Jubilee Party vice chairman David Murathe’s son, Davidson Wakairu is making headlines with his latest initiatives that have unsettled the political scene.
The youthful and charismatic politician has been at the center of various initiatives with his non-governmental initiative, Vijana Amkeni.
The initiative has made him a force to reckon with in Kilifi and expanded his influence in a region that DP Ruto is keen on grabbing from the strong grip of Raila Odinga.
Davidson conducted a tree-planting exercise at the Mavoko Primary School where the group managed to plant over 1300 trees with many more set to be planted.
The exercise, he explained, was in commemoration of the World Environmental Day, with the activist promising that the partnership will bring on board other partners.
“We also engaged with the students of the school and promised to donate 30 bags of cement to help them complete the dining hall at the grounds,” Wakairu relayed.
He recently met with youth leaders in the Coastal county, some of who are part of the Kilifi County government, an indication that he could be eyeing something bigger as he seeks to expand his strong presence.
After the meeting, the budding politician issued a brief statement in which he shared that they had agreed on areas of mutual interest and cooperation.
“In line with Vijana Amkeni‘s 2021 plan of running our programmes in all 47 counties, I last evening hosted leaders from Kilifi county where we agreed to partner in environmental, mentorship and economic programmes that will benefit the youth of Kilifi county,” he stated.
In a recent interview, Wakairu further divulged that he is keen on making his own path, breaking away from the shadow of his father who is already a notable politician.
He also hinted at contesting for an elective seat in the future.
“Yes Mzee is the Vice Chair of Jubilee. If I was merely looking for a seat in a youth movement, I would easily have joined the Jubilee Party Youth League. I started my own thing because my agenda is entirely different,” he stated confirming that a parliamentary seat is in his to do list.
