We are waking up to the untimely death of Hon. John Muchuki. The late Minister was a strong man and can be remembered for a number of things in different ministries;
1. Streamlining the public transport sector (Ministry of Transport): Ensuring that all public vehicles are fitted with seat belts and the passengers put on the belts whenever they travel.
2. Dealing ruthlessly with Mungiki (Ministry of Internal Security): When the illegal group of young people turned criminal and causing mayhem in the country beheading citizen in cold blood. Hon. Muchiki stepped in strongly to contain the situation.
3. Noise Control (Ministry of Environment): There was a time that major town in Kenya and especially Nairobi was all noisy. Noise from churches, public vehicle etc. Hon. Muchuki came to the aid of common man and regulated that very well.
For sure we have not seen such a bold minister like Hon. Muchuki but the legacy he is leaving behind is great and admirable.
May God rest his soul in eternal peace.
