Se­na­tor hope­ful Ki­hika in­ten­si­fies Nakuru cam­paign

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Rift Valley -

Nakuru as­sem­bly speaker Su­san Ki­hika has in­ten­si­fied her cam­paigns for se­na­tor, 10 months to the gen­eral elec­tion.

She is among the five as­pi­rants who have de­clared in­ter­est in the race. Other hope­fuls are Koigi Wamwere, Karanja Kabage, Madaraka Mwith­aga and Wam­boi Mambo. For the past two months, Ki­hika has been meet­ing with groups of res­i­dents.

She ad­vo­cates the rights of women and im­prov­ing ac­cess to ma­ter­nal care. The speaker, who is the daugh­ter of for­mer Nakuru politi­cian Ki­hika Ki­mani, has formed a strate­gic team. Sources close to the speaker said the team is tasked with pop­u­lar­is­ing the speaker.

Ki­hika’s camp has been boosted by MCAs who have joined her cam­paigns. Last Fri­day, Ki­hika or­gan­ised a fund­sraiser in Ron­gai that was at­tended by Deputy Pres­i­dent Wil­liam Ruto.
