Your teeth are like a flock of newly shorn ewes, Which have come up from their washing,All of which bear twins,And not one among them has lost her young.
3 “Your lips are like a scarlet thread,
And your mouth is lovely.Your temples are like a slice of a pomegranate. Behind your veil.
4 “Your neck is like the tower of David,
Built with rows of stones.On which are hung a thousand shields,All the round shields of the mighty men.
5 “Your two breasts are like two fawns,Twins of a gazelle, Which feed among the lilies.
6 “Until the cool of the day When the shadows flee away,I will go my way to the mountain of myrrh.And to the hill of frankincense.
7 “You are altogether beautiful, my darling,
And there is no blemish in you. 8 “Come with me from Lebanon, my bride,May you come with me from Lebanon.Journey down from the summit of Amana,From the summit of Senir and Hermon,
From the dens of lions,From the mountains of leopards.
9 “You have made my heart beat faster, my sister, my bride;
You have made my heart beat faster with a single glance of your eyes,
With a single strand of your necklace.
10 “How beautiful is your love, my sister, my bride!How much better is your love than wine,
And the fragrance of your oils,Than all kinds of spices!
11 “Your lips, my bride, drip honey;
Honey and milk are under your tongue,
And the fragrance of your garments is like the fragrance of Lebanon.12 “A garden locked is my sister, my bride,A [i]rock garden locked, a spring sealed up.
13 “Your shoots are an orchard of pomegranates
With choice fruits, henna with nard plants,
14 Nard and saffron, calamus and cinnamon,
With all the trees of frankincense,
Myrrh and aloes, along with all the finest spices. 15 “You are a garden spring,
A well of fresh water,
And streams flowing from Lebanon.”
16 Awake, O north wind,And come, wind of the south;Make my garden breathe out fragrance,
Let its spices be wafted abroad.May my beloved come into his garden.And eat its choice fruits!”
The charismatic youth leader summed his message to the MCA with requesting his friends to help tag her. The post attracted a lot of comments and likes with most of fans encouraging him to follow his heart to the end.
