Maina Njenga Political CareerMaina Njenga and his team caused chaos at GEMA’s Limuru 2a rally since his dream was to be the head of the affiliated Kikuyu, Embu and Meru communities following the death of Njenga Karume. He went ahead to organise a rally nicknamed Limuru 2b which was disrupted by police but was supported by Raila Odinga. The ruling Mt Kenya mafia wouldn’t let him.
Together with Laikipia Senator G G Kariuki, Njenga formed a political party known as Mkenya Solidarity Movement and attracted some ODM members such as Brian Weke, Bob Ndolo and Ngunjiri Wambugu.
Maina Njenga Wealth/ Net WorthIt is hard to quantify how much Maina Njenga is worth. He is on record telling Kenyans he used to earn an untaxed salary of kshs 1 million a month plus other gifts from politicians who would visit him at night. His properties include (but is not limited to): over ten modern houses, sizeable tracts of land, his rural home on 50 acres worth 7M, his second rural home in Oraimutia on 50 acres, hundreds of sheep and cows, his Ongata Rongai home on 15 acres, his Isinya mansion on 25 acres, another in Karen, hundreds of matatus and top of the range vehicles. He also owns a church full of men. The mother of all his property investments is an 8 bedroomed home on 30 acres in Kitengela.

Maina Njenga ArrestFollowing the Mathira massacre, Njenga was held at King’ong’o Prison. But he had a secret card up his sleeve. BLACKMAIL. Through his lawyer Paul Muite, he threatened to name all the politicians and rich men who were friends of Mungiki. Miraculously, the state withdrew all charges. Incase you forgot, it was the same day Cholmondoley Delamere was also released.
Maina Njenga was driven to Jesus Is Alive Ministries where he got saved from I-don’t-know-what. I remember a Gado cartoon of the Bishop telling the dreadlocked, drug-taking new members that the offerings remained at her church. Remember he had at one point become a muslim alongside his cousin, former mungiki leader and now a pastor, Ndura Waruinge.
Maina Njenga ShotMungiki leader’s car was riddled with 25 bullet holes. While Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Ole Lenku quickly denied that police were involved, Maina has been adamant that the attempted murder was executed by police officers. Ole Lenku instead blamed infighting in Mungiki for the gun attack as authorities named those who were killed.
Maina Njenga Church In KenyaArmed police officers closed down the church in Kitengela associated with Njenga, citing security concerns. More than 100 worshipers, who had turned up at the Hope International Ministries Church, were requested to leave by a contingent of armed officers.
The officers drawn from Isinya District arrived at the church a few minutes past 9am and asked the faithful to leave. Njenga’s home is still under the guard of 10 armed officers. Authorities cited intelligence reports that Maasai morans planned to attack worshipers. This came a day after authorities stopped the burial of Njenga’s wife at his home in Kitengela and escorted him under heavy security to avert confrontation with members of Maasai community.
