“It’s here. People over profits. Every day it hurts me to see what the people go through. Born to a Maasai dad from Kajiado North, as I trace back to my roots to understand my culture and as a young leader who understands some of the challenges facing the people, I have decided to do this
“To me, the first step towards solving a problem is getting to that position of a problem solver. Twende Bunge tupiganie haki za wapiga kura!” she wrote.

“I am very serious, I am the next MP of Langata. Mark this day. I don’t go for things I can’t get. And once I have I said it start getting used to your future MP,” he said.
