Andrew Ngirici is campaigning for his wife, Purity Ngirici, in the 2017 election.
His first possession was a wheelchair, which his mother, Rachel Wanjiku, blessed him with after he dropped out of school.
Andrew also delivered crates of beer to Kirinyaga for Mzee Munyi to earn a living.
He was lucky when he met the late spy chief, James Kanyotu, who hired his services. It was a few years before his former teacher, Mzee Munyi, died in a car accident.
Kanyotu and Andrew’s families have long been friends, with reports that the latter’s grandfather had previously protected Kanyotu’s father. Kanyotu’s father then bought land in Kirinyaga, where he settled after his retirement.
Kanyotu and Andrew’s friendship deepened when the former got a job as a spy in the government of Mzee Jomo Kenyatta, who later served under the late Daniel arap Moi. The late NIS leader chose Andrew as his right-hand man.
“Using the newly discovered networks, Ngirica’s husband ventured into the transport sector and invested in matatus and buses,” our source confirmed.
Andrew borrowed a letter from Kanyotu, who was involved in real estate, security, hospitality, and large-scale agriculture, as well as in insurance, banking, manufacturing, and healthcare.
“Ngirici was standing alone by Kanyotu’s hospital bed as he breathed his last, so you can see how much faith the former spy had in him,” a neighbor told The Standard.
His media house, Mt. Kenya TV, is making a name for itself in the industry and competing with established houses.
In September 2018, presenters, producers, and editors at Royal Media Services and Mediamax were robbed.
