What you need to know:

  • The government had taken away a double cabin car given to the family by the Kibaki regime and replaced it with a navy-blue station wagon Subaru Outback with a GK number plate which was handed to Ms Kimathi at her home in Njabini by the Nyandarua deputy county commissioner, Amos Marimba on Wednesday last week.
  • Mr Marimba said Ms Mukami had requested President Uhuru Kenyatta to give her a new car since her double cabin truck was experiencing numerous mechanical problems.

The widow and family of renowned freedom fighter, Dedan Kimathi, has now accepted the replacement of a car they received from former President Mwai Kibaki with a new Subaru Outback by the Jubilee administration.
