QUOTES

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

2015: “I felt that be­ing sep­a­rated from my class would not make my life as a teacher com­plete. I de­clined all the pro­mo­tions of­fered by the TSC to be­come a head teacher and now I am leav­ing teach­ing to try my hand in pol­i­tics.”

2015: “With the urge to pur­sue my stud­ies against the backdrop of the com­mu­nity’s de­mands, my life was made un­bear­able by suit­ors who had lined their pock­ets with bride price, ready to take me for a wife at the ten­der age of 10. I could not stand that kind of talk and I told my sup­port­ive fam­ily to stand by me so as I can go to school and seek the ed­u­ca­tion I needed most.”

2016: “The strength of a rope is at its weak­est point. We have the weak­est points in this county and the lead­ers should be con­ver­sant with the geo­graph­i­cal ter­rain of the coun­try. The peo­ple must elect lead­ers who have the ca­pac­ity to de­liver on their dream.” 2016: “If it is to be, it’s up to us. It is the peo­ple of Ka­ji­ado who will de­fine the lead­er­ship of this re­gion by elect­ing the right peo­ple to elec­tive po­si­tions. A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way.”
