Lang’ata MP-elect Jalang’o has revealed that the two workers who stole millions from him are struggling in the village.
The comedian and former radio presenter turned politician says that the two employees have been begging him for forgiveness and jobs.
He said that he was lost on what to do because the actions of the two, Eli Omundu Khumundu and Morrison Litiema, had deeply hurt him.
“These guys stole money from me at a time I need money the most. Unaeza imagine umepanga mkutano unataka kuenda kwa mkutano…wamama elfu moja wamekaa chini, umeshajipanga unakuja kwa gari unaangalia hivi, pesa ya mkutano ya kulipa hall, fare ya wamama, ya kuenda kununua chakula ya kuwapatia, yote imeibwa,” he said.
“Hakuna kitu hawakuwa nayo. When people have lifted you kutoka kwa umaskini hadi pahali umefika, do not betray that kind of friendship.”
Jalang’o then shared that despite the hurt, he was sympathetic to their suffering.
“It hurts me so much what they’re going through…if you can check their Instagram, it hurts me so much if I can show you the messages they write. I forgave them, nikawaambia they can go on with their lives…wanataka kurudi job tena, if it were you, would you bring them back? Mtu mwenye ulimtoa chini kwa maisha mpaka penye amefika,” he said.
“You know they betrayed one of the biggest trust we ever had together…it hurts me so much that walipotea. Unajua shetani aliingililia vijana wangu bana, and they stole a lot of money from me.”
Jalang’o shared part of a message one of the workers had sent him begging for forgiveness and a job.
“Hallo sir, aki naomba msamaha sana na ninajutia makosa makubwa mkubwa wangu, nilidanganywa aki na sikuwa na hiyo nia ya wizi tumetoka mbali sana urafiki yetu na undugu usiishie hapo tafadhali sana nateseka Bungoma mheshimiwa naomba tu. Nisaidia tu mkubwa wagu sitawai rudi kosa kama io sir. Watoto adi sai ata shule hawajaingia, huku niliona kukaa Nairobi bila kazi ni ngumu ilibidi nirudi tu ushago tu sir…naomba unisamehe tu sir… “
