2012: “You know young peo­ple some­times, we don’t like the hard path; we want mi­crowave so­lu­tions where ev­ery­thing is done ready to eat meal. Yet in Nige­ria I know you guys love pounded yam and Eba so you know the whole pro­ce­dures of get­ting real food here takes hard work, com­mit­ment and it doesn’t hap­pen overnight.”

2014: “Fe­male politi­cians vis­ited me in hospi­tal and said, ‘This is bap­tism by fire. You will get used to it!’ I re­alised such was the life of a fe­male in Kenya’s male dom­i­nated politi­cian arena.”

2015: “Some of the sto­ries I hear about my­self just make me laugh. For ex­am­ple, if I owned a pri­vate jet, where would I park it? You would have seen it by now! Ru­mours that I was dat­ing Musikari Kombo are the kind of puerile pol­i­tics that we must stop. Kombo is a men­tor and a friend. I went to school with his chil­dren and his wife went to school with my mother.”

2016: “I have a lot to of­fer Nairo­bians and I am al­ready do­ing the ground­work and I be­lieve I will win and take the city to new heights.”
