President Uhuru Kenyatta's childhood driver has expressed desire to meet him in the soonest time possible to remind him of 'the good old days' when he used to chauffeur him and his brother, Muhoho Kenyatta, to St Mary's Muthangari School.
Joseph Njuguna, 76, adds that he also wants to meet the President to appeal to him to assist his jobless children as himself is 'too old' for any job.
"The last time I met the President was in the run-up to 2017 polls after I shouted his name at Kangema’s General Kago Stadium. When he saw me he invited me to shake his hand and ordered that I be taken to State House," Njuguna says as reported by Thika Town Today.
He adds: "I was taken to State House thereafter but understandably, he told me it was a busy moment for him and that he wished I visit him at another time so that we can have ample time to sit down together and chat more."
Njuguna, who was a police officer attached to State House and whose main duty was to drive President Jomo Kenyatta's sons to school, nostalgically remembers young Uhuru's behaviour and how he encouraged him to study hard and take the leadership mantle from his late father after growing up.
This is as he too recalls how Uhuru's father used to whip fellow police officers using his 'mukwanju' (man's walking stick) if they dared 'mess up' with him.
Njuguna, the blog further documents, has composed songs with national messages as a way 'of giving back to my country' despite his destitute nature.
Njuguna's wife, Lucy Njeri, notes that her husband has been craving to meet President Kenyatta and remind him of their chats while he was young, 3T adds.
Njeri was a dancer who used to entertain Mzee Jomo Kenyatta while she still had warm blood circulating in her veins.
