"My four years in a seminary, before being expelled" - MP Gabriel Kagombe
- Gatundu South MP Gabriel Kagombe on May 10 graced TV47's Dr Ofweneke Tonight show.
- During the show, the lawmaker revealed that at some point in his childhood life, he was head over heels of becoming a Catholic priest.
Gatundu South Member of Parliament (MP) Gabriel Kagombe commonly known as 'GG' on Wednesday, May 10 revealed that he was in a seminary school for four years.
Speaking in an interview on TV47's Dr Ofweneke Tonight Show, MP Kangombe said that growing up, he really admired the Catholic priests (who were mostly whites) in his dusty village, and wanted to be one.
''As a young boy, I admired the lifestyle of the padres who were mostly wazungu. They drove nice cars. The only vehicle in my village then was a bicycle which was owned by the village photographer and the veterinary,'' MP GG said.
For him, having a car and leaving a good life is what drove him to the seminary since his was a poor family.
After four years, GG was expelled from the seminary because of an incident that he did not disclose in the show. It was then that he realised that seminary was not for him.
A decade after leaving the seminary, GG met his lovely wife of 11 years now. He says it was not easy adjusting to his new life which is why it took him too long to settle down.
''I would not wish for my children the same thing that happened to me in the seminary. If they want to be priests, then they have to succeed," he asserted.
The MP said he has set aside KSh10 million to create a revolving fund to help the youths of Gatundu South get jobs abroad. In return, they have to come back and refund the money for other young people to benefit from the program.
